  1. Here is the prayer he mentioned

    Prayer in Light of the Coronavirus Pandemic

    +Metropolitan Joel of Edessa

    Lord Jesus Christ, our God, the chief physician of our souls and bodies: Who became man for us, in order to cure the great wound that is mankind; Who did not reject the ten lepers who suffered from an incurable disease, but purified them by Thy salvific grace; Who, being God-Man, passed Thy days on this earth serving and healing all who were sick and suffering; Who served and restored to health the paralytics, the blind, those who had committed grave sins, those who were demon-possessed and dually afflicted by the passions, both in the flesh and in the mind, now amiably accept our supplication, and by Thy grace expel this deadly virus that bears the shape of a crown — which has instilled fear in us and has even caused death among those who are ailing and wrongfully suffering.

    And if, on account of our many sins, Thou hast allowed for this trial to come to pass, we beseech Thee as being merciful, that Thou might lift this disease from us and from the entire world.

    But, if Thou hast allowed for this ascendancy as a test of faith, nevertheless, stop the uneasiness of the sick that has resulted from this epidemic.

    Yet, if this disease has spread because of the wickedness of the adversary or the indifference of inconsiderate people, extinguish its power, as Thou art God Almighty.

    Protect the youth, preserve those who have become ill, and heal the elderly who have been infected by this accursed virus. Also, purge us all from unrest of the heart, and instead of this, grant us health, comfort, and progress through the intercessions of the Lady Theotokos and all of Thy saints. Amen.

  2. Calling out the crucifiers of the Lord Jesus (hint: not the Romans)… Bravo! As far as I know, not even Archbishop Vigano calls them out this explicitly.
