Pray for Peace in Ukraine

Pope Francis has expressed concern over increasing tensions threatening peace and security in Ukraine and Europe.

“I make a heartfelt appeal to all people of good will¬† to raise prayers to the Almighty God that all political actions and initiatives may be at the service of human brotherhood rather than partisan interests.

Those who pursue their interests by damaging others are in contempt of his vocation as a man, because we were all created as brothers.” (January 23, after the midday Angelus)

We join in praying for peace and for an end to every form of violence and oppression.
