That in our parish and diocese we may build on the witness and vision of St Pope Paul VI, whose anniversary is today…that his life’s work of the renewal and transformation of the Church may be embraced with renewed vigour and courage – we pray for Pope Francis as he seeks the reform of the Church by revitalising the vision of the Second Vatican Council.

For peoples everywhere, but especially in the developing world, struggling with the Covid pandemic and in particular for the people of Yemen and Tigray in Ethiopia as war, famine and disease are multiplied: that their tragedy may be transfigured into miracles of peace;  that world leaders will act together for peace and humanity and to combat the Virus
