Prayer for Peace in Syria following Pope's Plea

Pope Francis in prayer
Pope Francis has called for a worldwide day of Prayer and fasting for peace in Syria, in the Middle East and in the the world on Saturday, 7th September:

"I make a forceful and urgent call to the entire Catholic Church, and also to every Christian of other confessions, as well as to followers of every religion and to those brothers and sisters who do not believe: peace is a good which overcomes every barrier, because it belongs all of humanity!
On 7 September, in Saint Peter’s Square, here, from 19:00 until 24:00, we will gather in prayer and in a spirit of penance, invoking God’s great gift of peace upon the beloved nation of Syria and upon each situation of conflict and violence around the world."

In anticipation of this Cardinal Sandri, in charge of the Congregation of Eastern Rite Churches will be leading a prayer service in London at 4pm on Wednesday 4th September at Ukrainian Greek Catholic Cathedral of the Holy Family in Exile in Duke Street, London near Bond St tube station. All are welcome to attend.
