CHICAGO -- Chicago religious leaders say the city needs spiritual healing and Monday night the archbishop sought to start the conversation with an interfaith prayer meeting.
The last several weeks have been draining for just about every Chicagoan.
Across the city, Chicagoans have seen heightened racial tension, the abuse of authority, political corruption and unrelenting violence.
Events have spurred civil unrest.
Archbishop Blasé Cupich opened the doors of Holy Name Cathedral to all denominations and all neighborhoods, for a solidarity prayer as weary Chicagoans attempt to heal broken spirits.
While there is a sense of turmoil right now, many people who attended tonight's service say they have hope that Chicago, “the city that works,” will eventually work together to fix these serious problems.
