May We Live in Peace
A Prayer for the Peoples of Palestine & Israel

Two peoples, one land,
Three faiths, one root.
One earth, one mother.
One sky, one beginning.
One future, one destiny.
One broken heart, One God.

Holy Mary, Mother of Divine Wisdom.
Hear our prayer and lead us to a vision of unity.
May we see the many in the One,
And the One in the many.

O Jesus, may You,
As Life of the world, and
As Source of all amazing differences,
With Your help and the help of Your Mother,
Lead us to see clearly,
And firmly guide us toward each other,
Toward a world of Your Peace and Your Love.
