Contact your two U.S. Senators and your Representative and urge them to vote against a resolution that authorizes the use of military force in Syria. Instead, ask them to support U.S. leadership, in collaboration with the international community, for an immediate ceasefire in Syria and negotiations for peace. Call or write your Representative and Senators!
During the week of September 9, Congress is expected to take up a resolution which authorizes the use of military force in Syria in response to heinous chemical weapons attacks on innocent civilians. Providentially, Pope Francis has declared September 7 a Day of Fasting and Prayer for Peace in Syria, the Middle East, and throughout the World. In solidarity with our Holy Father, USCCB will engage in prayer, fasting and advocacy for peace in Syria. Please join if you are willing/able.
