Cir. 24.58: Prayer Appeal for End of the War in Gaza and Southern Lebanon

Dear Parishioners of OLOP:

Patriarch Rahi has issued this appeal for all Churches throughout the world to pray for the end of the war in Gaza and Southern Lebanon, and to peace in the regions. We will continue to pray for these intentions, through the intercession of Our Lady of Purgatory.

In Christ,
Fr .Vincent


Dear Brother Priests, Deacons and Subdeacons, Consecrated Men and Women and Lay Faithful,

Please see below an appeal from our Patriarch. Please disseminate this on your social media. Let us pray for peace in our world.


To our esteemed brothers, the patriarchs, bishops, general superiors, male and female, regional superiors, members of the Council of Catholic Patriarchs and Bishops in Lebanon.

As a result of our meeting with Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State of the Vatican, we have decided to issue this appeal: Prayers will be held in all our churches in Lebanon, the patriarchal territories, and diaspora countries on the coming Saturday and Sunday, June 29 and 30, for the end of the war in Gaza and southern Lebanon, and for the establishment of a just and comprehensive peace in these regions.
