Praying Publicly For Healing & Change.

MILL VALLEY, CA

Saturday at noon, members of RAOC joined Our Lady of Mount Carmel’s “Prayer For Wholeness” in the Depot Town Square in Mill Valley. We were joined by the pastors of other Christian Churches in Mill Valley as we prayed for abuse victims, for healing and for change. We all feel so helpless, and our Holy Church is being torn apart at this time. But we came together, to pray, to make a statement by just showing up: we are here, we are concerned, we want healing, we want change. Each participant brought a flower for a victim—the resulting bouquet was stunning. Father Pat led a beautiful, heartfelt litany of prayer as we all responded, in unison, “Lord, in your mercy, hear us.”
