AS 2015 COMES TO A CLOSE, LET US PUT FEAR BEHIND AND FACE THE NEW YEAR WITH COURAGE AND RESOLVE FOR WHICH WE PRAY
PRAY, PRACTICE PEACE in 2016
God, Our Father grant us the grace to forgive, but not forget the violence and terror, death and destruction and the deep divisions across the world this past year. Let us not forget those lives lost upholding your peace.
God, grant your intercession now, as in the past and in the future. We implore your help in rejecting all who embrace violence, practice terror and follow an ideology mired in nihilism.
God, guide and protect us as we move forward in a new year with courage, not fear. Let us reject those who divide, embrace the transparency in truth, find unity in our resolve and receive your gift of serenity and peace present each day.
