Day of fasting and prayer for peace
September 7, 2013
Pope Francis recently called for a day of fasting and prayer for peace in Syria and throughout the world, to be held on Saturday, Sept. 7.
"This coming Saturday we will live together a special day of fasting and prayer for peace in Syria, the Middle East and throughout the world. I renew the invitation to the whole Church to live this day intensely, and even now I express gratitude to the other Christian brethren, to the brethren of other religions and to the men and women of good will who desire to join in this initiative, in places and ways of their own."
