Oct. 27 set as date of Assisi gathering for world peace

Vatican City, Apr 4, 2011 / 05:47 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Benedict XVI will call people of goodwill to join him in working for peace during a “day of reflection, dialogue and prayer for peace and justice in the world” to be held in Assisi on Oct. 27.

At the start of the year, the Pope announced his plans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Pope John Paul’s World Day of Prayer from Peace.

The Vatican announced April 2 that it will take place on the exact anniversary of the original event in 1986.

“Pilgrims of truth, pilgrims of peace” is the theme of the encounter to which the Vatican will invite people of good will of all major creeds and none at all to take part.

“Every human being is ultimately a pilgrim in search of truth and goodness. Believers too are constantly journeying towards God: hence the possibility, indeed the necessity, of speaking and entering into dialogue with everyone, believers and unbelievers alike, without sacrificing one’s own identity or indulging in forms of syncretism,” said the Vatican.

John Paul II’s event came under fire for seemingly promoting a united prayer from participants, which critics have said gave mixed signals to the world, blurring the lines between one religion and another. According to the Vatican’s April 2 communique, Pope Benedict’s gathering will not feature communal prayer as part of the agenda.

The Vatican said in the same statement that the event can be thought of as a pilgrimage for truth that will open a dialogue without excluding certain groups, committing all to fraternity and peace.

For this reason, explained the Vatican, “seekers of truth” who are conscious of a shared responsibility for justice and peace but do not belong to any religion will also be invited.

Participants will travel by train from Rome to Assisi on the morning of the event.

Following a shared lunch and a period of silence for individual reflection and prayer, the group will make a pilgrimage to the Basilica of St. Francis.

Every moment will focus around the contemplation of peace.

The final moment of the day will be a shared and solemn renewal of the delegates’ joint commitment to peace.

To prepare for the event, the Pope will lead a prayer vigil at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome on the evening of Oct. 26. Church communities are invited to organize simultaneous events to pray for its success.

According to the statement, “the Pope asks the Catholic faithful to join him in praying for the celebration of this important event and he is grateful to all those who will be able to be present in Saint Francis’ home town to share this spiritual pilgrimage.”

    This is just one more piece of the end times deception that will divide the sheep from the goats. His return is getting nearer!

    Among protestants, baptists and evangelicals, I wonder who will take part in the gathering.

    More importantly, what men in ministry will stand firmly against taking part, and actually warn others not to go?
    We shall see.

    Hi Laura,

    Pope Benedict refuses to say prayers with the group as PJP2 did. There were people asking questions…
    Damage control? PB16 did not attend the gathering in 1986 when PJP2 prayed with witches, Buddhists, Sikhs, Muslims, witch doctors, etc.
    But either way, the one world religion is moving forward at record speed.

    Love,
    Sue

    “pilgrimage of truth” — “seekers of truth” — I don’t even know what the Vatican means when they use those terms. Jesus is The Truth. They are so blatantly man centered in all their thinking. Why wouldn’t Benedict want to be seen praying with them all? Doesn’t he really mean it when he says truth is found in all religion? Won’t they be offended that he will not pray openly with them?

    And-isn’t Oct. 27th- even the latter half of October, a special time in the occult calendar? Aside from Halloween, I thought I read something a while ago about how the last half of the month of October was especially important to the occultist.

  4. Diane says:

    Excuse my lack of manners–Hello Laura! 🙂

  5. laura754 says:

    Hi Diane! I didn’t think you were in lack of manners at all! 🙂

    I think that the occult world loves Oct because of Halloween.

    No matter when those types on their ‘pilgrimage of truth’ gather, they are ignoring the only gospel that saves.

    Sue, why do you think PB16 would be caring about damage control in this regard?
    Remember when he came out with the comment about Baptists and others not being a ‘real’ church? He doesn’t strike me as afraid of conflict.
    Why do you suppose he didn’t attend the 1986 prayer gathering?

    Is he perhaps more of a pure Catholic than PJP2 was? or should I say more of an anti-non-Catholic groups?

    It’s very interesting that PB16 refrained from a function in which PJP2 was leading, is it not?
    I never knew this and now I wonder.

    Perhaps PB16 is more single focused on Catholicism ruling, and not a joint ecumenical ruling body?

  6. sueliz1 says:

    Hi Laura,

    Yes, I think PB16 is more of a purist. But he needs to move ahead with the NWO anyway, even if some of his private thoughts are less ecumenical. He wasn’t called the Rottweiler for nothing. JP2 was VERY ecumenical, seen kissing the Koran and being buddy-buddy with the Dali Lama.
    PB16 is not the only one controlling things. There is the Jesuit order and the black pope who may hold many of the cards..

  7. laura754 says:

    gulp! 8-<
    The Black Pope!?
    you should do a post on that!

  8. Diane says:

    Hello Laura,

    That would be a good post. I have read a little about the black pope but not very much. Maybe dawn has some good articles. I am trying to read more about the Jesuits too because I am a firm believer they are alive and well and are still in charge of bringing us all back to Rome.

  9. laura754 says:

    I agree Diane. The present pope is also a Jesuit. No coincidence imo.

  10. sueliz1 says:

    Hi Laura and Diane,

    Ivar just did a piece on that. I’ll go find it.

  11. laura754 says:

    Sue,
    Did you find it? I should just go to Ivans site to look. 🙂

  12. laura754 says:

    oh, LOL I just saw the link. I just came in from working all night.

  13. sueliz1 says:

    I posted Ivar’s article..where did it go? hmmmmm.

  14. sueliz1 says:

    Oh, duh. No I’m the doe-doe bird… 😛

  15. laura754 says:

    LOL, no Sue
    you are not the doe-doe bird!! 🙂

  16. Diane says:

    Thanks to you both- will go and have a read right now. Blessings to you.
