“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!” Psalm 122:6

I wasn’t intending to begin my 2009 posting with a ‘downer’, but I can’t help it.   Pray for those people stuck in the middle of this crisis.   Pray for the leaders who started this.   Pray for those world leaders who aren’t condemning it.

“What you see on television cannot be compared to what is happening. The word love is choking in my throat. … We are living like animals in Gaza. We cry and nobody hears us. I am asking God for mercy and pray that the light of Christianity continues to shine in Gaza.”  Msgr. Manuel Musallam, pastor of Holy Family Parish in Gaza City

I’m going to refrain for voicing my opinion on the current situation over there.  The most important thing we can do right now is pray.
