Saints for a Time of Pandemic

We’re all trying to stay safe – and keep each other safe – by wearing masks these days. I decided to call upon some higher powers for an extra layer of protection. St. Cuthbert’s (a”virtual chapel” put together by some seminary friends) had made a litany of saints for a time of pandemic. So I called upon these saints for my mask design. With a couple extra Jesuses and Marys for good measure.

The litany for a time of pandemic includes classic saints against sickness, like Edmund the martyr, patron against plague. You can find the litany on St Cuthbert’s website here. If you would prefer a booklet version (and your version of Word supports booklet printing), that can be downloaded here (or here for pdf).

The cloth is available for purchase from Spoonflower here.
