Novena to the Uganda Martyrs Day Three – 27 May
O God, who in Your love and mercy
was pleased to send missionaries to Uganda
to bring the light of Christ to all the peoples,
we thank You for the gift of the
Holy Martyrs of Uganda, our ancestors in faith,
whom You gave the strength to overcome sin and the
anguish of torture and to bear witness to the truth.
Mary, Queen of Martyrs!
To you we commend the Christians of this country.
May the noble example of Saints Charles Lwanga
and the Uganda’s Martyrs
inspire them to offer their lives
as a sacrifice pleasing to God.
May their faith in Christ be seen
in the holiness of their lives
and in their charity towards their brothers and sisters.
To the Holy Martyrs, we beg for intercession,
be pleased to hear our prayer and pray for us that this,
our special request may be granted
(make your intention)
Holy Martyrs of Uganda, we honour and praise you!
Please pray for us!
O heavenly Father, we make our prayer
through our Lord, Jesus Christ, in union with the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever, amen.
