Interfaith Prayers

Today (January 27) is the UN-designated International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Here is a news report about the day's events and importance:

And here is the American Jewish Committee's statement:;_ylt=A0oG7lmwu.ZS7nYA7WJXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTBybGhkdDRqBHNlYwNzYwRjb2xvA2FjMgR2dGlkA1VJQzFfMQ--

It's a day to bring back to mind those who perished in Nazi atrocities---primarily Jews but also mentally ill, Roma and Sinti, and homosexuals---to remember the continuing problems of racism, prejudice, intolerance, and violence, and to seek the Lord's guidance in bringing about peace and justice in our time and for the future.
