Rome, September 4 - Italy's Integration Minister
Cecile Kyenge said Wednesday that she will support Pope
Francis's call for peace in Syria by joining his international
day of fasting and prayer.
"I will fast to build with you and Papa Francesco a peace
beyond the boundaries and borders," Kyenge said in a tweet to
her followers posted on her Twitter feed.
Earlier in the day, Francis vowed to lead prayers and
fasting on Saturday to promote peace in Syria, the Middle East
and around the world.
As he spoke, the United States appeared close to a bombing
campaign against Syria, where the government has apparently been
attacking its citizens with poison gas.
The Grand Mufti of Syria, Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun, and
member of Rome's Jewish community and along with chief rabbi
Riccardo Di Segni have also said they will take part in
Saturday's initiative, making it an inter-religious peace vigil.
The pope has urged pilgrims and the faithful in Rome to
join a prayer vigil in St. Peter's Square at 19:00 on Saturday.
