Delhi – The Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, who are meeting at their Motherhouse, Mount St. Joseph, Delhi Township, to discuss and decide the direction of the congregation for the next four years and beyond, voice their opposition to the war
Because of our personal commitment to nonviolence and the sacredness of all life, we, the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, wish to express our opposition to the war in Iraq as a means of resolving conflict. We respectfully urge our government leaders to use their power and influence to stop this violence and save human life.

We pray for the safety of those fighting the war and ask for their quick return to their homelands. We also pray for the safety of the Iraqi people and others whose lives are in the path of war. Finally, we pray that our government leaders stop the war and seek nonviolent means to resolve international conflicts. We invite all people to join us in praying for peace in our world.
