Global Prayer for Peace in Syria...

A global day of fasting and praying on Saturday has been called by the Catholic Church for peace in Syria and to oppose any military intervention in the country, with Pope Francis scheduled to host a mass vigil in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican.

The Argentinian pope has called for a "cry for peace" from the Christians as well as believers from other faiths and atheists.

Syria's Sunni Muslim leader, Grand Mufti Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun, has called for Syrians to join in the prayers and the patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew I, spiritual leader of the world's Orthodox, has said he is also backing the initiative, according to AFP news agency.
