SECOND SUNDAY
OF ORDINARY TIME

 

Dear Parishioners

This Sunday is Peace Sunday when the Church throughout the world prays for world peace. Please keep this prayer with you during the coming week:

Pour out upon us the power of your love,
that we may protect life and beauty.
Fill us with peace, that we may live
as brothers and sisters, harming no one.

Bring healing to our lives
that we may protect the world and
not prey on it,
that we may sow beauty,
not pollution and destruction.
Touch the hearts
of those who look only for gain
at the expense of the poor and the earth.

Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle
for justice, love and peace

Godric OSB
