Pope Francis Prays for Peace

"Peace, peace, to the far and to the near, says the Lord; and I will heal him."  ~Isaiah 56:19

“Lord help us! Give us your peace, teach us peace, guide us towards peace. Open our eyes and our hearts and give us the courage to say 'never again war!': with war all is destroyed! Give us the courage to perform concrete gestures to build peace. Make us available to listen to the cries of our fellow citizens who ask us to transform our arms into instruments of peace, our fears into trust, our tension into forgiveness. Amen”.  ~Pope Francis, 7/13/14

"Open my eyes and my ears that I may this coming day be able to do some work of peace for Thee."  ~Alan Paton
