On this Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God we continue to pray at St. Thomas More for all those in hospital at the new year and for those receiving treatment or recovering at home. We pray also for those who are displaced and for those who are persecuted for their Christian faith around the world.
In particular we continue to pray for Helen, Fr. Jim, Guillermo, Miguel, the Christians of Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Turkey and many other parts of the world. For all refugees and those who suffer persecution.
Mary, most holy Mother of God, as we begin the new year, keep us in thy love and mercy, restore us to our friends and loved ones and keep us in peace. AMEN.
