Prayers for peace at Walsingham
Comment Email Print
 A peace candle was lit in the Holy House of the Shrine of our Lady of Walsingham, following news of the outbreak of war against Iraq. The Rev Philip North, Anglican administrator of the Shrine, said that special prayers were said today for all those caught up in this terrible conflict and for peace throughout the world. "The candle will burn in the Shrine until there is a peaceful solution to the current problems in the Gulf, said Fr North on Friday. Prayers for peace will also be offered at Shrine Prayers every evening at 6pm. "The Holy House is somewhere for people to discover the peace of God at this uncertain time," added Fr North. Prayers for all involved in the current conflict will be said, remembering particularly the Iraqi people and UK families who have relatives serving in the Armed Forces. Walsingham in Norfolk is known as England's Nazareth and attracts thousands of pilgrims every year from all over the world. It is cared for the Catholic and Anglican churches.
