Pope renews his call to join Saturday's day of prayer for peace
“May the cry for peace rise loudly throughout the earth”
“May the cry for peace rise loudly throughout the earth!” Pope Francis repeated this call to the many faithful in St Peter's Square on Wednesday morning, 4 September, at the first General Audience following the summer break.
At the end of the meeting the Pope renewed his invitation to live intensely this special day of prayer and fasting scheduled from 7pm to 11pm in St Peter's Square.
It is a call to “Christian brothers and sisters, to brothers and sisters of other religions and to the men and women of good will who will be joining us at this event in the places and ways that are proper to them” and one which believers and non-believers around the world are heeding.
The various groups and individuals at the General Audience also demonstrated their enthusiasm for the Pope's appeal for peace.
