Our Brothers in South Sudan Ask Us to Pray for Peace

Our brothers of South Sudan ask for a special prayer for peace. They themselves attest “the war is continuous and there is never a day in which we do not hear the noise of weapons in the night and even during the day.” The situation remains critical, which means even more deaths, migration, desolation and hunger across the country.” Peace here is so fragile and in conflict situations such as these it life is a constant daily survival, hoping in an uncertain future and spending the day amidst fears and insecurities. Brothers of our beloved Order let us join our voices to those of our brothers and sisters living in this extremely complex and desperate situation in South Sudan and in so many places of conflict in the world where our brothers and so many witnesses of the faith continue giving their lives to make Christ present.
