#ShortNews: Catholics, Muslims march for peace between Pakistan, India

“We recalled the message of fraternity launched by Pope Francis and stressed the need for peace in the world. We have committed ourselves together, Christians and Muslims, to continue the mission of peace, harmony and solidarity in order to make Pakistan a better place to live in. I hope this gathering and this pilgrimage will serve to promote genuine peace between Pakistan and India”. This is what Archbishop Sebastian Francis Shaw told Agenzia Fides at the conclusion of a gathering and an inter-religious march for the peace that has reached in recent days Kasur, on the border between India and Pakistan, to the village of Ganda Singh, right on the border, where there was a solemn prayer ceremony for peace.

A celebration of prayer took place at the Catholic Cathedral of the Sacred Heart of Lahore, and there the religious leaders present planted an olive tree in the garden, as a symbol of peace. The procession, entitled “Together for Peace”, held on 11 February, was attended by faithful Christians and Muslims who welcomed the initiative.
