A Prayer for Peace

“Mary gave a human face to the eternal Word, so that all of us can contemplate him.” — Pope Francis

On this New Year’s Day, think of the faces in your life that bring you peace and joy. Say a special prayer for those people. And on this day of prayer for world peace, ask the Lord to smile in a special way on those areas of our world that most need the light of peace to shine on them.
