Praying for South Sudan and DRC

 

On July 25thUISG-USG Commission for Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) and Pax Christi International held a special online prayer for the people and the environment of two countries - South Sudan and Democratic Republic of Congo.

 

Sr. Teresia Wamuyu Wachira, a co-president of Pax Christi, said the prayer gathering had been called for the love of the people of South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the continent, and for the interest of creating cultures of peace in the world using active nonviolence.

 

“The two countries we have gathered for and pray with have for decades experienced and continue to experience violent conflicts. We are also reminded and brought face-to-face with the reality that there are children who have been born in war, and therefore have never experienced peace, justice, and joy. It is for these children that we gather today,” said sr. Wachira in a message.
