Pope Benedict Calls for Fasting April 3-4, 2006

Pope Benedict XVI has called for us to fast yesterday and today (April 3rd and 4th) for peace throughout the world but especially in Iraq. He specifically called the Iraqi Christians to pray while "entrusting this intention to the intercession of Mary most holy, Queen of Peace."

Let us fast and pray for them today:

O God, Who bringest wars to nought and shieldest by Thy power all who hope in Thee, overthrowing those that assail them: help Thy servants who implore Thy mercy, so that the fierce might of their enermies may be brought low, and we may never cease to praise and thank thee. Through our Lord.
