Murphy’s request, we are asked to pray this prayer privately, and we are
encouraged to use this prayer as a part of all meetings and gatherings held here
Lord Jesus Christ, who are called the Prince of Peace,
Who are yourself our peace and our reconciliation,
Who so often said ‘Peace to you’,
Grant us peace!
Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice and
Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace.
Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the
great gift of peace.
May all peoples of the earth become as brothers and sisters.
May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us
Mary, Queen of Peace, Pray for us!
(Pope Saint John XXIII)
