    What if people of faith did unite in world-wide prayer?

    That's really all the common folk can do- call on their God and show solidarity for seeking solutions and wisdom to an evil tragedy.
    While leaders and politicians wring their hands and protract the debate, more innocents die every day. Radicals, murderers and thugs cannot have free reign on civilians and children in their war against despots and ideologies.

    What if we really believed in the faith we profess, and at least speak out in global unity...
    We may not change the seats of power, but we can do more than turn back to American Idol or Fantasy Football.

    Thank you, Pope Francis! Now where are the other voices of conscience and faith?

    Amen to your words of counsel, Pope Francis.

    Let's just hope the Islamic sect of Assad regime, and the Muslim Brotherhood, and Hamas, and all the rest listen very closely to the Christian Pope!
