A Pope Francis prayer on his

recent visit to Iraq

 

If God is the God of life – for so he is –

then it is wrong for us

to kill our brothers and sisters in his name.

 

If God is the God of peace – for so he is –

then it is wrong for us

to wage war in his name.

 

If God is the God of Love – for so he is –

then it is wrong for us

to hate our brothers and sisters.
