International Co-Promoters for Justice
and Peace Call for Participation in September 21st Day of Peace
September 21, the UN International Day of Peace is fast approaching
again. Last year, we still remember the various initiatives
held in the different parts of the world in a common effort
to "Wrap the World in Prayer for Peace".
They were many responses to the letter of Fr. Carlos Azpiroz
Costa, the Master of the Order (OP) calling to pray and show
our commitment for peace in the world especially in the Middle
East and particularly in Iraq.
A year later we are still
called and challenged to
pray and act for peace. We invite you again this year to be united
in prayer for peace in Iraq. Please find a mini-Poster and a prayer
for peace in Iraq, we have prepared to remind us of this day. Feel
free to use it to promote the International Day of Peace.
We have planned an action around the clock for 24 hours.
We do hope you will join and post whatever action you are planning
to do either within or outside your community. In this way we can
see visibly our solidarity as Dominicans and peace promoters during
the day all over the world.
May St. Dominic and Catherine guide us on our way to
