Merciful Lord, consoler of the faithful,
we beg of Your great mercy that at our humble entrance
You will visit Your servant, lying on a bed of pain,
just as You visited Simon's mother-in-law.
Kindly come to him (her) so that,
after receiving his (her) former health
he (she) may return thanks to You in Your Church,
who lives and are King and God for ever and ever.
