Pope Francis has asked for prayers for peace. In an appeal that can be found here, the Pope has made an appeal for peace in light of the many conflicts present in the world today. He is asking for the whole Church to keep vigil September 7th with fasting and prayers for peace in our world, especially in Syria and the Middle East. He is asking all of us to participate in any way we can. I am going to pray and fast this day and hopefully will join with others in my local community to gather and pray in one of the churches.
“Humanity needs to see these gestures of peace and to hear words of hope and peace!” said the Pope.
“All men and women of good will are bound by the task of pursuing peace,” he charged.
Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us!
