Faith opportunity

Written by Rosa Colucci on .

It was uplifting and encouraging to pick up the Post-Gazette on Thursday and notice the front-page article about people of all faiths being drawn to pray for the G-20 summit ("Message of Faith Will Be Delivered to Delegates," Aug. 27).

Pittsburgh is a city of faith, and we have been given a great opportunity in hosting the G-20 summit. We should not be remiss in thinking that we as common citizens have no impact on this summit. Rather, we have the opportunity through our prayer and expressing our voice to remind our leaders gathering that every human person has dignity and that our faith calls us to seek not only the spiritual good of others but also their temporal welfare.

May God bless the delegates gathering for the G-20 summit and may God bless us all to be instruments of peace.
