Lynn L’Heureux writes… “Join the multitudes on prayer on Friday March 13, for peace and especially for the captives of Vincentian families in Syria.
My parish in Calgary, Canada will have a 24 hour prayer vigil and exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. Pray together on this day. Pray the Rosary and ask our Mother Mary and all the saints to intercede. We need to pray together with others, including Pope Francis on this day and always for peace.”
Perhaps this is something other parishes and Vincentian Family groups could sponsor locally.
Editors note: The news continues to remain murky. There was an encouraging report March 9 which was later modified.
Please keep in mind that statement on the international website of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul
