Messengers of Peace share their "Prayer for Peace"

Prayer for Peace

The Messengers of Peace follow a prayer for peace taken from the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi, the 13th-century Italian saint who dedicated himself to a life of poverty and promoter of peace in the world.

 

Lord Jesus Christ, make us an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is offense, pardon; where there is conflict, that we may build peace.

HEC-TV documentary focuses on Catholic education in archdiocese

This scene, part of the mosaics of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, depicts the integration of Catholic schools in the St. Louis Archdiocese nearly 10 years before public schools desegregated. It is the cover of the January issue of HEC-TV Magazine, promoting the upcoming  Higher Education Channel documentary on Catholic education,”Mission To Educate — A Faithful Past, A Faith-Filled Future.”
