Thank the US Bishops
RIVER FOREST, IL - The Iraq Coordinating Committee
is asking congregational and province Justice Promoters to
invite their members to participate in an Advent Prayer
Chain for Peace in Iraq. Also, members are encouraged to send a
Christmas letter of thanks to their local bishop for the
statement made by the US Bishops on the situation
Sponsored by Pax Chriisti, the Advent program
is a 24 hour prayer chain. You can participate by selecting a time
to join the prayer. It is that easy. Communities are encouraged
to pray together.
This is how it works:
Starting the week after Thanksgiving, there will be a calendar
on the Pax Christi USA web site where they will list the individuals
and groups which are praying for peace in Iraq on the days and at
the time that they have committed to undertake their prayer and
witness. Time slots will be divided into hour increments; groups
wishing to do multiple time slots are welcome to do so. Please check
the calendar and, if possible, consider signing up for a slot that
is still open.
up on Pax Christi's website for a prayer time.
Thank your bishop for the Statement on Iraq, calling for dialogue
on a responsible withdrawal of troops.

of the recent campaign and the shrill and shallow debate that distorts
reality and reduces the options to “cut and run” versus
“stay the course.”
