Blessing of Saint Francis
May the Lord bless you.
May the Lord keep you.
May He show His face to you and have mercy.
May He turn to you His countenance and give you peace.
The Lord bless you.

Spiritual Communion Prayers
My Jesus, I believe that Thou art present in the Blessed Sacrament. I love Thee above all things and I desire Thee in my soul. Since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though Thou wert already there, I embrace Thee and unite myself wholly to Thee; permit not that I should ever be separated from Thee. Amen. (St. Alphonsus Maria de’ Liguori)
At Thy feet, O my Jesus, I prostrate myself and I offer Thee the repentance of my contrite heart, which is humbled in its nothingness and in Thy holy presence. I adore Thee in the Sacrament of Thy love, the ineffable Eucharist. I desire to receive Thee into the poor dwelling that my heart offers Thee. While waiting for the happiness of sacramental Communion, I wish to possess Thee in spirit. Come to me, O my Jesus, since I, for my part, am coming to Thee! May Thy love embrace my whole being in life and in death. I believe in Thee, I hope in Thee, I love Thee. Amen. (Raphael Cardinal Merry del Val)
Pope Francis’s Prayer for the Intercession and Protection of our Blessed Mother Mary:
O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
who at the Cross took part in Jesus’ pain,
keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the all people, know what we need,
and we trust that you will provide for those needs so that, as at Cana of Galilee,
joy and celebration may return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried
our sorrow to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the Resurrection.
Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God.
Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial,
But deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen
Hail Mary, full of grace . . .
