Social Justice 2014

Preview: Website aims to foster spirituality of awareness


The Justice and Peace Commission of South Africa is using the Internet to ask people around the world to pray for matters concerning human rights at least once a week. The commission's website,, created on Aug. 23, 2013, allows anyone concerned with social and political justice topics -- such as poverty, war and climate -- to submit written prayers. Once an organization or activist submits a prayer, it can be prayed by the faithful around the world.
