Prayers for peace were offered by the hierarchs, clergy, and faithful of the Jerusalem Patriarchate yesterday, following upon the call of His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos and other religious leaders to dedicate the day to prayer and fasting in light of the violence in the Holy Land.

“There is yet time to stop the hatred,” the Patriarch and the others said in their statement on October 13.

In particular, prayers were offered at Golgotha, the site where the Lord was crucified, inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, “for the cessation of all hostilities in Israel and Gaza and for the prevailing spirit of dialogue and peace and the relief of all those wounded by war and in favour of respecting every human soul as the image of God.”
