A Catholic website for the modern reader
“If you want peace, work for justice”
In a society drunk with violence and war, this website should prove sobering. It lists the staggering costs of war in real time. It also examines the cost in the light of the human and social needs that are sacrificed in pursuit of political ambition.

A Daily Prayer for Justice and Mercy
Jesus, united with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
give us your compassion for those in prison.
Mend in mercy the broken in mind and memory.
Soften the hard of heart, the captives of anger.
Free the innocent; parole the trustworthy.
Awaken the repentance that restores hope.
May prisoners’ families persevere in their love.
Jesus, heal the victims of crime. They live with their scars.
Lift to eternal peace those who die.
Grant victims’ families the forgiveness that heals.
Give wisdom to lawmakers and to those who judge.
Instill prudence and patience in those who guard.
Make those in prison ministry bearers of your light,
for all of us in need of your mercy!

I forgave you
your entire debt
because you begged me to.
Should you not have pity
on your fellow servant,
as I have had pity on you?
