Take a moment to say this prayer to Passionist Saint Gabriel Possenti ( 1838-1862). Father Victor Hoagland, C.P., some years ago, published this prayer in a booklet printed by the Passionist Missionaries, (offices are now located in New York). Unfortunately, Saint Gabriel died from the tuberculosis. This pandemic afflicted so many people in Europe and the United States from the mid-nineteenth century until the early decades of the twentieth century. The sorrow, personal sufferings and death faced by Gabriel as a young man remind us of the heavy cross of Covid-19 that has been carried by so many people. We have seen this in the news. For soem of us it hits closer to home because those who have died are friends and family.
