A prayer to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton to help you through grief and loss

Let the patron saint of grief lift you up in times of difficulty.

The war against the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed everyone’s daily lives. It is a fight that is undoubtedly painful, stressful, and difficult for all us. But nothing is more painful and challenging than grieving the loss of a loved one in these times of darkness.  It takes mental, physical, and especially spiritual strength to go through it all.

Praying to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, also known as Mother Seton, the patron saint of grief, might help you go through this journey. She herself experienced the deaths of many loved ones in her own life and suffered other significant losses as well.

A Prayer of Grief

O holy and venerable St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, you knew the pain and anguish parents feel at the death of a child as you experienced this pain several times.

I ask you to pray for (name person) and all who have lost children.

Place them in the Blessed Mother’s arms and ask her to go with you to the Holy Trinity and pray they have the grace, strength, and courage they need to grieve the loss of their beloved children and in time that they experience healing and find new joy in their memories of their children.

Intercede on behalf of the children who have died before their parents and ask the Lord to welcome them into eternal peace in Heaven with Him.

I ask all this through Christ our Lord.   Amen.
