Video: "Liturgy of Repentance" at White House Demonstration

By BillyClub - Posted on 22 February 2012

On Ash Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2012, a "liturgy of repentance" demonstration was held, at noon, in front of the White House. The peace and justice activists advocated a "radical conversion" for themselves and for others to nonviolence, peace-making and a reverence for all of God's creation. They also demanded an immediate end to "U.S. war-making," and for the Churches to return to the "Gospel way of [seeking] Justice." One of the speakers, Father Joseph Nangle, urged the Roman Catholic Church, as an institution, to "end its silence" on the above issues. The event was sponsored by, among others, "The Dorothy Day Catholic Worker."
