11 November marks the centenary of the conclusion of World War One (1914-1918), ‘The war to end war’. We are all invited to join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network in praying this month’s intention: In the Service of Peace
Text of November intention:
“We all want peace. It is desired above all by those who suffer its absence.
Let us remember that Jesus also lived in times of violence. He taught us that true peace is in the human heart. We can speak with splendid words, but if there is no peace in our heart, there will be no peace in the world.
Let us practice this peace in small things, letting dialogue guide our personal and social relationships.
With zero violence and 100 percent tenderness, let us build the evangelical peace that excludes no one, but rather includes everyone, especially young people and children.
Let us pray together that the language of love and dialogue may always prevail over the language of conflict.”
