Alive Publishing have produced a leaflet with suggested prayers and quotes from saints to encourage us during this time. One prayer from it is from Prayers before the Blessed Sacrament by Timothy Menezes:

Lord Jesus, Healer of bodies and souls, we intercede for those who are living with sickness. Your own wounds of suffering during your Passion and your agony in the garden bring you close to all those who suffer. Be a source of comfort and hope to all those who carry the burden of sickness in mind or body. Bless those whose vocation is to care, whether professionally or through the bonds of family. May your loving gaze bring wholeness and light out of darkness. Amen

Some quotes from Saints:

Without the burdens of afflictions it is impossible to reach the height of grace. The gift of grace increases as the struggle increases. St Rose of Lima

It isn’t good to let our thoughts disturb us or worry us at all. St Teresa of Avila

If God sends you many sufferings it is a sign that He has great plans for you, and certainly wants to make you a saint. St Ignatius of Loyola
