LET US PRAY FOR OUR PRESECUTED BROTHERS AND SISTERS
O God of all the nations, the One God who is and was and always will be, in Your providence You willed that Your Church be united to the suffering of Your Son. Look with mercy on Your servants who are persecuted for their faith in You. Grant them perseverance and courage to be worthy imitators of Christ. Bring Your wisdom upon leaders of nations to work for peace among all peoples. May Your Spirit open those who contradict Your will, that we may live in harmony. Give us the grace to be united in truth and freedom, and to always seek Your will in our lives. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, Is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians, pray for us.
