VOCATION REFLECTION:

Come to me all you who are weary and find life burdensome and I will refresh you. Pray for priests, brothers and sisters, for all who offer their lives to be a sign of Jesus’ refreshing love. Pray for those who are called to join them in that ministry. (Matthew 11:25-30)

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.
