Fasting and Praying

Joining our Papa in fasting and prayer today. Here's why. Join us? You don't have to be Catholic to fast and pray with us for peace. And to beg the Lord to show you where you can be more of a peacemaker in your own life.

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God."

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury,pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
