Holy Mary, Mother of God
You brought the Peace of Jesus into our world
Hold us close
Be with us in our concern for the world all in our care
Teach us to ponder the experiences in our lives
And courageously weave them into bonds of peace as we face the divisions that exist in our families, societies and world
We pray the Peace of Christ be with us in this New Year.
