Reflection Corner: Gratitude for the Little Moments
How generous are we in thanking God for the moments of grace that bring peace and unity into our lives and family? Children and loved ones?
One with the World in Remembrance and Prayer
Welcome into your arms the victims of violence and terrorism.
Comfort their families and all who grieve for them.
Help us in our fear and uncertainty,
And bless us with the knowledge that we are secure in your love.
Strengthen all those who work for peace,
And may the peace the world cannot give reign in our hearts."
