Please join us in praying for peace in solidarity with our sisters and brothers in Cameroon.

Bishop Andrew Nkea of Mamfe Diocese said in his statement following the death of Fr Cosmas Ondari MHM (right) on 21 November,

Since December 2017, at the end of every Mass in the Diocese of Mamfe, we pray the prayer of St Francis for peace. I call on all our Christians to intensify this prayer and not to relent, because God will surely not abandon his people. We surrender everything to Jesus the Prince of Peace.

This Advent, please pray the Prayer of St Francis each day for our sisters and brothers in Cameroon.

Lord, make me
an instrument of your peace

Where there is hatred,
let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, Joy.

O Divine Master grant that I may
not so much seek to be consoled
as to console;
To be understood,
as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
and it is in dying that we are
born to eternal life.
