The Nobel Peace Prize committee may want to nominate Pope Francis.
As he stirs up the world daily, his call for a worldwide day of prayer and fasting for Syria last Saturday, got little attention in the Detroit area.
Leaders could have called us to the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament to enhance the enthusiastic pope's plea for peace and nonviolence in resolving the civil strive in Syria.
Violence only begets more of the same.
We all know this truth.
Prayer is powerful, for sure.
A decidedly different direction is moving this war drama now.
Prayers are also in order for a fruitful Focus Hope walk Sunday, Oct. 13th at 1 pm on the campus there at 1355 Oakman Boulevard, near Madonna Church where the late Father William Cunningham served as pastor, while Focus:HOPE co-founder, Eleanor Josaitis, worshipped with her husband Don, and family.
Call 313 494 4270 for more information, and, register online at www.focushope.edu/walk.
Prayers are asked by Dana Milbrand Friday for a special intention.
Join her, and me, in prayer.
