First Friday Fast – Peace Around the World

The DSP Peace and Nonviolence Committee invites you to fast the First Friday of each month for peace around the world. Please join us this Friday, April 7. As we prepare to enter into the sacred mysteries of Holy Week, let us pause and reflect on our Lenten journey up to this point. If we have not been as faithful in prayer, fasting, and almsgiving as when we began this journey, let us make a renewed effort to truly walk in Jesus’ footsteps this coming week.

Let us look carefully at the issues that are put before us and see how we can respond, eg, the issue of our immigrants. All they want is a better life for themselves and their families. How can we justify separating children from their parents if the parents are not criminals? Pray, call, or write your elected officials about this injustice.

“One cannot level one’s moral lance at every evil in the universe. There are just too many of them. But you can do something, and the difference between doing something and doing nothing is everything.” ~ Daniel Berrigan
