Thursday of the Second Week of Advent
The Light of Peace
“Let us learn from Christ how to pray, to forgive, to sow peace, and to be near those in need.” -Pope Francis
Dr. Griena Knight-Davis, Ed.D., is the Principal of Holy Family Catholic Academy in Birmingham, Alabama. She is a lifelong parishioner at St. Mary’s Parish in Fairfield, Alabama.
Prayer for Peace
during this season when many people,
whether they are Christian or not,
act out of goodwill towards others,
our thoughts and prayers turn to peace.
We long for the day when
“swords” are turned “into plowshares,”
and “spears into pruning hooks.”
As we await the coming of the Prince of Peace,
fill our hearts with Your Peace,
and give us the strength to make peace
in Your beloved world.
We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
-Father Phil Paxton, CP
