    Tens of thousands of people have answered Pope Francis' call and massed in St. Peter's Square for a 4-hour prayer vigil for peace in Syria. Rainbow "Peace" flags fluttered in the evening breeze and religious leaders from a variety of Christian and non-Christian denominations joined cardinals, politicians and ordinary folk for the evening of prayer, hymns and meditation presided over by Francis.
