Mother Teresa left this beautiful prayer for us to ask for peace to reign at the heart of our families.
O God, Father of all people,
you call us all
to carry love where the poor are downtrodden,
joy where the Church is discouraged,
reconciliation where people are separated —
father from son,
mother from daughter,
husband from wife,
those who believe from those who don’t believe,
the Christian from his unloved Christian brother.
You prepare our way
so that the wounded Body of Christ,
may become the leaven
for the community of the poor on earth and
for the entire family of mankind.
Since you are here…
