LE "oui"à la paix et à la justice

o Seigneur,Pere de misércorde,toi dont le nom est amour,tio qui nous as donné la raison et la liberté pour que nous soyons capable d'aimer,fais nous comprendre que le véritable "oui"à la guerre c'est agissant à la paix et à la justice.
O Dieu,donne nous ton esprit de force afin que nous nous mobilisons contre la misere au lieu de nous battre contre nos freres.et que nous nous dressions contre l'ignoble exploitation des faible par les forts au lieu de nous faire la guerre.
Seigneur,nous le savons,cela coute cher en yemps,en intelligence et en argent,de sauverde la misere,la sans logis et les sans
pain,les sans écoles,les sans soins et les sans emploi
mais combien coutents les guere,
enseigne nous Seigneur à dépenser l'argent ,l'ingéniosité,la passion non plus pour nous entre tuer hommes et femmes,enfants et vieillards mai pourqu'enfin,sur le visage de tous les homme resplendisse ton visage.Amen.

The “yes” to peace and justice

Oh Lord, father of mercy, you whose name is love, you who gives us reason and freedom so that we are capable of love, we understand that the true “yes” to war is with peace and justice.

Oh God, give us the spirit of strength so that we can mobilize against the misery in place of fighting with our brothers and so that we can stand up against the exploitation of the weak against the strong instead of waging war against each other.

Lord we know that it is expensive in time, intelligence and in money to save the homeless, the hungry ones, the ones without schools, the ones without health care, and the jobless ones, but how much do wars count?

Lord, teach us how to spend money; teach us ingenuity and passion so that we stop killing each other; men, women, children and the elderly so that in every man your face may shine. Amen
