Default Pope calls for Fast

Today, 1 September 2013, the Pope proclaimed a world day of fasting for peace in Syria, to take place this coming Saturday.

"To this end, brothers and sisters, I have decided to proclaim for the whole Church on 7 September next, the vigil of the birth of Mary, Queen of Peace, a day of fasting and prayer for peace in Syria, the Middle East, and throughout the world, and I also invite each person, including our fellow Christians, followers of other religions and all men of good will, to participate, in whatever way they can, in this initiative."

This is a sacrifice for all the atrocities that are happening in the world today, especially in Syria.

US Bishops also join the call

The day of prayer and fasting seems to have borne fruit. Syria agrees to plan to put chemical weapons under international control.
