Medical Mission Sisters in 17 nations join others around the world in observing “World Day of Prayer” on March 3. Begun by Christian laywomen, it is now observed by people of many faiths on the first Friday of March. All are invited to join in prayer and action for peace and justice. Its 2017 theme — “Am I Being Unfair to You?” — is a call to open our minds, hearts and hands in response to the violence and injustice in our world.
