A Chalice of Peace
Today I light our chalice for those who are embroiled in conflict, for they may not be able to burn with the serenity of compassion.
Today I light our chalice for the downtrodden and the hopeless, for they may not be able to light their own flames of joy.
Today I light our chalice for those who stand in defiance of tyranny, for they may not be able to light their own beacons of harmony.
Today I light our chalice for the innocent and the hungry, for they may not be able to light their own fires of warmth.
Today I light our chalice in Peace.
