Oh holy virgin, St. Walburga,
mercifully you lead all the sick and helpless
who implore your help to Jesus, your Divine Spouse.
He is the Good Samaritan who will heal them all.
Lead me also to Him, and ask for my deliverance
from the troubles that afflict me;
be my consoler and helper,
for you can and will help me if it be God’s will.
Full of confidence I ask this favor, and
when you have helped me I will not cease to thank you,
O blessed St. Walburga.
Prayer to Saint Walburga
St. Walburga, by your blessed life of love,
God blessed you with the power to heal,
to make whole the soul as well as the body.
Beg for us what we cannot obtain for ourselves,
and heal our world of sickness and sorrow.
May God hear you,
who lived so graciously for His glory,
and send us the healing grace we need,
through your powerful intercession.
