Novena to the Uganda Martyrs Day Four – 28 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, Mother of all who believe!
May all Christ’s followers in universal Church
draw ever closer together in a spirit
of mutual respect and cooperation.
May they bear ever more fraternal witness
to the reconciling love of Jesus the Redeemer.
Impelled by the Spirit of love,
may they help spread the light of the Gospel
to all the people of Uganda and all the world..
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.
