Pope Francis announced that he will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Friday, March 25th, 2022 from Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

In solidarity with all the churches, let us join our hands in prayer for the restoration of peace in Ukraine and Russia. May the Lord Jesus give our sisters and brothers of Ukraine courage and strength. May His light shine through this darkness.

On March 25, feast of the Annunciation, let us ask the Blessed Virgin Mary to intercede for the people, protect the children and give them a new hope.

Let us also pray for the upcoming visit of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis delegations with Our Holy Father Pope Francis at the Vatican which is now scheduled to take place from March 28 to April 1st 2022. May they experience peace and reconciliation.

Let us pray:

Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you, blessed art thou amongst woman and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
