Pope Francis rallies 100,000 for antiwar peace vigil

Last week: 100,000 answer Pope’s call, fill St. Peter’s Square for Syria peace vigil.

Question: Was it a “peace vigil”? Pope Francis said: “Violence and war are never the way…” That sounds like an antiwar rally to me. “May the noise of weapons cease!…War never again! Never again war!” That’s a protest in my book. Here is the full speech.

Quick flashback to ten years ago: Iraq War Ten Years On. Will “our” representatives be stopped this time around or will we find ourselves hurtling headlong into another “military conflict,” despite worldwide protest? Yes, pray. Pray for peace. Then oppose the war loudly in whatever way you can.
