Prayer: Paul VI

Lord, God of peace, we bless you and we thank you because you have sent us your beloved Son, Jesus. Open yet more our hearts to the needs of all our brothers and sisters, so that we may be better able to build a true peace. Remember all who are in pain, who suffer and die in the cause of a more just world. For the people of every race, of every tongue, may your kingdom come – your kingdom of justice, of peace, of love. And may the earth be filled with our glory.
