Prayer: Weapon of Mass Conversion

A Trappistine nun in Syria has emphasized the power of prayer in an interview with the Vatican newspaper.

The members of her community have strongly criticized President Barack Obama’s plans to attack Syria.

Pope Francis’s vigil of prayer for peace “may be the only real chance to counter this madness and prevent another armed intervention that will certainly not help a people who have already been martyred,” said Sister Marta Luisa Fagnani. “Prayer and fasting are like weapons to empty oneself of oneself and to try to be more reasonable, to make oneself listen to a deeper wisdom.”

“Prayer is powerful, of that we are convinced,” she added. “Otherwise, we would not have chosen this life. Prayer is not just a devotion, it is not just a retreat into peace. It is a powerful weapon, though also a peaceful one. It moves the heart, it has a force of its own. We believe this firmly.”

  1. I Pray, that Obama will not convince any Countries, including our own Super Power, to intervene in Military Action, by sending Missiles into Syria……for Punishment! Kerry, once called Assad, Our Friend, very mixed ideas, catering to Obamas Legacy!
