Adelaide joins plea for Mary's intercession

The Archbishop has also invited priests in the Archdiocese to do similar in their parishes.

“The purpose of this time of prayer is to ask for the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary before God to bring about peace between Russia and Ukraine, and to implore God’s protection upon the millions of innocent men, women, and children whose lives are in danger every day until the conflict ends,” he said.

The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference has asked Catholics in Australia to find time on Friday to pray for peace in Ukraine.

Archbishop Mark Coleridge, president of the Bishops Conference, said the feast of the Annunciation, when the Church celebrates Mary’s “yes” to the call of God, is a good day for the consecration – a day when the world says “yes” to the call of peace.
