November 23: Peace Among Family Members

Thanksgiving Break: November 23-27

           As we approach a time where relatives reunite and celebrate with each other, we ask God to foster peace and understanding between family members. May we act with patience and empathy towards our parents and our siblings and may they treat us the same. May family dinners and holidays be points of connection rather than tension. We ask for God’s guidance in navigating conflicting personalities and dissenting wills. May God help us in balancing the times when we must assert ourselves and the times when we must sacrifice for the people we love. We pray that these reunions ultimately bring us stronger, more joyful relationships among family.
