Lord Jesus Christ, who are called the Prince of Peace,
who are your self our peace and reconciliation, who so
often said, ‘Peace to you’, grant us peace.
Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice and
brotherly love. Banish from their hearts whatever might
Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend
the great gift of peace. May all peoples of the earth become
as brothers and sisters.
May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us.
—Saint John XXIII
