"For nine days, from February 15 to 23 this year, we will pray a litany to the Most Precious Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. We encourage all people of good will to join in the Lord's prayer that he may wash away the sins of humanity with his precious and innocent blood and grant us salvation from war and eternal destruction. We sincerely thank all those who join in the common prayer and bless them from the bottom of our hearts," the bishops of the Roman Catholic Church said in their address on the war.
