A Prayer for Peace
Lord Jesus Christ,
You are the true King of peace.
In You alone is found freedom.

 

Please free our world from conflict.
Bring unity to troubled nations.
Let Your glorious peace reign in every heart.

 

Dispel all darkness and evil.
Protect the dignity of every human life.
Replace hatred with Your love.

 

Give wisdom to world leaders.
Free them from selfish ambition.
Eliminate all violence and war.

 

Glorious Virgin Mary,
Saint Michael the Archangel,
Every angel and saint:
Please pray for peace.
Pray for unity amongst nations.
Pray for unity amongst all people.
Pray for the most vulnerable.
Pray for those suffering.
Pray for the fearful.
Pray for those most in need.
Pray for us all.

 

Jesus, Son of the Living God, have mercy on us.
Jesus, hear our prayers.
Jesus, I trust in You!

Amen

Prayer for Peace—St. John Paul II

Lord Jesus Christ, who are called the Prince of Peace, who are Yourself our peace and reconciliation, who so often said, “Peace to you” – please grant us peace.

 

Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice and brotherly love. Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace.

 

Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace.

May all peoples on the earth become as brothers and sisters.

 

May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all. Amen.

Are You or Someone You Know Divorced?

Divorced

We cannot emphasize enough on the importance of Praying the Rosary. The Rosary is a way of life; a life of obedience to God’s will. It allows you to see and experience the journey of our Lord Jesus Christ, right here on earth, through it’s Decades and Mysteries. When we pray the Rosary, we approach Christ through Mary.

We hardly need elaborate on the multitude of crises that fill the globe, particularly the Coronavirus Pandemic. Sadly, many are being swept away by an enormous flood of the dreaded virus and people are succumbing to an overwhelming sense of anxiety and discouragement. In these dark days, we must not be afraid but step out in faith and once again turn to the rosary, calling on the Immaculate Virgin to come to our assistance and put our enemies to flight. We must pray and fast with a living faith and a firm confidence—and there is no better way to do this than by praying the Holy Rosary.

 

Our Holy Father Pope Francis invites us during these challenging times to “heal the World through Prayer”. He has called for a Global Prayer Marathon for the entire month of May, praying for an end to the Pandemic. It commences on Saturday, 1st of May until Monday, 31st of May 2021. Let us come together and unite ourselves in unceasing and intercessory Prayers as there is much power in united Prayers. Let us keep our immediate families in our Prayers, while also praying for our Parish Family, our City, our Province, our entire Nation and the World at large.

For further information, please feel free to connect with Robin (#416-456-6721) and Tina (#647-871-8462).

MAY GOD BLESS US ALL AND KEEP US SAFE !
