A few people have asked about our prayer for peace each Sunday in the bidding prayers at mass. So let me remind you that it echoes the prayer of Pope Francis in his consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which took place on that great Feast of Mary on June 25th this year.
God Bless, Fr Doug
