Weekly Bulletin for the Weekend of Sunday March 13

Молитва за Україну | Prayer for Ukraine - Hoosli Ukrainian Male Chorus:

With our song, we pray for God to protect Ukraine from the Russian invasion. May He grant all Ukrainians the strength to weather these difficult times in defense of freedom and democracy. Our prayers are with the armed forces and citizens of Ukraine, as they defend their homes, families, and their very freedom. May our voices join those of all free nations around the world as we #STANDWITHUKRAINE in her time of need. Freedom will prevail! Слава Україні! Героям слава! Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the heroes!

💕“It is providential that we have reached a point where restrictions can be removed. This time (Great Lent) of preparation for Easter is an ideal moment for parishes to undertake special efforts to welcome the faithful home once again.

💕For Ukrainian Catholics, participation in the Sunday Eucharist is a sacred obligation that was suspended only temporarily for health reasons, and is now being is the time to encourage our faithful to return to a physical participation in Sunday services, unless they are truly unable to do so or at high risk.

Prayerfully Yours,

Bishop Bryan

Prayer of St. Ephraim

Lord and Master of my life,

keep me from being lazy, apathetic, selfish, and boastful. (Prostration)

Instead, bestow on me, your servant,

the spirit of integrity, humility, patience, and love. (Prostration)

Yes, O Lord and King,

let me see my own sins

and not judge my brothers and sisters;

For you are blessed forever and ever. Amen (Prostration).

Молитва св. Єфрема

Господи і Владико життя мого!

Духа лінивства, недбайливости, властолюбя і пустомовства віджени від мене. Духа чистоти, покори, терпеливости й любови даруй мені, слузі твоєму.

Так Господи, Царю! Дай мені бачити гріхи мої і не осуджувати брата мого, бо ти благословенний на віки вічні. Амінь.
