Peace

Peace… is an order that is founded in truth, nurtured and animated by charity, and brought into effect under the auspices of freedom.

Pacem in Terris, 1963, #167

 

We show we are people of peace by:

  • treating each other kindly
  • turning away from conflict
  • creating bonds between people

 

   

 

Our Saint for Peace is St. Martin of Tours

 

Prayers for Peace

Jesus, Prince of Peace,

Be with your peoples

Suffering the storms of war,

In fear of thundering weapons,

Shedding raindrops of tears

For lost loved ones,

Lost homes,

And lost futures.

 

Shine on them Lord,

The sun of justice,

Bring them fresh breezes of hope,

The gentle warmth of confidence and trust

Built on a springtime of reconciliation.

Amen.

We pray for our sisters and brothers around the world

in countries where there is war and violence.

God sent his Son, so that all might have life in abundance.

Lord, give peace to your people throughout the world.

The time will come when there will be no more crying, nor pain, nor war.

Lord, give peace to your people throughout the world.

Jesus, the Prince of Peace, will stand beside us.

Lord, give peace to your people throughout the world.

We pray together for the coming of God’s kingdom of love, justice and peace.
