The opening prayers called for an end to the wars in Ukraine and the Middle East, as well as for the protection of persecuted Christians worldwide. Additionally, a well-known prayer of Eastern Christians, “Heavenly King,” was read in Icelandic.

“We will persist in calling on the Holy Spirit to grant us a heart of unity and peace, allowing Christians to bear witness to the Gospel of Christ with mutual love to the world,” said Fr. Mykhailo Ivaniak, CSsR.
