Pray and Donate for Ukraine

Monica on March 4th, 2022 | 6 comments

Dear community,

The Ministry of Divine Office is grateful and thanks you for your support through the years. We feel blessed to be in the position to aid others in small ways. Today, please join us in prayer for the people of Ukraine:

Dear Lord,
We come before you to pray for peace,
Lord, protect the people of Ukraine,
strengthen their minds and hearts.
Keep their children safe,
Be ever present around them,
Guide them to refuge and safety.
Help them to stand firm in their faith and lean on you, Lord.

Amen!

Please add to our collective prayer your own in the comments below. Lord, hear our prayers!

Please join the humanitarian effort and donate to charitable organizations involved in the immediate crisis response.

Donate through Catholic Relief Services which partners with Caritas on the ground and are preparing across Ukraine and in bordering countries, ready to provide safe shelter, hot meals, hygiene supplies, transport to safe areas, counseling support and more.

Donate to Protect the Children in Ukraine through UNICEF. Children are the least responsible for armed conflict in Ukraine, but they suffer most from its consequences. The refugee crisis is growing exponentially, increasing humanitarian needs. Half of the people on the move are children. UNICEF is working closely with the UN Refugee Agency to reach them with protection and assistance in receiving countries.

“Let’s keep the memory of this people in our hearts,” Pope Francis said on Ash Wednesday, and during our Lenten journey let’s bow and pray to God, “who is the God of peace and not of war; who is the Father of all, not just of some, who wants us to be brothers and not enemies.”

Peace be with you always,
Divine Office

  1. As a catechist in training, I learn to expect movement by the Holy Spirit, and the Liturgy of the Hours fulfills pray without ceasing. Recall our purpose in coming here to experience the awareness of God’s presence in our prayers. Once becoming aware, it is for God, the Father, and God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit to right the wrongs that plague our expressions of love for God and one another.

  2. I had a dream the other night, that people in Ukraine that have died unexpectedly, have asked for prayer to rest in peace.
    So I ask Saint Joseph, patron of departed souls, to receive the many many people that have died, and grant them the peace they have asked for. Amen.

  3. We Redemptorists have priests and brothers in KyIv and other parts of the Ukraine since the 19 twenties. I will donate through our Redemptorists of the Ukraine in our parish in Newark NJ
