January 2010: World Day of Prayer for Peace
Micah 4:1-4; Psalm 72; James 4:1-10; Matthew 5:20-24
Our need for peace is great. We need peace in our hearts and minds, peace in our families, peace in our churches, peace in our city streets, peace in our towns and states, peace in our nation and peace between nations, peace on our beautiful earth, peace that surpasses human understanding. There are many ways to pray for peace, as there are many ways to work for peace. If your parish offers a Mass during the month of January for the World Day of Prayer for Peace, please attend and pray for peace.
Take some time every day to pray for and envision peace.
