Description

“It is certainly a very good thing that the local Churches in the larger unity of the Catholic communion invite others to pray for peace; our Christian brothers, in the first place; but also, when possible and desirable, brothers and sisters from other religions. When this is done with due respect for the faith convictions of each one, with due openness to the truth, and with reverence for the ways of prayer of all concerned, including the host, then an important witness is given to the deep commitment of all religious men and women to the building of peace.” (Pope John Paul II, First World Day of Prayer for Peace, Assisi, Italy, October 27, 1986).

Representatives of the major faith traditions from Los Angeles joined in prayer for peaceful convivencia in our city, our nation, and our world.

Fr. Robert B. Lawton SJ, President of Loyola Marymount University, will participate in this prayer service.
