An Angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said “Get up and take the child and his mother, flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is about to snatch the child and destroy him.”
We hear the prayers of your faithful people facing persecution and destruction of their homes and livelihoods. So many have had to flee their countries and are living in refugee camps with an uncertain future. Grant that they may not lose hope. Be with them in their distress and may they one day come to know that their struggles have not been in vain.
