Pope calls for day of prayer and penance for peace on Sunday

Pope Benedict XVI has called on people of all religious faiths "to implore God for the precious gift of peace" in dedicating Sunday, July 23 as a day dedicated to penance and prayers for peace in the Middle East.

Specifically the pope has urged for prayers for
  • an immediate cease-fire between the sides
  • the establishment of a humanitarian corridor to bring aid to the suffering people
  • the start of reasonable and responsible negotiations so as to end the objective situations of injustice in that region.
