Bishops of the UGCC urge the faithful to pray for Ukraine at a time when the enemy bulks their troops at Ukrainian borders
A call for prayer and fast is connected to the fact that our Motherland is experiencing new challenges caused by a hybrid war against the Ukrainian people.
Archbishops also mention that last weeks have been with renewed fighting in eastern Ukraine which led to casualties and serious wounds of our defenders. Bishops mention that Church is deeply concerned about a plummeting impoverishment of people and a new manifestation of social inequality, which is extremely deteriorated during the pandemic.
“Feeling this responsibility of parental care, - bishops write, - over our wounded and alarmed people, we, your priests, are calling you to join in praying and fasting for Ukraine. In order to withstand we cannot allow disbelief and disappointment govern us, we have no right to let our hand down, but endure in prayer, fast and performing good deeds”.
