SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT/YEAR B
Sunday 25th February 2024
A PRAYER FOR UKRAINE
Mary, Our Lady of Kiev, Mother of God,
we ask you to intercede for the people of Ukraine,
for their government,
and all who suffer as a result of war
Be with them as you stood beside your Son,
suffering on the Cross at Calvary.
Give them strength and courage through faith, hope and justice.
May we, in our turn,
support them to prayer and generosity
that human lives may be saved,
that the injured may be healed,
that the dead may rest in peace,
that there will be peace after war.
