Two of them I thought important enough to share on a blog that is, after all, called “Pray Tell“:

First is the Pope’s prayer intention for September, namely  “That people today, often overwhelmed by noise, may rediscover the value of silence and listen to the voice of God and their brothers and sisters.”

Second is the Pope’s call for this coming Saturday, September 7, to be marked as a day of fasting and prayer for peace in Syria, in the entire Mideast region, and throughout the whole world.
