MIA Prayer Intention for the Coming Week - Peace in the Holy Land

The eruption and escalation of violence in the Gaza Strip and across Israel as a result of the recent abduction and murder of three Israeli teenagers— Naftali Fraenkel (16) Gilad Shaer (16) and Eyal Yifrah (19)— and the abduction and murder of 16 year old Palestinian Mohammed Abu Khdeir, just days after the Invocation for Peace ( Pope Francis praying with the Presidents of Israel and Palestine), has resulted in at least 175 deaths - men, women and children, ranging in age from elderly to infants.

Let us pray for restraint and for the re-opening of dialogue, that there may be an end to violence in Holy Land.

Messages to: Mary Reynolds rsm - Executive Director MIA
