A Prayer for Peace: O Loving God, your Son, Jesus Christ, came into the world to do your Will and leave us His Peace. Through the intercession and example of our Blessed Mother Mary, Queen of Peace, grant us the wisdom and humility to reflect that peace to the world.

May your Holy Spirit fill us with every grace and blessing so that we may pursue what leads to peace for all humanity. Amen
