MOST REVEREND SEAN BRADY
ARCHBISHOP OF ARMAGH
The political parties in Northern Ireland will shortly consider the response of the two Governments to the recent talks in Weston Park.
I encourage all people of goodwill to reflect on the critical stage we have reached in the peace process and to pray that God will guide all who have serious political decisions to make at this time. The long-term future and wellbeing of us all is at stake. The political progress made to date must be consolidated and built-upon. The very fragile peace we enjoy at present must be strengthened.
I request clergy to make this crucial situation the subject of special prayer on Sunday, 29 July.
