Novena to the Uganda Martyrs Day Seven – 31 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 Missionaries!
Strengthen Priests and Religious
in fidelity and apostolic zeal,
and grant that more and more young people
may respond generously to God’s call
to serve Him in the Church.
By your loving intercession,
may Christians be beacons of hope,
letting their light shine before men,
a leaven of Gospel values
working for the spiritual and moral renewal
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.
