(Prayer to be said by the sick person)


Lord, You are all justice.

The illness You saw fit to send me must be deserved, because

You never impose suffering without just cause.

Therefore I entrust my cure to Your infinite mercy.


If it pleases You to restore my health, may (Your Name) be blessed!


If on the contrary it is necessary for me to suffer more, may


You be blessed just the same.

I submit without complaint to Your wise purpose, since what You do can only be for the good of Your creatures.


Dear God, let this infirmity be a timely warning to me, which will cause me to meditate upon myself.

I accept it as an expiation for my past and as a test of my faith and submission to Your blessed will.
