After the growing tension that threatens to undermine peace in Ukraine and endanger the security of the European continent and the whole world,
We have responded to the call of His Holiness Pope Francis to pray for peace, and we established in our Church today an hour of prostration and prayer that the Lord Jesus, with the weapon of his love, disarms all weapons of fire and conflict, and encourages all those with good will to work seriously and truly to create a safer and more solidarity world.
We know, after 10 years of experience of the results of the war, what its consequences are for the whole world, especially for the poor and the vulnerable.
We do not want to increase suffering, hunger, homelessness, migration and death, but rather we want to increase the bonds of partnership, unity and participation among all human beings, members of the one human family.
