Promote Peace in the Land of Jesus' Birth

As we await the coming of the Prince of Peace this Advent season, Bishop Howard Hubbard, in his new role as Chairman of the Committee on International Justice and Peace of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), invites us to promote peace in the land of Jesus' birth.

Bishop Hubbard is among a group of prominent Christian leaders urging President-elect Barack Obama “to make achievement of Israeli-Palestinian peace an immediate priority” during his first year in office.

You also can sign a letter to President-elect Obama, which will be delivered to him around the time of his inauguration. This link explains the letter and its purpose and provides a link to the letter itself and a way for you to add your name to the signatories.
