When the seventy-two disciples returned from their mission, Jesus said to them, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. For I tell you that many prophets and kings longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it”. (Luke 10:23-24)
We are also blessed when we hear the Word of God, see it in the actions of others and place it at the heart of our daily work.
Lord Jesus, teach me to trust your power so that I remain close to your ways.
Prayer: Peace (Pope St John Paul II)
Mary, Queen of Peace,
save us all,
who have so much trust in you,
from wars, hatred and oppression.
Make us all learn to live in peace,
do what is demanded by justice
and respect the rights of every person,
so that peace may be firmly established. Amen.
