Holy Week 2022 + Good Friday Intercession for Ukraine

Happy Holy Week | GuidepostsThe Vatican’s liturgy office has not be issued COVID-19 guidelines for Holy Week liturgies this year, but it has invited Catholics to join in the Church’s prayers for peace.
“In view of the ongoing slowdown of the pandemic, albeit at different rates in individual countries, we do not intend to offer any further guidelines for the Holy Week celebrations,” the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments said in a note to bishops on 25th March.
In recent days the Holy Father has repeatedly invited us to pray, asking God for the gift of peace for Ukraine. In the Celebration of the Passion of the Lord on Good Friday, the liturgy invites us to raise our petitions to God for the Church and for the whole world, including for those in public office and those in tribulation. Let us now make these prayers our own for all our brothers and sisters who are experiencing the horror of war, particularly in Ukraine.
In a situation of grave public need, the diocesan Bishop may permit or order the addition of a special intention during the Solemn Intercessions. An additional intercession for Ukraine is available in English and Latin, including the Missal chants.
