The Pope mentioned the day of intercession today after he had prayed the midday Angelus with those gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

“In communion with the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem and the Custody of the Holy Land, I spiritually unite myself to the prayer of many Christians in every part of the world, and I greet from my heart all those who have come today for this observance,” he said.

The prayer day initiative began last year, and linked some 500 cities where the faithful committed to Masses and Eucharistic adoration to pray for peace.

The event is organized by Italian youth organizations Papaboys, Youth for Life and Chapels of Perpetual Adoration in Italy.
