Local Monastery Holds Prayer Hour To Pray For Peace In Korea and Abroad

Posted: Updated:

With tensions between North Korea and several other countries reaching their boiling point, the Mount Saint Benedict Monastery held a prayer hour as a means to call for peace, as well as nuclear disarment. 

Members of the Monastary and the public gathered in song and in silence as a means to call on the end of hostility.

Sister Susan Doubet said that holding a prayer hour is a practice that meets the Benedictine Mission Statement of peace.

So, anything, whether it's,local, national or international, if it involves peace, if it involves choosing violence over non-violence, if it involves war, or anything that builds up a military presence, we speak out." Doubet said. "And we also enter into prayer, like this."

The call for peace in Korea runs on a personal side with the sisters as one of their own is currently in South Korea for a meeting with other Benedictine sisters.
