O God, cast Your glance upon Lithuania, which today is travelling a dolorous way of the cross.

May its arduous lot bring, not ruin, but the resurrection of the nation.

May our voice of apology reach You, O heavenly Father, through the cloudiness of our sins, for grave transgressions have oppressed our nation, which is as if shackled.

Many of its children are no longer aware of You, Father, nor of their eternal purpose.

May this cup of suffering soon pass from our nation.

Until You draw near to Your suffering children, O Lord, help us to bear patiently and with perseverence this burden of oppression, which dims the sun for us and pains our hearts.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. Our Father. Hail Mary. Glory be to the Father.
