A Prayer for Ukraine | National Review

The Three Percent Non-Solution | National Review

The Ukrainian Catholic National Shrine of the Holy Family in Washington, D.C., describes itself as “the visible presence of our Ukrainian Catholic Church in our Nation’s capital.” It is “dedicated to the Holy Family, Jesus, Mary and Joseph, and serves as a place of worship, pilgrimage, evangelization and reconciliation.” The Shrine has passed along to me a prayer for Ukraine, posted below (also available here, in English and Ukrainian):

Heavenly Father, Your Son taught us “Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called Children of God. ” In this time of great worry, we fervently pray that Your Holy Spirit sustain all the people of Ukraine to be vigilant and dedicated to peace and justice. Grant their leaders wisdom and prudence. Yet, may they also have the strength and perseverance to defend their land from all adversity and foreign attacks. Help us all to live according to your Divine Will. O God, our Father, in the days to come, we beseech you to comfort the suffering, heal the wounded, and accept the souls of the faithful departed into Your Heavenly Kingdom. We ask also that the Most Holy Mother of God extend her blessed mantle of protection over our Ukraine. Amen.
