September 21 is International Day of Peace!
The theme for 2017 is
“Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All.”
From the UN website: "The theme honours the spirit of TOGETHER, a global initiative that promotes respect, safety and dignity for everyone forced to flee their homes in search of a better life. TOGETHER unites the organizations of the United Nations System, the 193 Member States of the United Nations, the private sector, civil society, academic institutions and individual citizens in a global partnership in support of diversity, non-discrimination and acceptance of refugees and migrants. It was initiated during the United Nations Summit for Refugees and Migrants on 19 September 2016." Click here to know more about TOGETHER...
On September 21, at 12 noon (in each of our time zones),
let us practice ESPACIO (a time of silence) for PEACE.
Let us pray together for all those in our world who are suffering
from climate disasters, conflict, hunger, and violence.
