“My heart aches greatly at the worsening situation in Ukraine”…says Pope Francis
“And now I would like to appeal to everyone, believers and non-believers alike. Jesus taught us that the diabolical senselessness of violence is answered with God’s weapons, with prayer and fasting. I invite everyone to make next 2 March, Ash Wednesday, a Day of Fasting for Peace. I encourage believers in a special way to dedicate themselves intensely to prayer and fasting on that day. May the Queen of Peace preserve the world from the madness of war.” (to read Pope’s full address, go to: https://www.vatican.va/…/20220223-udienza-generale.html)
