PRAYERS AGAINST PESTILENCE
PRINTOUTS from ARTIST DANIEL MITSUI
For the benefit of the faithful who are isolated during the current epidemic, I am providing printable artwork to assist prayer and worship in the home. Here are pages including medieval prayers against pestilence, invoking the intercession of St. Sebastian (Sebastiane Martyrum) and the Blessed Virgin Mary (Stella Cæli Extirpavit).
I wrote my own poetic translation of the Marian hymn Stella Cæli Extirpavit. This same hymn inspired a longer Middle English poem by John Lydgate. I have made a printable page for this also.
I will try to make more printable sheets for hymns, prayers or poems appropriate to the moment. If you have any to suggest, please send them to me.
