St Roch, you were noted for your goodness to the poor
and your simplicity of life.
The healing power of God was seen in you
and many were comforted and cured of sickness
when you invoked the sign of the cross.
Be with us as we appeal to God for healing
for ourselves, for those we love,
for our community,
and for all affected by the coronavirus.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
