A Rosary Decade When Peace And Security Seem Far Away


Our Lady of Brezje ~ Slovenia

Our Father, Who art in heaven...

For a child is born to us, a son is given us; upon his shoulder dominion rests. They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace. His dominion is vast and forever peaceful.  Isaiah 9:5

Hail Mary, full of grace...

I lift up my eyes to the mountains
from whence shall come my help?
My help shall come from the Lord
who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121: 1,2 

Hail Mary, full of grace... 

If you have been foolish enough to fly into a passion and now have second thoughts, lay your hand to your lips. For by churning milk you produce butter. By wringing the nose you produce blood and by whipping up anger you produce strife. Proverbs 30:32,33

Hail Mary, full of grace..

And all at once with the angel there was a great throng of the hosts of heaven, praising God and saying: Glory to God in the highest heaven and on earth peace for those he favors. Luke 2:14

Hail Mary, full of grace...

Jesus said to his disciples: "If you find that the world hates you, know that it has hated me before you. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own; the reason it hates you is that you do not belong to the world. But I chose you out of the world." John 15:18,19 

Hail Mary, full of grace...

In the evening of that same day, the first day of the week, the doors were closed in the room where the disciples were. Jesus came and stood among them. He said to them, "Peace be with you," and after saying this he showed them his hands and his side. John 20:19-21 

Hail Mary, full of grace... 


As much as is possible, and to the utmost of your ability be at peace with everyone. Never try to get revenge; leave that, my dear friends, to the Retribution. Romans 12:18,19

Hail Mary, full of grace...

Christ's peace must reign in your hearts, since as members of the one body you have been called to that peace. Dedicate yourselves to thankfulness. Let the word of Christ, rich as it is, dwell in you. Colossians 3:15,16 

Hail Mary, full of grace...

Finally, grow strong in the Lord, with the strength of his power. Put on the full armor of God so as to be able to resist the devils tactics For it is not against human enemies that we have to struggle, but against the principalities and the ruling forces who are masters of the darkness of this world, the spirit of evil in the heavens. Ephesians 6:10-12 

Hail Mary, full of grace... 


Wherever there are jealousy and ambition there are also disharmony and wickedness of every kind, whereas the wisdom that comes down from above is essentially something pure; it is also peaceable, kindly and considerate, it is full of mercy and shows itself by doing good. The peace sown by peacemakers brings a harvest of justice. James 3:17

Glory be to the Father...

  1. A wonderful mediation for peace in our world. Let us all pray for hearts to be softened and opened up to the notion of acceptance and forgiveness. Peace has to come from both sides.

  2. This is much needed in light of the gruesome killings recently. We live in barbaric times.
