WUCWO Prayer for Dialogue

We are all members of His holy body, the hands, the feet, the voice and face of Jesus. As we dialogue with our sisters and brothers in Christ, let us be open to them, sharing their joys and sorrows. Guide us as we learn from the wisdom of each other. Help us to accept others and their differences. Pope Francis tells us that dialogue is necessary for peace in the world. As women of hope and sowers of peace, in Jesus’ name, we pray for that dialogue.
