"Let us pray for peace: peace in the world and in each of our hearts." - Pope Francis
As mentioned in the previous posting, Pope Francis has declared Saturday, September 7th, to be a world day of prayer and fasting for Syria and its people.
People will gather in St. Peter's Square on this day in Eucharistic Adoration, to pray the rosary, and offer sacrifices through fasting. The Grand Mufti of Syria, Ahmad Badreddin Hassou, spiritual leader of Sunni Islam, has requested to be present in St. Peter's square on this day.
No doubt, this event will be live-streamed and covered by Catholic TV stations. Please join the Pope and Christians all throughout the world. The future of Syria, Syrian Christians, and ultimately, humanity, need all the prayers we can offer.
