People of faith respond to threats of attack on Syria


As President Obama brings his case for a military strike on Syria to the U.S. Congress and the U.S. public for their approval, people of faith speak out with a strong voice to oppose the use of violence. On Saturday, September 7, Pope Francis led a prayer vigil for peace in Syria and the Middle East; it is estimated that 100,000 people attended at St. Peter's Square. (Source: Catholic News Service)
On September 9, several folks visited the offices of every member of the U.S. Congress and hand-delivered a letter from Marie Dennis, co-president of Pax Christi International.
