Nonviolence - a way of life

Ever-loving and abiding God,
may our shared praise rise to you
as we remember your presence
in the lives of our sisters and brothers.

Awaken in us
an ever-increasing awareness
of the wonder of the gift of LIFE.

Teach s the value of each person;
keep us ever mindful
that the life blood of every person is precious,
and that we share responsibility
for the life of each person.
