Advent Peace

 O God, it is your will to hold both heaven and earth in a single peace. Let the design of your great love shine on the waste of our hatred and violence. 
Give peace to your church, peace to the nations, 
peace in our homes, and peace in our hearts. 

The Advent season encompasses the four Sundays before Christmas Day. Each Sunday in Advent, a candle is lit – often in our homes as well as at church – and over the centuries, different frameworks have specified a concept represented by each candle each Sunday. This year at Gloria Dei our candles are signifying Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. 
The second candle is Peace.
