"Beloved brothers and sisters in the household of God,
In addition to beloved brethren whose names we commemorated we offered prayers of supplication for our Doctors, Nurses, First Responders, Scientists, and Researchers throughout the United States and the entire world who are on the front line of humanities battle against the Coronavirus. May the unwaning light of the Risen Lord radiate in their hearts, inspiring them to find a cure. And may the Risen Lord give eternal rest to our brethren whose lives were lost as a result of the virus. May their memory be eternal! Χριστὀς Ανέστη!"
