O merciful Father, who have wonderfully fashioned man
in your own image, and have made his body to be a temple
of the Holy Spirit, sanctify, we pray you, our doctors and nurses and all those whom you have called to study and practice the arts of healing the sick and the prevention of disease and pain. Strengthen them in body and soul, and bless their work, that they may give comfort to those for whose salvation
your Son became Man, lived on this earth, healed the sick, and suffered and died on the Cross. Amen.
