This is the time of year we prepare for the coming of the Son of God, the Prince of Peace. Yet peace in our world seems tragically elusive and far away. However, at St Edward’s School, we try to live our lives by values that transcend the violence of the world around us. If we choose to give up the tendency to find fault; to blame others and to hate then we will transform the world around us….and create peace.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
Where there is hatred let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
St Francis of Assisi
