The Vatican has released a free online prayer book to help Catholics seeking divine assistance amid the coronavirus crisis.
The 192-page book is published by the Libreria Editrice Vaticana, on behalf of the Vatican’s Dicastery for Communication and will be updated regularly.
The book, which is called “Strong in the Face of Tribulation: The Church in Communion – a Sure Support in Time of Trial” and has an image of the Archangel Michael on its cover, is divided into three parts:
- Prayers, rituals and supplications, including prayers for the sick and for liberation from evil.
- Explains how Catholics can continue to practice the faith without the support of the Sacraments.
- Gathers together Pope Francis’ reflections since the pandemic struck.
