O Mary Help of Christians, just as our father Don Bosco did with the boys of the Valdocco oratory, on the occasion of cholera,

We too, in a world affected by the Coronavirus epidemic, we want, as a Salesian Family, to express our filial entrustment to your Motherly Heart Comfort the sick and their families.

Support doctors and healthcare professionals.

Help all members of society and its governors.

Welcome everyone who died from this epidemic.

Above all, renew in each of us,

In our communities and families.

faith in your Son Jesus dead and risen,

Making Don Bosco’s words our own, we say to you: ​O Mary, powerful Virgin, great and illustrious rampart of the Church,

wonderful Help of Christian, terrible as an army deployed in battle;

you alone overcome every heresy in the world;

in anxieties, in struggles, in hardship defend us from the enemy and at the hour of our death

Receive our souls into Heaven. Amen.
