We thank you for the love, strength, and consolation that families give to those who are ill.

With cold and flu season raging, many of us are dealing with sick family members. Here is a prayer, adapted from one published by the bishops of Spain, to get us through:

Lord, you bless us
with the gift of family.

We thank you for the love, strength, and consolation
that families give to those who are ill.

Turn your loving gaze upon us
and protect us each day, and today.

May this difficult moment
serve to unite the members of this family
so that each of us begins to be more concerned about others
and becomes capable of more openly showing our love for each other
and our faith in you.

Lord, accompany us on our journey
and bless us with your grace
so we feel your closeness and aid
as we care for our ill family member(s),
and suffer and rejoice with them.

Amen.
