The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is calling for a Week of Prayer and Awareness from Nov. 26-Dec. 2.   The USCCB is urging all Catholics and people of good will to support Christian victims in every way possible, especially with the gift of prayer, by reciting the following Novena from November 24 – December 2.

Novena Prayer for Persecuted Christians composed by Baltimore Archbishop William E. Lori

O God of all the nations, the One God who is and was and always will be, in Your providence You willed that Your Church be united to the suffering of Your Son. Look with mercy on Your servants 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 may live in harmony. Give us the grace to be united in truth and freedom, and to always seek Your will in our lives. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. Our Lady, Queen of peace, pray for us.
