Let us join our Benedictine Sisters in praying:
We pray for strength and courage for all leaders.
We pray for protection for all those who are vulnerable.
We pray for an end to oppression and injustice.
We pray for a commitment to truth, the foundation of peace.
We pray for an abundance of truth, hope, beauty, compassion and nonviolence for all beings on in this nation, and around the globe and for the very planet itself.
We pray in the words of the World Peace Prayer:
Lead us from death to life, from falsehood to truth.
From despair to hope, from fear to trust.
Lead us from hate to love, from war to peace
Let peace fill our hearts, let peace fill our world, let peace fill our universe.
