es - Dios Omnipotente

Prieres - 9 de junio de 2017

Dios Omnipotente,
que estás presente en todo el Universo y en la más pequeña de tus criaturas,
Tú, que rodeas con tu ternura todo lo que existe, derrama en nosotros la fuerza de tu amor para que cuidemos la vida y la belleza,
Inúndanos de paz, para que vivamos como hermanos y hermanas sin dañar a nadie.
Dios de los pobres,
ayúdamos a rescatar a los abandonados y olvidados de esta tierra que tanto valen a tus ojos.
Sana nuestras vidas, para que seamos protectores del mundo y no (...)

Prieres - 3 mai 2017

Père, tu nous appelles à bâtir ton Eglise,
Corps du Christ et Temple de l’Esprit,
aujourd’hui et pour demain,
dans l’élan des bâtisseurs d’hier.
Nous te rendons grâce pourleur travail,
dont nous sommes héritiers.
Apprends-nous à habiter pleinement
le temps que tu nous donnes.
Apprends-nous à imaginer l’œuvre
sans perdre de vue que tu en es l’artiste,
à concevoir le plan
sans oublier que tu en es l’architecte,
à agencer les pierres
sans empêcher que tu en sois le maçon.
Apprends-nous à unir la (...)

en - Palm Sunday and Gospel Nonviolence

Prieres - 8 April 2017

In the Gospel reading for the procession of palms, Jesus’ journey finally reaches its destination – Jerusalem. Rome’s representative, Pontius Pilate, has also arrived. Pilate rides into Jerusalem on a war horse past crowds shouting praise – an entrance befitting a conquering ruler.
But Jesus rides on a donkey. The scribes who wrote the Gospel of Matthew emphasize that Jesus is the fulfillment of Old Testament messianic prophecies. They include Zechariah 9: 9.
Shout for joy, O daughter (...)

Prieres - 1 April 2017

Prayer
Lord Jesus, you said, "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Keep us from being preoccupied with worldly goods at the expense of justice.
"Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth." Help us not to be ruthless with one another, and to eliminate violence around us.
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Let us not be impatient under our own burdens and unconcerned about the burdens of others.
"Blessed are those (...)

Prieres - 25 mars 2017

Prayer
Lord of Peace, we come to You in our need.
Create in us an awareness of the massive forces of violence and terrorism that threaten our world today.
Grant us a sense of urgency to activate the forces of goodness, of justice, of love and of peace in our communities.
Where there’s armed conflict, let us stretch out our arms to our brothers and sisters.
Where there’s abundance and luxury, let there be simple lifestyle and sharing.

Prieres - 18 March 2017

Prayer
All-nourishing God, your children cry for help against the violence of or world: Where children starve for bread and feed on weapons; starve for vision and feed on drugs; starve for love and feed on videos; starve for peace and die murdered in our streets.
Creator God, timeless preserver of resources, forgive us for the gifts that we have wasted.
Renew for us what seems beyond redemption; call order and beauty to emerge again from chaos.
Convert our destructive power into (...)

God of Nonviolence, Thank you for the gift of your love and your peace.
Give me the grace to live the life of Gospel nonviolence that I might be a faithful follower of the nonviolent Jesus.
Send the Holy Spirit of nonviolence upon me that I will love everyone, from my neighbor to my enemies, that I may see you in everyone, and know everyone as my sister and brother, and never hurt or fear anyone again.
Make me an instrument of your peace, that I might give my life in the (...)

Prayer
We travel in deserts and despair as we focus on how Christ was crucified.
And is crucified in the world today.
We agree to make this journey, this pilgrimage, and to leave life as usual, business as usual, to pay attention, to be present to pain and suffering.
The journey to the Light of Easter can only go this way.
We choose to learn this hard truth, to accept the ashes, to witness the darkness, to walk the way of the cross as it happens in our world.
Let us (...)

es - Cambiamos derechos por mercado

Prieres - 11 de febrero de 2017

No son pastores, sino lobos neoliberales con piel democrática los que llevan hoy los cayados del poder. Pero Dios va a litigar contra estos “sujetos sucedáneos” y les pedirá cuenta del atropello que han perpetrado con sus pueblos empobrecidos…
A veces la tristeza embarga nuestra alma de una amarga nostalgia…. Cambiamos derechos por mercado, rentables nos volvimos… no hubo decisión por nuestra parte, nunca la pidieron… y nunca la exigimos. ¿Qué hicieron los gobiernos? A veces la tristeza embarga (...)
