URI Staff reciting the Nuclear Prayer

Sep 29, 2017. 

Multiregion CC "Voices for a World Free of Nuclear Weapons" recently drafted The Nuclear Prayer. Members of the URI Global Face-to-face gathering in Bosnia recite it together here in Medjugorje, a pilgrimage site for Catholics.  

The Beginning and the End are in your hands, O Creator of the Universe. And in our hands you have placed the fate of this planet. We, who are tested by having both creative and destructive power in our free will, turn to you in sober fear and in intoxicating hope. We ask for your guidance and to share in your imagination in our deliberations about the use of nuclear force. Help us to lift the fog of atomic darkness that hovers so pervasively over our Earth, Your Earth, so that soon all eyes may see life magnified by your pure light. 

Bless all of us who wait today for your Presence and who dedicate ourselves to achieve your intended peace and rightful equilibrium on Earth. In the Name of all that is holy and all that is hoped. Amen.
