Pope Francis has called for a day of fasting and prayer for peace in Syria now on Saturday Sep 7th. He invites not only Catholics but all otehr people to join for this fasting. Look at:
Fasting? Choose before how you will live this fasting. Fasting is not only to abstain from eating or drinking, but is also about withdrawal from media and excessive comminication. It´s also connected to prayer. So gather if you can to pray together, and pray alone in silence.
This is not a media event. We humans are interconnected in God who has entered the human nature. Praying and fasting for an intention, as now for peace in Syria, does not only change our own heart, but does change the whole humanity. Each one is thus important in his or her participation,
