Guam residents pray for peace as North Korea deadline looms

Guam residents pray for peace as North Korea deadline loomsThe Catholic faithful in Guam led prayers for peace Sunday in the shadow of North Korean missile threat, with the western Pacific island’s archbishop appealing for “prudence” amid an escalating war of words between the US and Pyongyang. The largely Catholic territory should pray for a “just resolution of differences, and prudence in both speech and action”, said Archbishop Michael Byrnes, echoing a flurry of international calls for US President Donald Trump to show greater rhetorical restraint. A “prayers for peace” lunchtime rally in the capital Hagatna drew around 100 people.
