As you enter the season of holiday, here is a prayer for peace to help guide your daily reflections provided by The Catholic Health Association of the United States:
We pray for those who have lost their lives, those who suffer, and for the world burdened by hatred and violence. May we, as children of Abraham, embrace the principles of peace, compassion, and love. Guide us to be peacemakers, bridging divides and spreading light in the darkest of times. Grant us the strength and wisdom to work together, irrespective of our differences, as a unified force for good. May the cries for peace overpower the sounds of conflict and may the memory of those we've lost remind us of the urgency of our mission.
In this moment, we place our trust in You, the Divine Source of Peace, and ask for Your guidance in bringing about a world with greater empathy and understanding. Grant us the wisdom, courage, and compassion to bring about lasting peace.
Based on a reflection by Diarmuid Rooney M.S.Psych., M.T.S., D.Soc.Admin, VP, Sponsorship and Mission Services
