“We give our Sympathy to the Daughters of Charity and all its nuns in the world. We ask for the intercession of the martyrs in Yemen. We pray for hope and Mercy to come upon all the indwellers of the earth especially those who lack peace and security. We pray for those who are being persecuted because of their Faith in Christ. We pray for reconciliation, the pardon of the enemy, and the conversion of souls through the intercession of Saint Paul who once was a persecutor of Christ and turned to become one of the Princes of the Apostles. May Saint Paul and all Martyrs lead all enemies of Christ back to full love and to salvation to liberate them from the snares of the devil and from all evil. Amen”
