instruments of peace

At the high school where I work we begin we begin every day with prayer.

On Fridays the entire school says the Peace Prayer of St. Francis.

The words weren’t written by St. Francis. The Peace Prayer of St. Francis was written in the 1900s and became popular during World War II. The words remain bold and powerful for the wars of our time.

God bless us, and may we truly be peacemakers. Amen.
