Day for Peace – 7 September 2013


Pope Francis has called for a Day of Fasting and Prayer for Peace in response to the crises in war torn Syria.

In light of that, I could not help but reflect on the uncanny resemblance between this and that of St Francis of Assisi, who wrote after his visit to the Middle East (c.1220), letters to leaders, wishing peace and calling for unity in prayer.

For reference is:
Letter to the Rulers of the Peoples (1220)

Join us and pray, fast or simply pause in petition, for peace in our world and in our hearts.
