VOCATION REFLECTION: “The harvest is rich, but the workers are few. Ask the harvest master to send workers into the harvest.” Pray for vocations! (Luke 10:1-9)
PRAYER FOR PEACE IN SOUTHERN AFRICA
O God of justice and love, bless us the people of Southern Africa and help us to live in your peace. Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred let me sow love; where there is injury, let me sow pardon; where there is discord, let me sow harmony. Divine master, grant that I may not so much seek to be understood, as to understand, to be loved as to love, to receive sympathy as to give it. For it is in giving that we shall receive, in pardoning that we shall be pardoned, in forgetting ourselves that we shall find unending peace with others. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
