O God, Creator of the universe, renew for us the wonders of your mercy: send forth your Spirit to work in the intimacy of our hearts, that enemies may begin to dialogue, that adversaries may shake hands, and that all peoples may encounter one another in harmony. May we all commit ourselves to the sincere search for true peace which will extinguish all arguments; may we commit ourselves to charity which overcomes hatred; may we commit ourselves to forgiveness which disarms revenge. Amen (Adapted from a prayer by St. John Paul II)
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P.
