The Seminar in Lima-Peru

by Sr. Juscieda Maria; Brasília, June 4-6.

hhhI want to share with you one of the most important moments. On Tuesday all the participants, almost one hundred, were invited to pray in the monument called the Monument of Reparation. In that place they have a labyrinth made by little stones, and each stone represents the all people’s lives that were killed by the terrorists called Sendero Luminoso in Peru. It was a guerrilla organization.

In the center of the labyrinth is the Eye that Cries conveys. It not only denounces the violence committed by human beings in general, but it is also a testimony of recent Peruvian history of violence. There we prayed for all people and their families. We prayed also for all victims of violence in Latin American and over the world.
