That ‘Spirit of Assisi’ is looming once more…
“No One is Saved Alone”: Francis to participate in Interreligious Prayer for Peace and Fraternity in Rome October 20
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time again — time for yet another interreligious prayer circus for peace.
The Community of Sant’Egidio will once again be hosting an international encounter of representatives of various religions with the alleged aim of obtaining peace and fraternity from… well, from some kind of deity or another.
Scheduled for this coming Tuesday, Oct. 20, from 4:30 pm until 7:00 pm CET under the motto “No One Is Saved Alone – Peace and Fraternity”, the event will consist of each “religious tradition” (as they like to put it) petitioning its deity for peace and brotherhood in separate locations, followed by a public “encounter” of the different representatives, speeches by each group, proclamation of an appeal for peace, the obligatory lighting of some candles, and a COVID-friendly “sign of peace”.
