Catch Up

I was going to watch Friends again after my work but my former office mates started a video conferencing. So, we had a catch up session for a few minutes.

We just checked on each other, talked about life in this time of c oronavirus, memories we share and and our work when we were still in the same company. It gave me a sense of normalcy.

Talking with people I've known before this pandemic about our lives pre-c oronavirus helped my sanity somehow.

Gratitude list

  1. Catching up with friends
  2. God's steadfast love
  3. Entertaining videos on YouTube
  4. This imperfect but blessed life
By the way, here's the Oratio Emparata you can pray for C OVID-19:

Oratio Emparata

God our Father,
we come to you in our need
to ask your protection against the C OVID 19
that has disturbed and even claimed lives.

We pray that you guide the people
tasked to find cures for this disease and to stem its transmission.
Protect the medical experts that they may minister to the sick
with competence and compassion.

We pray for those afflicted.
May they be restored to health soon.
Protect those who care for them.
Grant eternal rest to those who have died.

Give us the grace in this trying time
to work for the good of all and to help those in need.

We implore you to stop the spread of this virus
and to save us from our fears.

Grant all these through our Lord Jesus Christ your Son
who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.

We fly to Your protection, oh Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our petition in our necessities,
but deliver us always from all dangers,
Oh, glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.

Our Lady, health of the sick, pray for us.
St. Raphael the Archangel, pray for us.
St. Roch, pray for us.
St. Lorenzo Ruiz, pray for us
St. Pedro Calungsod, pray for us.
