The Italian Earthquakes, August & October 2016

The September, 2016 meeting of the CIB Conference was held in Assisi some days after the first devastating earthquake of 24 August  2016 hit Central Italy.  Upon hearing of the extensive damage of some of the monasteries in that area, the CIB members voted to express the solidarity of all of our communities with them by a YEAR OF PRAYER to go until 24 August 2017 (the first anniversary of the first earthquake). 

Every Wednesday (the day of the first earthquake), we invite you to pray this prayer (or a prayer of your own choosing) for all those affected:
