Day 1: War and Armed Conflict

Please join me in praying the first day of our Novena for Peace and Justice. Today, we pray for our war-torn world, especially those who are affected by the violence and destruction in Syria. Will our hearts be moved by their cry for peace and their plea for an end to violence?

“There are no winners in war; everything zeroes in on death and destruction, shattering families, creating permanent trauma and wounds in society. To overcome and learn from this we need dismantle prejudice, and reject any tendency to be powerful above others, and work hard to co-exist, live together and establish a common good.  To dialogue and negotiate for peace, everyone needs to be open-minded about each other’s welfare for the good of humanity.”

A prayer for an end to war and armed conflict.
