Let ours be a time remembered for the awakening of a new reverence for life, the firm resolve to achieve sustainability, the quickening of the struggle for justice and peace, and the joyful celebration of life.

Prayer for Non-Violence

God of Mercy and Compassion, open our hearts to Your grace. Give us the courage, we pray, to radically transform our own lives, and appreciate more deeply the covenant You made with all creatures on earth. Help us to respond to the cry of the earth and of the poor, as peacemakers who challenge the violence that threatens us all.

Guide us along the path of nonviolence, to reconnect with nature, to value all peoples of the earth, to consume less, and waste nothing. Pour out upon us the power of Your love, that we may protect life and beauty. Fill us with Your peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters, harming no one.

We make this prayer through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
