Catholic Patriarch Calls For Day of Prayer and Fasting For Peace in the Holy Land

Patriarch Pierbattista Pizzaballa blesses the congregation at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem on April 4, 2021.

In response, Catholics from around the world have also pledged to join in the fast for peace in the Holy Land in solidarity, which falls on the feast of St. Ignatius of Antioch, the first-century bishop and martyr from Syria.
