Statement of solidarity for Ukraine

A statement of solidarity from Bishop Robert Byrne on behalf of the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle and the local Roman Catholic community.

God of compassion,
whose Son Jesus Christ, the child of Mary,
shared the life of a home in Nazareth,
and on the cross drew the whole human family to himself:
strengthen us in our daily living
that in joy and in sorrow
we may know the power of your presence
to bind together and to heal;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

A Prayer for Family Life
