St. Elizabeth, although you were born into royalty,
you saw God in the poor of your country.
With your wealth, you cared for the poor
and the suffering, and built hospitals for the sick.
You saw your work as an extension of your faith.
Move my heart to see all those who suffer with compassion.
Remove all doubt and judgement from my soul
and help me see all as you saw them: Children
of God and reflections of our Creator.
Please pray for those who care for the sick and poor,
and watch over all those who work in hospitals,
especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Amen.
