1) 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.

 

 

2) For the sick person:

 

 

Dear God, Your designs are impenetrable and in Your wisdom You have sent this affliction to X… I implore You, Lord, to cast a glance of compassion over his sufferings and if You see fit, to terminate them.

 

Good Spirits, you who are ministers of the Almighty, I beseech you to second my request to alleviate his sufferings; direct my thought so that a balsam may be poured over his body and consolation poured into his soul.

 

Inspire him with patience and submission to God’s Will. Give him enough strength to support the pain with Christian resignation, so that the fruits of this test may not be lost.

 

 

3) To be said by the Healer:

 

Dear God, if it pleases You to use me as an instrument, although I am unworthy, may I cure this infirmity if You so desire, because I have faith in You. But I know I can do nothing alone. Permit the good Spirits to concentrate their beneficial fluids in me, so that I may transmit them to the sick person and free me from all thought of pride and selfishness, which might alter their pureness.
