A Day of Prayer and Fasting For Peace in Syria

The Pope calls for prayer and fasting for peace in Syria, and the American Bishops translate that into "write your congressman":
Cardinal Dolan and leaders of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops followed the Pope’s lead and wrote to every member of Congress today urging them to vote against military intervention in Syria. Yesterday the USCCB also wrote to President Obama, reminding him that the Pope and Middle Eastern Bishops “have made it clear that a military attack will be counterproductive, will exacerbate an already deadly situation, and will have unintended negative consequences.” Dolan also asked Catholics to urge their representatives in Washington to vote against a military strike.
Hey, fellas... don't forget the primary message, that the pope called for prayer and fasting.  Remember that?
