Muslim-Christian meditation to commemorate Trappists' murder

Catholic World News - March 22, 2011

Cardinal Philippe Barbarin of Lyon and two local Muslim leaders will lead a brief period of meditation on March 26 to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the murder of seven Trappists in Algeria. Following the meditation, Eucharistic adoration will be held so that people may pray for persecuted Christians.

    I see no need for supporters of the murderers to participate. I mean, why in the world would muslim clerics participate in Adoration?

    The movie "Of Gods and Men" is a sensitive treatment of this occurrence. Indeed, a must see movie for Lent.
