BLESSING OF A SICK ADULT


As the priest enter the sick person's room, he says...

V. Peace to this house.
R. And to all who live in it.

(And immediately approaching the sick person, he adds:)

V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. Who has made heaven and earth.

V. Lord hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry reach up to You.

V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with your spirit.

Let us pray.

Lord Jesus Christ,
may Your peace and mercy enter into this house
along with my humble entrance.
Let every wickedness of the devil flee from this place.
May the angels of peace be here,
and may every sinful discord leave this home.
Show that Your name is great among us, O Lord,
and bless our living together.
Lord, You are holy and faithful,
and You remain with the Father
and the Holy Spirit
for ever and ever.

R. Amen.

Let us pray.

Look upon Your servant, Lord,
suffering from sickness of body,
and refresh the soul You have created,
so that, purified by this affliction,
he (she) may always remember that
he (she) has been saved by Your loving pity
through Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.

Let us pray.

Merciful Lord, consoler of the faithful,
we beg of Your great mercy that at our humble entrance
You will visit this 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 live and are King and God for ever and ever.

R. Amen.

(Then, extending his right hand towards the sick person, he says:)

The Lord Jesus Christ be with you to defend you.
May He be within you to preserve you,
before you to lead you,
behind you to guard you,
and above you to bless you,
who lives and is King with the Father
and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.

R. Amen.

May the blessing of almighty God,
the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
descend upon you and remain always.

R. Amen

(Then he sprinkles the sick person with holy water.)
