Pray for Ukraine at Easter

Hope for the people of Ukraine

Easter is the brightest, most majestic holiday in Ukraine, and it is celebrated with a variety of traditions. Some of them were inherited from their ancestors, keeping peculiar rituals and activities intact.

The word for ‘Easter’ in Ukrainian is Velykden’, which translates to ‘Great Day’, and it is one of the biggest holidays in the country. Following the Orthodox faith and calendar it is celebrated the week after the Roman Catholic Easter.  

People lent and fast with strict devotion, as the country is passionate about adhering to the faith.

Everyone awaited Easter day, as a festive mood would bloom throughout the country and families would come together to celebrate with food.

Not this year!

This Easter is a very different story. Being ravaged by a savage, merciless attack to which we are now also hearing about atrocities against civilians. The Ukrainian people are strong in faith and resolve.  We are seeing how much so as they defend their freedom, country and way of life.

Join us in sending messages of hope and support at Easter and send your message to the people of Ukraine in solidarity with Our Lady of Perpetual Help and Jesus the Redeemer.

Prayers and messages collected will be sent to Mykola Bychok CSsR, Eparch for Ukrainian Catholics in Oceania.

MaryI have been truly blessed praying for you and your children. I see images of mothers and young children getting on buses or trains or walking to evacuate war zones in order to save them. Sadly their men 18-60 cannot leave the country as they are needed to fight. The prayer for them is different. I make myself watch news and videos horrific as it can be and hopefully I am getting spiritually stronger in Faith. For the people in the ruins of cities and towns whose homes have been razed I pray that God's mercy will rehouse you and mend your wounds. I also pray that those brutally killed will be treated with humane respect and honour. I pray for mothers and young children that for the time of their evacuation whichever country they are in the love of the people will embrace you with ongoing care. I pray that Mary's mantle cover you and your little ones. And I wish you a Happy and Blessed Easter Season, the full 50 days to Pentecost, when Jesus spoke to his disciples of the things they could not imagine before. From The Last Supper, the Crucifixion, Mourning and the Rejoicing on Easter we undergo a spiritual journey that enriches our lives each time we allow it into our hearts. Bless all of you, Nola
