“We know that the Lord will answer our prayers and will give us peace…. We believe and hope that peace will come. We don’t know when, but it will come according to the agenda and time of the Lord.”
Bishop William Shomali, Auxiliary Bishop of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, in an interview with OSV (Our Sunday visitor) Weekly, February 4, 2015
“The greater the violence, the greater hunger for a word of peace. Not just a word, a witness. A total life commitment to peace and justice. A witness in word and deed.
The message was spoken from the Mount of Olives …. ‘You will be my witness from Jerusalem to the ends of the earth.’ I can think of no higher calling than to be a witness for peace.”
