As promised, we completed the crafting of a Prayer Service for Peace in Syria and very shortly it will be up on WLP's web site. J.S. Paluch bulletin parishes will also be able to find it on the Subscriber Resource Center on the J.S. Paluch web site.
Please check your diocesan and archdiocesan web sites for information about prayer sites and services for Saturday's day of prayer and fasting. The Archdiocese of Chicago posted a helpful site today.
As it looks more and more like the United States will be launching some kind of attack on Syria, my heart sinks more and more as well. Why does the answer always seem to be the use of weapons? I know this is a very delicate and complicated situation, but these things kill people and they usually end up killing innocent people; people just like you and me. When will this stop?
Wherever you land on the issue, please take the time to pray for victims of war and violence.
Dona nobis pacem.
