"Our commitment to reconciliation demands that we promote
justice and peace."
Constitutions of the
Sisters of the Good Shepherd

Prayer for Peace
are the Peacemakers,
for they shall be known as the Children of God.
But I say to you that hear, love your enemies,
do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you,
pray for those who abuse you.
To those who strike
you on the cheek, offer the other also,
and from those who take away your cloak,
do not withhold your coat as well.
Give to everyone who begs from you,
and of those who take away your goods, do not ask them again.
And as you wish
that others would do to you, do so to them.
