Almighty, everlasting God, look with compassion on all
those who suffer persecution for justice’ sake.
Grant them grace to carry their cross with patience in the
name of Your beloved Son, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Let the chalice pass from them is such by Your holy Will:
yet, in all things, may Your Will be done.
Grant to those who persecute, light to see the truth, and the
grace of mercy and forgiveness, for they know not what they do.
Mary, Mother of Jesus, Comfort of the Afflicted, help your
children in their time of bitter trial.
Come O Holy Spirit – fill the Afflicted with strength to endure. Amen
O Lord our God, by the sign of Thy holy cross deliver us from our enemies.
St Andrew Dung-Lac and all those who were martyred in Vietnam – Pray for us!
