13. BLESSING OF LINENS FOR THE SICK

P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.

All: Who made heaven and earth.

P: The Lord be with you.

All: May He also be with you.

Let us pray.

Lord Jesus Christ, who, at a touch of the hem of your garment, healed the woman suffering from hemorrhage; who throughout your life on earth healed many other sick; who by your Apostle Paul cast out infirmities and evil spirits from the sick when they touched his handkerchief and leather apron; grant, we beseech you, that all who will be clothed or be covered with these various linens for the sick which we bless + in your name, may obtain health of mind and body. We ask this of you who live and reign forever and ever.

All: Amen.

They are sprinkled with holy water.
