Peace: A Prayer

Christ is the light
which illuminates our existence

Before this light
the darkness of evil and war and sin
will not prevail

Even death is defeated
for God’s love is eternal

God desires communion with us
and makes us enter beyond death
into his eternal life

from Parkminster Abbey

"The world will never be the dwelling place of peace till peace has found a home in the heart of each and every person, till every person preserves in himself [or herself] the order ordained by God to be preserved." (Pope John XXIII, Pacem in Terris)
