Pope Francis tries to prevent war in Ukraine

Pope Francis once again spoke out in an effort to prevent a war from breaking out in Europe.

Like me, many people all over the world are anguished and worried. Once again, everyone’s peace is threatened by one side’s interests.

In his first public appearance since Vladimir Putin recognized the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, the Pope asked the Russian leader to think about his actions and begged for an end to tensions.

I would like to appeal to those with political responsibilities, so that they can make a serious examination of conscience before God, who is the God of peace and not of war; who is the Father of all, not only of some; who wants us to be brothers and sisters, not enemies. I ask all parties involved to refrain from any action that could bring even more suffering to the people, disturbing the coexistence among nations and undermining international law.

The Pope also invited believers and non-believers to observe a day of prayer and fasting for peace on Ash Wednesday, on March 2.
