Praying for Peace at Fort Riley, Kan.

February 25, 2009 by

Response to social justice requires not only direct service but advocacy/action for change. On March 19, 2008, St. Joseph’s Day and the 5th Anniversary of the Iraq War moved us to pray for peace. At Freedom Park, we prayed for an end to the war, for the safe return of our loved ones in Iraq and Afghanistan; we prayed for their families and children as they try to cope with the rigors of one parent home; we prayed for the Iraqi soldiers, their families and children; we prayed for the environment. And, lastly, we prayed for us as a nation asking God to help us regain a sense of the common good, where the most vulnerable among us is attended to.
