a promise that a wall would fall

19 Sep


One of the promises of Our Lady in Fatima was that, if people prayed, there would be an end to Communism. This remnant of the Berlin Wall is on display near the entrance to the sanctuary of Fatima. Maybe we pray-ers could ask Our Lady to join our prayer that the wall of suspicion, fear and sadness that stands between the Israelis and Palestinians would one day fall. Maybe someday a piece of that Wall in the Holy Land could be on display in Fatima, too, as evidence of the non-violent force of prayer for forgiveness, reconciliation and freedom for the people who live on both sides of that ugly structure.
