Votive Mass for Peace and Justice
Scripture Readings: Gal 5:18-25; Lk 11:42-46
When Anglican Archbishop, Desmond Tutu, received the Nobel Peace Prize, he said, “If you want peace, don’t talk to your friends, talk to your enemies.” Mother Teresa of Calcutta who also received the Nobel Peace Prize said, “Peace begins with a smile.” But in her acceptance speech she warned the world that, “The greatest destroyer of peace today is the cry of the innocent unborn child. … by abortion.”
In 2018 President Trump greeted North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, and they talked face to face trying to work for peace by disarmament.
But today surgical abortion not atomic bombs is the world’s greatest weapon of mass destruction, killing one and a half billion children in the last forty years.1 Our president supports the right to life at every turn. Let us support him by daily prayers and sacrifices for peace and justice.
