Prayers for Victims of the Holodomor

Intro

Schools in the catholic school boards have a daily prayer. Some have opted for a special prayer along with the announcement about the Holodomor on Holodomor Memorial Day.

Prayer for the Victims of the Holodomor

Remember, O Lord our God, our reposed brothers and sisters who, with faith and hope in eternal life, perished in the Holodomor (Great Famine), whose names are know to You, O Lord. As our merciful God and Lover of Mankind remit, pardon, and forgive all their sins, both voluntary and involuntary, and grant them Your eternal good things which have been prepared for those who love You.

Be merciful unto them, and accept their faith instead of their works, and grant them rest, O Compassionate One, with the saints. For there is no man who has lived without sinning, You only are without any sin, and Your righteousness is eternal. For You are a God of mercy and compassion and love for mankind, and we offer glory unto You, to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now, and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

 

Молитва за Жертв загиблих Голодомором

Помяни Господи, Боже Наш, у вірі й надії на життя вічне спочилих рабів Твоїх, всіх братів та сестер наших голодом замучених, яких імена Ти сам, Господи знаєш, і як Милосердний і Чоловіколюбний, полегши, даруй і прости всі провини їх, вільні й невільні, і дай їм вічні Твої блага, наготовані для тих, що люблять Тебе.

Будь милостивим до них, і віру в Тебе замість діл прийми і з святими Твоїми, як Щедрий, упокой: нема бо чоловіка, що живе би і не згрішив. Ти один тільки без всякого гріха, і правда Твоя  правда вічна. Бо ти Бог милости і щедрот і чолобіколюбства, і Тобі славу возсилаємо, Отцю, і Сину, і Святому Духові, нині, й повсякчас, і на віки віків. Амінь
