Almighty and all-merciful God, lover of the human race, healer of all our wounds, in whom there is no shadow of death, save us in this time of crisis; grant wisdom and courage to our leaders; watch over all medical personnel as they tend the sick and work for a cure; stir in us a sense of solidarity beyond all isolation; if our doors are closed, let our hearts be open. By the power of your love destroy the virus of fear so that hope may never die. And may the light of Easter, the triumph of life, shine upon us and upon the whole world. Through Jesus Christ, the Lord who is Risen from the dead. Amen.
