For doctors and their humanitarian collaborators in war zones, who risk their lives to save the lives of others.
Father, as I start this day, I recognise your special presence during Lent and Holy Week. May I receive your forgiveness and mercy as I celebrate the passion and death of the Lord. I offer you my every thought, word and deed for the many challenges that face humanity and the church. I remember in particular the prayer intentions of Pope Francis and for them this day.
