« Peace be with you! »

 

Good our Father, Great and Merciful, Father of all.  Your plan is one of peace and not of affliction. You sent your Son, Jesus, to announce peace to those far and near, to reunite people of all races and origins as one family.

 

 

 

 

Listen to the cry of all your people, the supplication, full of sadness, of all humanity;

never again war,  an aimless adventure without return,

never again war, spiral of grief and of violence;

no to war that threatens all your creatures in heaven, on earth and in the sea.

 

 

 

In communion with Mary, Mother of Your Son, we beg

 

Speak to the hearts of those responsible for the future of all, Stop the logic of reprisals and revenge, Inspire, through your Spirit, new solutions, generous and honorable acts, dialogue and patient waiting, which are more fruitful than the rapid decisions to war.

 

 

 

 

Grant, during our time, days of peace

 

 

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

Where there is discord, let me sow harmony.

Where there is deceit, let me bring truth.

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy;

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;

to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love.

 

For it is in giving that we receive;

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


St. Francis of Assisi
