Cardinal Bo after church shelling in Myanmar said.

Cardinal Bo, Archbishop of Yangon, has written a letter, translated into English, appealing for an end to the violent conflict in Myanmar, something he describes as a “great humanitarian tragedy”. His Eminence wrote in the aftermath of a shocking attack on a Catholic church in Kayanthayar near Loikaw in Eastern Myanmar on 23 May that killed four and wounded many more. Pray for the people of Myanmar!

Prayer for Vocations

“Gracious and loving God, we thank you for the gift of our priests; help them to be strong in their vocation and become instruments of your love and grace. Send your Holy Spirit to give courage and guidance to all those you are calling to the priesthood, diaconate and religious life in our Archdiocese. May those called hear your voice and respond wholeheartedly to become the person you created them to be. Heavenly Father, form us all in the likeness of your Son, Jesus Christ the Good Shepherd, so that we may love you more deeply and serve you more faithfully. We ask this through Christ Your Son, the Eternal High Priest, Amen.”
