Pray for Peace and Reconciliation

In light of the tragic events of January 6 in our nation’s Capitol, The Wheaton Franciscans invite you to join us in prayer for a peaceful transition of power and for healing and reconciliation for all people in our nation. Our Franciscan tradition calls us to reflect on a God of nonviolent and compassionate love. Let us work to cultivate peace in our hearts that we might be a “Presence of peace and reconciliation” in our communities and our nation.

Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.” (John 14:27) May the Christ also give us light to guide our way, strength for the hard work ahead, and hope that there is brighter tomorrow awaiting us.
