Almighty, ever-living God, Your incarnate Son taught us that those who suffer for Your Name are blessed.
Give love for their neighbor to all people of goodwill.
Inspire rulers and governments to work tirelessly for peace, justice, and freedom for all.
Give us a spirit of solidarity and of service for those who suffer and who are poor, that we may bring to them that love Your Son made manifest by His suffering and death on the Cross.
Help us to recognize the face of the Evil One in our day and give us the strength and means to confront his many works. Amen.
