Prayer Request

All Lay Dominicans have been requested to pray this prayer for peace.  I don't see why everyone isn't praying it.  What do you think?

 The sanctuary of Fatima, where the jubilee of the centenary of the apparitions of the Virgin has already begun, proposes a beautiful prayer for peace. In Fatima the Blessed Virgin incessantly invited us to pray for peace. Here is the text proposed:

O God, All-Holy Father,
who gave us Your peace through Jesus
and through Him you wished to lead us to Your Heart
--in this place where the Virgin Mary invites us to pray for peace in the world 

and where the Angel of Peace exhorts us to adore God alone –,
grant us, we pray, that peace may reign among all peoples;
that the leaders of the nations find ways towards justice,
that we may all reach the peace of heart
and that, through the intercession of the Queen of Peace,
we may become builders of a more fraternal world.
Through Christ, Our Lord.
Amen.
Would it be possible for us to pray this prayer together, every day?
