We pray for all the places in the world where there is animosity and conflict, remembering especially the peoples of Ukraine and Russia, recently consecrated by Pope Francis to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May hearts and minds be converted to Christ's way of humility, peace and reconciliation, and may those who are the targets of violence and oppression be protected and delivered to safety.

Lord, hear us.
