Vatican City, September 2 - Pope Francis on
Monday, in multi-lingual, impassioned message on the @Pontifex
Twitter account wrote "War never again! Never again war!".
During Sunday's Mass in St Peter's Square, the Argentine
pontiff called for a fasting and prayer for peace "in Syria, in
the entire Mideast region, and throughout the whole world" to be
held next Saturday.
"On the 7th of September, here [in St Peter's Square],
from 7 pm until midnight, we will gather together in prayer, in
a spirit of penitence, to ask from God this great gift [of
peace] for the beloved Syrian nation and for all the situations
of conflict and violence in the world", Pope Francis said.
Francis also invited non-Catholic Christians and
non-Christian believers to participate in ways they feel are
appropriate.
"We want a peaceful world...we want to be men and women of
peace," he said.
He called on all parties "to seek negotiations" and urged
the international community to take concrete steps to end
conflicts, especially the war in Syria.
