St. Mary's Cathedral Parish Youth Apostolate Prays for World Peace

DS / st
SANDAKAN : On Monday, 21st July, some 36 youths of St Mary's Cathedral Parish Youth Apostolate gathered at the Sandakan Diocesan Youth Office at 8 pm to pray the Taize Prayer for peace to prevail in the world.. 

The young people offered up prayers for the victims and families of  those on board  MH370 and MH17. The tragedies have left many in great pain, deep suffering and mourning.

They also prayed for peace to prevail especially in the Gaza Conflict. Many innocent lives were lost through the battle. Their thoughts and prayers too were with the minorities being suppressed in many parts of the world.

"Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive" - Matthew 21:22. Looking at the presence of  the young people, deep in prayers, showed that they too are concerned of the tragedies of our MH370 and MH17 and the conflicts happening around the world. They want a harmonious and peaceful world for everyone.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

 - Peace Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi
