Fr Robert McCabe introduces a prayer resource circulated by the Irish Bishops in response to the recent call from Pope Francis for people to pray for peace.
Special Prayers for Peace for Parishes
As a response to the request from Pope Francis for all the faithful to pray for Christians fleeing the Iraqi city of Mosul, and to “persevere in prayer for those situations of tension and conflict that continue in different parts of the world, especially in the Middle East and in the Ukraine”; and as a follow up to the statement by Bishop McAreavey, Chair of the Council for Justice and Peace, asking for prayers for peace for the Middles East the following prayer for peace resource has been made available to parishes.
The prayers for peace resource includes prayers which can be used at Masses and in other parish settings as well as for personal use.
