Today, we pray for peaceful and kind communication between family, friends, colleagues, community, and leadership.
A famous saint of our times said that peace begins with a smile. Mother Teresa can teach us a lot when it comes to peaceful and kind dialogue between all members in our community. In all her words and actions, she allowed God to be there for her and to guide her thoughts. If you seek peace and kindness, open your heart to God. Let God be your guide in all that you do, and be sure to communicate with Him through prayer and divine acts of charity toward yourself and your neighbors.
