through the murder of your Son. And at the moment of His death He made all His disciples your 
children. Please pray for your many children who have perished in this plague. Please guide those 
in need through the torments of purgatory. Please welcome them swiftly home to heaven with the 
sweet love of a mother. And as they receive your gentle embrace, please also console their loved

awaited with joy and hope the resurrection of your Son on Easter Sunday. As we go through the early 
days of this season of Spring, please help our hope and confidence sprout up again as well. Many of 
us are bored. Many of us are scared. Many of us are downcast and brokenhearted. Please bring us 
with you into the spirit you had on Holy Saturday. Please give us hope in times of silence and 
emptiness, times like now. Please commend our prayers to God most merciful, and be with us

Day 6 (3/22): Our Lady of Eunice, Queen of our City, hear our prayer. We come to you today, who 
gave flesh to your Son, that He might give us His flesh in the Eucharist. You are the Mother of the 
Eucharist. Look now with compassion on so many of us on this Sunday, the day when we normally get 
to greet our Lord in the sacramental flesh. We are brokenhearted. And yet we remember that even 
you, greatest of God’s saints, were not present at the first Mass on Holy Thursday. We know that 
even you, Mother of God, almost certainly had to go for long days without greeting your Son in the 
Eucharist as the apostles carried out their evangelizing mission, and you stayed home. Please 
increase our love for your Son in the Eucharist. Please make this a time not of dying faith but 
rather rising hunger for the beauty of the Mass. Please commend our prayers to God most merciful, 
and be with us throughout this time of plague. (At this point mention your own special intentions.

Day 7 (3/23): Our Lady of Eunice, Queen of our City, hear our prayer. We come to you today, the new 
Eve who sanctified the world by your labor, even the simple labor of washing dishes and folding 
clothes. The work week begins again today for many. Many cannot stay home, even though they wish 
to. Many must provide for their families, and provide for their society, and so put both themselves 
and their loved ones at risk. Be a bulwark and a protection to all those who must work now. Keep 
them safe, for they labor not for the sake of greed but for the sake of love and responsibility. 
Please commend our prayers to God most merciful, and be with us throughout this time of plague. (At

Day 8 (3/24): Our Lady of Eunice, Queen of our City, hear our prayer. We come to you today, Mother 
of Love most pure. As our tempers shorten, as our frustrations grow, as the grind and the fatigue 
and the pain of the days seem to mount ever higher, please teach us that pure and mighty love for 
each other that you have for all. Most of us have never faced something like this before. We have 
no practice. All the more do we need your help to love each other as we should. Please commend our 
prayers to God most merciful, and be with us throughout this time of plague. (At this point mention

Day 9 (3/25): Our Lady of Eunice, Queen of our City, hear our prayer. Today we conclude our novena, 
dearest mother. Today the Church throughout the world celebrates your yes, your consent to God’s 
will. Today we remember when the Son of God became your Son as an embryo in your womb. Please help 
us say yes to the will of God. We repent of all the times we have said no, and made the world a 
poorer place for it. Please help us welcome Christ as He comes to us now, secretly, quietly, 
within, in a way the world does not know. We miss seeing Him. We miss celebrating His mysteries. 
But we know He has not left us. Please give us the faith to welcome Him within, as you did. Please give us the faith to say yes to the will of God, as you did. Please 
commend our prayers to God most merciful, and be with us throughout this time of plague. (At this
