My heart aches greatly at the worsening situation in Ukraine…

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 Wednesday next 2nd 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 our Blessed Mother Mary, the Queen of Peace, preserve the world from the madness of war.
