At our New Years Eve Vigil for Life & Peace we blessed our refurbished Peace pole – this week it was reinstalled.

Blessed be the God of Peace, who breaks our stony hearts & dissolves the might of nations in the graced waters of hope.

Blessed be the God of Peace, who silences the pride of rulers and quiets the raging storm by the whispered prayer of faith.

Blessed be the God of Peace, who brings home the warrior, and restores the refugee through the living power of love.

God of Peace, Son of Justice, send forth your Spirit: ignite our hearts with passion, & our minds with wisdom, for the end of hateful war, & the healing of the world now & forever. Amen.
