Pope leads mass vigil for peace

popeprayerPope Francis led a mass vigil for peace in Syria on St Peter’s square as millions of Catholics worldwide were joined by other faiths in a day of fasting and prayer.

Tens of thousands gathered in St Peter’s Square for the four-hour event, with smaller gatherings held in churches, mosques and synagogues around the globe.

Francis has called for a “cry for peace” from humanity, firmly opposing all fighting including the military strikes against the Syrian regime being pushed by the United States and France.
