Prayer chain launched for PM Orbán

A parish in the Slovakian town of Ipolybalog (Balog nad Ipľom in Slovakian) has launched a “prayer chain” for Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, reports Hír TV from the Slovakian publication Új Szó.

The purpose of the prayer is to provide the Prime Minister with enough strength in his fight against the European Union. Those who join the chain are required to repeat the prayer, which was written by a Benedictine monk living in Rome, five minutes every day for half a year.

The Slovakian Conference of Bishops considers the prayer chain a private action and is taking no position on the matter.
