Crusade Of Prayer for Peace

In September of 1961 the Archdiocese of Washington held a Crusade of Prayer for Peace. At this time the Cold War was well underway and the Soviet Union had recently tested a massive nuclear weapon. The United States would soon resume its nuclear test explosions as well. The Cuban Missile Crisis would follow in a year.

I found the prayer card in my late mother’s Saint Andrew Daily Missal.  She lived in the Washington, DC area at the time of the Prayer for Peace event. To read the prayer click on the card below.
