Thank you for your continued generosity and support! As the need increases in these uncertain economic times, so does the gratitude:
"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does."

OLL Parishioners have taken on the praying the following prayers daily for peace:

Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for is is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born
to eternal life.

Muslim, Jewish, Christian Prayer for Peace
By Joan Chittister, OSB
From Pax Christi USA/Fellowship of Reconciliation

O God, you are the source
of life and peace.
Praised by your name forever.
We know it is you who turn
our minds to thoughts of peace.
Hear our prayer in this time of war.

Your power changes hearts.
Muslims, Christian, and Jews remember,
and profoundly affirm,
that they are followers of the one God,
children of Abraham, brothers and sisters;
enemies begin to speak to one another;
those who were estranged
join hands in friendship;
nations seek the way of peace together.

Strengthen our resolve to give witnesss
to these truths by the way we live.

Give to us:
Understanding that puts an end to strife;
Mercy that quenches hatred; and
Forgiveness that overcomes vengeance.

Empower all people to live in your law of love.
