Speaking at his general audience, Pope Francis said “This Saturday (coming, September 7, 2013) we’ll experience together a special day of fasting and prayers for peace in Syria, the Middle East and across the world. I renew my appeal to all the Church to live this day intensely and I also express gratitude to our Christian brothers and sisters and those of other religions and to all men and women of good will who wish to join this event, wherever they may be and in their own way. I particularly urge the faithful in Rome and pilgrims to take part in this prayer vigil here in St. Peter’s Square at 7pm, to invoke from the Lord the great gift of peace. Let us raise a strong cry for peace across the globe!”
