Prayer for Peace

With all the conflicts happening in our country and in the world, what is your prayer for peace?

Lord Jesus Christ, who said to your Apostles,
Peace I leave you, my peace I give you,
look not on our sins, but on the faith of your Church,
and graciously grant her peace and unity
in accordance with your will. 
Who live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.

As Sacramentino (preparing for perpetual profession), I am call and challenge to observe the Rule of Life of our Congregation. Knowing only the text of this Rule can be oppressive for me. I am praying that one day I will be woke up to the reality of the deep love of witnessing our Rule. That there is joy in living out our Rule, no more oppressive external enforcement but expression of a genuine affection on it, not out of compulsion but an inner freedom and appreciation for the Spirit behind our Rule of Life.
