Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli President Shimon Peres have accepted an invitation by Pope Francis to pray for peace in the Holy Land at the Vatican this Pentecost Sunday.
During his recent pilgrimage to the Holy Land, the Pope said, “All of us want peace. Many people build it day by day through small gestures and acts; many of them are suffering, yet patiently persevere in their efforts to be peacemakers.”
As this highly symbolic meeting approaches, let us all pray together in support of peace in the Holy Land and throughout the world. We also invite you to share our calls for peace on social media: #PrayForPeace
