Is Peace Possible?

Tomas takes a long loving look at how we have fallen into vioence and what we can do to respond effectively. Contemplatives are called to intercede on behalf of the world, to suffer with compassion the pain of the world.

Closing Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila

Your will Lord be done in me in every way and manner that You, my Lord, may want.,

If You want it to be done with trials strengthen me and let them come.

If with persecutions, illnesses, dishonours and lack of necessities: here I am.

I will not turn away, my Father, nor is it right that I turn my back on you.

Since Your Son gave You this will of mine in the name of all, there’s no reason for any lack on my part.

But grant me the favour of Your Kingdom that I ay do Your will, since He asked for this kingdom for me.

And use me as You would your own possession, in conformity with Your will.


Way of Perfection 32:10
