Pray with us for peace, through the intercession of the Ukrainian saints

We are praying earnestly for our family and friends (and all people) in Ukraine! We are also praying for the people of Russia, especially those who have been detained for protesting war, and for the conversion of leaders. Please join us in prayer and fasting, through the intercession of all the saints of Ukraine, especially Mother Theodora's patron, Blessed Theodore Romzha, and Mother Iliana's ancestors who died for their faith in the last century under communism.

Here is a prayer we found:

Ukraine is a land of martyrs and saints. As the world turns to war and destruction, we call on these holy men and women to stand with the Prince of Peace and pray for us.

Blessed Vasil Velischkovsky and the other 27 ‘new martyrs of Ukraine,’ pray for us.

St. Volodymyr, pray for us.

St. Olga, pray for us.

St. Anthony of the Caves, pray for us.

St. Josaphat, pray for us.

Sts. Cyril and Methodius, pray for us.

Our Lady, venerated as Mother of God at Zarvanytsia, the “Place of Disruption,” pray for us.

Rise up, O Lord! Do not let mortals prevail;

    let the nations be judged before you.

Put them in fear, O Lord;

    let the nations know that they are only human. (Psalm 9:19-20)

We fly to Your patronage, O Virgin Mother of God. Despise not our prayers in our needs, but deliver us from all dangers, since you alone are pure and blessed.

O most glorious Ever-Virgin Mary, the Mother of Christ our God, accept our prayers and present them to Your Son and our God, that for the sake of You, He enlighten and save our souls.
