Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there is no peace; and when one builds up a wall, behold, they plaster it with whitewash:
Ezekiel 13: 10
Pope Francis is requesting a minute of prayer for peace:
Pope Francis has appealed for prayers and international participation in the “One Minute for Peace” initiative to be held Thursday, 8 June, at 1:00 PM Rome time.
He said the initiative represents “a short moment of prayer on the recurrence of the meeting in the Vatican between me, the late Israeli President Peres, and the Palestinian President Abbas”.
Their encounter took place in the Vatican Gardens on 8 June 2014, during which the three men prayed together for peace.
Go here to read the rest. By all means pray, but also keep your powder dry. In this vale of tears we must always pray for peace and ever be ready for war. Not to pray for peace makes us savages, not to prepare for war if our prayers are not granted makes us fools.
