VOCATION REFLECTION:

We neither live nor die as ruler of our own lives. That is a scary, but freeing, thought. What does God free us from? What does God free us for?

(Romans 14:7-9)

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 Jesus Christ your Son our Lord. Amen.
