In the Peace Prayer, we pray to sow light amid darkness. Indeed, our vocation is to become a contemporary keeper of the flame. We must fan the flame of faith that has illumined our paths since the day of our baptism. The Peace Prayer reminds us to brighten the lives of others with godly actions that manifest our familial bonds as children of the loving God who, in the words of Francis of Assisi, is reflected in Brother Sun.
