In continuation of our Oscar Romero reflections, we have this month’s topic – Peace. Please join us in our prayer for peace.
We thank you for giving us your peace. Help us to be peacemakers at home and at school by loving and caring for one another. Help us to be peacemakers by listening to one another, even when we don’t agree. Help us to be peacemakers by sharing our time with those who are lonely and who need a friend. Help us to be peacemakers by thinking and praying for children who have no food or who are frightened and live in fear. Let us pray every day for peace for our families, for our friends and for ourselves. Let us pray for peace throughout your world.
This week, we have been reflecting on what peace means. The children have worked in pairs to produce reflections on peace and its meaning in our lives. We have also decorated Romero crosses with symbols of peace.
We then took a quiet moment to think about the meaning of peace in the word of God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Matthew 5:9
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John 16:33
