"The glory of God is man fully alive, and the life of man is the vision of God." -St Irenaeus of Lyon

A Prayer for Peace

We thank you, O Master, Lover of Mankind, King of the ages and Bestower of good things, Who destroyed the dividing wall of enmity, and granted peace to the human race, and Who now has granted peace to Your servants. Instill in them the fear of You and confirm in them love one for the other. Extinguish every dispute and banish all temptation to disagreement. For You are our peace and to You we ascribe glory: to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.

– Prayer for the Pacification of Animosity from the Great Book of Needs
