To be heralds of the Gospel, the message of Christ, is to be promoters of justice that leads to peace for all. Russia invading Ukraine today heralds a message of destruction, a message that flies in the face of peace and opposes the Prince of Peace.
May the people of Ukraine somehow know we are united, hearts and minds, in prayer with them at this moment that marks a stark and painful change in their reality and lives.
Also, please join your prayers and support with ours for NATO leaders, and all forces for good across Europe, as they ardently rise to their roles and responsibilities, the end of which is a peaceful resolution to the current crisis on the continent. With dire implications for all humanity immediately before us, let's do all we can to bring about peace.
May the Paraclete act swiftly;
May there be broad acceptance of the graces available;
May wisdom and prudence guide all actions
Toward a new order where peace, freedom, harmony, and love prevail.
Yours in Christ,
