You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’

But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven;

for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous.

(Matthew 5:43-45)

Prayer for Peace

Dona nobis pacen

Blessed are you, Prince of Peace:
you call us to be peacemakers in you.
But sometimes we become disheartened
because evil seems so strong,
and while our resources suffice
for making strife,
we lack the implements of peace.

Blessed are you, Crucified One:
we find our peace in your cross,
and there we lay our hoarded treasures —
the burden of needing to be right,
the fear that holds us hostage,
the cry of vengeance
that racks our heart.

Blessed are you, Giver of Peace:
in your love mold us into Christ,
that through us may flow the blessed peace
you long to pour over the world —
peace as fortifying as bread and wine
shared with friends,
as healing as the balm of sunset
after a day of toil,
as restful as finding ourselves
home at last.
