WATCH: Summary of the Pope's Peace Prayer Summit

Didn't get an invite, but are curious anyway? Here is a short version of the peace prayer summit, via Peres' YouTube channel.


Didn't get an invite, but are curious anyway? A video summarizing the peace prayer summit hosted by Pope Francis at the Vatican on Sunday was posted to the official YouTube channel of President Shimon Peres.

Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas were invited to the Vatican by the pope during his recent visit to the Middle East, during which he visited Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinian territories.

Vatican officials have described the prayer evening as something of a "time-out" in political negotiations, merely designed to rekindle the desire for peace through prayers common to all the main faith traditions in the Holy Land.
