The focus of these texts will be one of hope, especially for those who are persecuted for practicing their faith.

The texts include liturgies used by Eastern Rites and it also touches on a document Benedict XVI signed during his visit to Lebanon. That document deals with the situation of Christians living in the Middle East.

The texts include a call to stop the abuse power. They also call for an end to attacks carried out by religious extremists.

The defense of life is also a central part of the prayer, which includes constant references to the Fathers of the Church, both from the East and West.
