Pope Francis has invited faithful to participate in the “Minute for Peace” on Thursday, June 8, 2017, at 1 p.m., in memory of the meeting of the Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the Vatican Gardens with the Pope and with Patriarch Bartholomew I, to pray together for peace on June 8, 2014.
“At 1 p.m., tomorrow,” the Pope said in Italian during his General Audience of this Wednesday, June 7, 2017, in Saint Peter’s Square, “the initiative ‘One Minute for Peace’ is being taken up again in different countries. A moment of prayer on the anniversary of the meeting in the Vatican between me, the late Israeli President Peres, and Palestinian President Abbas,” the Pope recalled.
“There is so much need, in our time, for praying – Christians, Jews and Muslims – for peace,” the Pope insisted.
