Prayer for Peace at Pentecost

Caritas Jerusalem Statement on Gaza Violence. Caritas Jerusalem asks that Pentecost is devoted to prayer for peace due to the  horrific violence along the Israel/Gaza border, which resulted in the deaths of at least 65 Palestinians, and injuries to almost 3,000.  Caritas supports the right to non-violent protest, as a fundamental right of civilians. The situation in Gaza is unsustainable. Electricity is on for four hours a day, water in many areas of Gaza is undrinkable and medical supplies running out. Most of the 2 million people there have never been allowed to leave this tiny area, and young Gazans live in despair. The International Community must help.

Please pray for peace, justice, a lasting resolution of the conflict in the region and a just resolution for Palestinians in general and Gazans in particular.

This we ask, through Christ our Lord, Amen.
