From The Canons:
 
WE ASSURE EVERYONE, AND PARTICULARLY THOSE WHO HAVE MADE OUR MONASTERY THEIR PERMANENT SACRAMENTAL HOME, THAT WE ARE FASTING AND PRAYING FOR THEM, FOR THE CHURCH AND OUR COUNTRY.
WE BEG GOD HAVE MERCY, AND GRANT THAT THIS PRESENT CROSS WILL PASS AWAY IN ACCORDANCE WITH HIS DIVINE WILL.  
WE URGE THE FAITHFUL TO REMEMBER THAT ALL THINGS WORK UNTO GOOD FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE.THIS VIRUS HAS NOT COME INTO BEING, NOR THE WORLD WIDE CRISIS IT IS ENGENDERING, SOMEHOW DISCONNECTED FROM THE DIVINE WILL. THE PRESENT CRISIS IS PROVIDING A VERY REAL MEANS FOR SOUL SEARCHING AND REPENTANCE, AND RETURN TO GOD. IT IS, ACCORDING TO TRUE FAITH, A GRACE FILLED OPPORTUNITY FOR THE WHOLE OF OUR SOCIETY TO RETURN TO HIM, THE AUTHOR OF ALL LIFE AND SOURCE OF TRUE HUMAN HAPPINESS.  WE PRAY GOD WILL SUSTAIN US ALL, AND THAT HE WILL TEMPER THE SEVERITY OF THIS VIRUS' EFFECTS FOR REASON OF THE FAITHFUL THROUGHOUT THE WORLD WHO ARE OFFERING HIM THEIR PRAYERS, FASTING AND SACRIFICES FOR AN AMELIORATION OF THIS CRISIS, AND SEEKING HIM AS OUR WORLD'S TRUE AND ETERNAL "VACCINE" AGAINST ALL EVIL. 
JESUS, MARY. JOSEPH, HAVE MERCY - SAVE US ALL, FOR GOD'S GLORY AND OUR TRUE WELFARE.
