  1. I was happy to read the reports tonight of the great gathering in Rome, and thank you for posting Pope Francis’s proclamation here. The appetite for war seems insatiable – and to see so many who protested against war in the past now seeking it? Terrible.

  2. I’m happy, too, Linda, that a lot of people responded to Pope Francis’ call for prayer and fasting for peace in Syria, the Middle East, and throughout the world. Seeing the images of the suffering of the victims of war, my heart goes out to them. When will see the end of this terrible scourge of war that we have brought upon ourselves?

    Heeded Pope Francis’ call not only to pray for peace in Syria and the Middle East. Much closer to home, our government has been waging war on two fronts in our country for 4 decades now – against a communist rebellion and a Muslim separatist movement – which has cost lives in the hundreds of thousands. We who live in the urban areas don’t feel much the effects; but those living in the countryside, where most of the conflicts are, really suffer. It’s sad, too, that most of the casualties are civilians! Really praying for peace…
