"Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called the Children on God"
At this hour, we fervently pray that Your Holy Spirit may inspire
men and women in Ukraine to become Peacemakers.
May they seek reconciliation and dialogue
and end the violent confrontation and killing.
May they restore tranquility to their nation
and restore human rights, democratic principles
and religious liberty to their troubled land.
God, our Father, we beseech you to comfort
the suffering, heal the wounds and accept
the souls of the departed into
Your Heavenly Kingdom.
And may the Most Holy Mother of God,
extend her Blessed Mantle of Protection over Ukraine.
And may each of us always live our lives
as instruments of Your Peace.
