Religious leaders responded to global violence and terrorism with solidarity and prayer on Wednesday in Washington, D.C.
"We will stand together, strengthened by the faith of each one in this room and the solidarity we share, simply because we know how to answer the question 'Who is my neighbor?'" stated Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington, D.C., preaching on the Parable of the Good Samaritan in the Gospel of Luke at a Dec. 16 interfaith prayer service.
"Let us never forget, we are each other's neighbor," he added.
The "Interfaith Gathering for Solidarity, Understanding, and Peace" took place at Georgetown University on Dec. 16, featuring prayers, readings, and reflections from Catholic, Christian, Muslim, Sikh and Jewish leaders.
