POPE PRAYS FOR SLAIN HAITI PRIEST

          VATICAN CITY (CWNews.com) - Pope John Paul II on Wednesday prayed for a Haitian priest shot dead on Monday as the latest in a series of violence in the poor island nation.

          "Faced with a new, awful episode of violence, I urge you to pray for God to welcome our brother into his kingdom and support the dear nation of Haiti and all of humanity in the quest for respect of every human life," he said. Father Jean Pierre Louis, 50, was shot twice in broad daylight as he left his car in the business district in Port-au-Prince on Monday. He died a few minutes after he was taken to hospital.
