O God of all the Nations, the One God who is and was and always will be, who in your
providence willed that your Church be united to the suffering of your Son, look with mercy on
your servants throughout the world who are persecuted for their faith in you.
Grant them perseverance and courage to be worthy imitators of Christ.
Bring your wisdom upon leaders of nations to work for peace among all peoples. May your
Spirit open conversion for those who contradict your will that we live in harmony; and, in all
things may we be united in truth and freedom to seek your will in our lives. We ask this
through Christ our Lord.
