Special Coverage Invocation for Peace
On Pentecost Sunday 2014, we celebrated the gift of the Holy Spirit and remembered the moment he descended on the Apostles.

Salt + Light had extensive live coverage of this historic event with Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB. Check out the speeches made at the Invocation for Peace: Pope Francis, The President of Israel Shimon Peres & The President of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas. Let's review it now!
