Eternal God, whose son is the way, the truth, and the life: Journalists in wartime — those whom despots call enemies of the people — risk their lives by telling us the truth and showing us the way. We pray for the soul and the beloveds of Brent Renaud, who died this weekend in Ukraine, and for the safety of all his colleagues, including in Russia, who are at risk. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
