Our Lady of Peace
Mary, Mother of God my mother, Queen of Peace, ask your Son Jesus to give me the gift of peace.
Pray for me for peace; peace in my heart, peace of mind and of soul, peace in my family, peace with all whom I meet, the peace of Jesus.
Jesus, my Lord and Saviour, my Brother, King of Peace, I come to you with Mary, Queen of Peace, to ask you humbly for a new otupouring of the gift of peace. Pour out on me your Holy Spirit of peace.
Give me peace, Jesus, peace within myself, peace in my family, peace in my everyday life. Give peace to my nation, and to all nations, peace among all peoples, peace in the world.
Jesus, my mediator with the Father, take me to the Father to pray for peace. Father of Jesus, our Father, my Father, I come to you with your Son Jesus. In Him and through Him I pray for peace.
Our Lady of Peace, Patron Saint of El Salvador. In the parish church of St Michael, in the city of San Salvador, there is an ancient statue of the Virgin Mary holding an olive branch which, according to some accounts, was brought there from a shipwreck. In September 1787 the inhabitants of the city attributed to the statue their safety when threatened by a volcanic eruption. The Virgin was also held up as a model of peace among warring factions in the country at the time of the war of independence. The statue was solemnly crowned in November 1921, in the presence of the country's president.
