In Fr. John Dear’s Christmas prayer for peace he asks God to “help us be better practitioners of peace, contemplatives of peace, teachers of peace, apostles of peace, prophets of peace.” That is our hope for you this weekend and in the coming year as we walk the path of peace and nonviolence together.
Thank you, God of peace, for announcing the coming of peace on earth and for coming among us to make peace. Thank you for siding with the homeless, the refugee, the marginalized, the immigrant, the outsider, the disenfranchised. Thank you for being good news for the poor and the oppressed.
