Divine Source of All Peace,
How stormy our lives become from time to time. From the losses and trauma, to the questions that plague our minds.
These tempests rage, causing us to lose our footing. We fall, hoping to rise with hope when the storm passes.
As the storms of chaos surround us, may your breezes of calm relax our anxious hearts.
