PRAYER FOR UKRAINE

Loving God, We pray for the people of Ukraine, for all those suffering or afraid, be close to them and protect them. We pray for world leaders, for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices. We pray for the world that in this moment of crisis, we may reach out in solidarity to our brothers and sisters in need. Amen.

Our Parish

"For us Christ is everything. If you have a wound to heal, he is the doctor; if you are parched by fever; he is the spring; if you are oppressed by injustice, he is justice; if you are in need of help, he is strength; if you fear death, he is life; if you desire heaven, he is the way; if you are in darkness, he is the light.”
St Ambrose of Milan





Wednesday 13th of December

St Lucy, Virgin and Martyr
Saint Lucy's Prayer:
Saint Lucy, you did not hide your light under a basket, but let it shine for the whole world, for all the centuries to see. We may not suffer torture in our lives the way you did, but we are still called to let the light of our Christianity illumine our daily lives. Please help us to have the courage to bring our Christianity into our work, our recreation, our relationships, our conversations ... every corner of our day
Amen

Thursday 14th of December

St John of the Cross, Priest and Doctor of the Church
Saint John of the Cross was born in Spain in 1542. He was a Carmelite friar. In about 1568 he was persuaded by Saint Teresa of Avila to reform the Order. He died in 1591. He was outstanding in holiness and knowledge, as his many writings testify.
