Oh for peace!

I'm on my countdown for returning to Rome and to work. My case was packed, weighed and ready for the journey when I went to bed last night. Today I've had to re-pack and am about to have another go at the luggage, all because of the news that I first heard in the early hours of this morning, that some people have been planning a horrendous mass murder.

I pray for a world where there is no more hatred, violence, bloodshed or unnecessary deaths.

Tomorrow is the feast of St. Clare of Assisi, a patroness of peace.
"Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love."

God bless,
Sr. Janet
