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.

    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.
