Pope Francis with Patriarch Bartholomew praying for peace in a conference with President Shimon Peres of Israel and President Mohammed Abbas of Palestine at the Vatican, June 8, 2014.  (Full article).

This is remarkable, not only that Israel and Palestine are "praying for peace" together - but also the Patriarchs of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches are praying together with them.  We should all unite in prayer with them!
