The deep wounds of racism have been exposed and our world cries out for honest dialogue and visionary leadership. In the words of St. John Paul we pray that God will provide what we need to build something new.
Holy Spirit and Seat of Wisdom, help us in the great endeavour that we are carrying out to meet our brothers and sisters on a more and more mature way.
Through all the means of knowledge, of mutual respect, of love, May we be able to rediscover the divine plan. Teach us constantly the ways that lead to unity. Help us all to proclaim Christ and reveal the power of God And the wisdom of God hidden in His Cross.
How greatly I desire to entrust to You
all the difficult problems of the societies, systems, and states—
problems that cannot be solved with hatred, war, and self-destruction,
but only by peace, justice, and respect for the rights of people and nations.
