A Prayer for Peace
on the feast of our
Holy Father Saint Benedict

St. Benedict, you were a man of peace.
You walked the paths of peace your whole life long
and led all who came to you into the ways of peace.

Help us, St. Benedict, to achieve peace:
peace in our hearts,
peace in our homes,
peace in our sorely troubled world.
Through your powerful intercession with God,
help us to be peacemakers.
Aid us to work for peace,
to take the first step in ending bitterness,
to be the first to hold out our hands
in friendship and forgiveness.

Beg God to let peace permeate our lives
so that they may be lived in God's grace and love.
And at the end of our lives,
obtain for us the reward of peacemakers,
the eternal blessed vision of God in heaven.
