Dona Nobis Pacem


Odd that we make this prayer on the anniversary of D-Day -- or maybe not so odd. We should never forget that something as valuable as peace can sometimes only be achieved at great cost.

Because our prayer is for peace: Real peace. Freedom. Security. Safety. For one and all.

nice post, did you know that over 57,000 allies died on this day, 1944, hoping for peace in their lifetime.

Peace at all levels inside and outside. In Tazie services I would lovingly tearfully sing the Dona nobis pacem, domine, alleluia. It gave me peace and it all starts from the inside out. Thanks for the lovely reminder. Grace and peace.

"Fighting for Peace" an oxymoron we still haven't figured out how to avoid. (sigh)

We'll continue to pray for peace indeed...

Nice post.

A good message for us all to digest.

That is an excellent way to put it as Peace, like Freedom, is not free.

Peace be with you and with your family for now and for always.
