No to War in Iran

January 08, 2020
By Sister Ruth Battaglia, CSA

As members of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious and as community committed to the promotion of non-violence, we join with LCWR and the other communities of faith in condemning the United States’ assassination of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the deployment of additional troops to the region, and the threat of further violent action in Iran. Together let us pray for the de-escalation of tensions and the establishment of peace.
