Novena to the Uganda Martyrs Day Six – 30 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 Africa!
Lead all people into the Lord’s Kingdom of holiness,
truth and life.
You who freely said “yes” to God
and became the Virgin Mother of His only Son,
remain ever close to your children in Uganda.
May they be reborn in hope,
and may God’s saving plan be fulfilled in them.
Through them, may all Africa come to know
and love the name of Jesus Christ our Saviour.
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.
