Two Days of Fasting and Prayer For Iraq

Chaldean patriarch Emmanuel Delly has called for two days of prayer and fasting for peace and security in Iraq. His call has been supported by Pope Benedict XVI. It's also supported by Iraqi Muslims as reported by AsiaNews:

His Beatitude Emmanuel III Delly is above all grateful to Pope Benedict XVI for joining in two days of prayer and fasting for peace and security in Iraq. And he has stressed that this move he proposed is also shared and spread by the country'’s Shiite and Sunni communities who are making the event known through the media in Iraq and the Arab world. In an interview with AsiaNews, the Chaldean patriarch said that at the end of the two days of fasting, he will celebrate Mass in the cathedral, in the presence of Muslim figures who "“want to pray with us."”
