He shall be Peace.

Good and loving God, we praise, bless, and thank you for your Gift of Peace. Enable us to bring peace to those devastated by sexual abuse from your ministers. Enable us to bestow peace on all priests of integrity. Enable us to bring true peace within your Church through structural change.
