Pope Francis’ Front Page Reflection Mar 4, 2022

First Sunday of Lent

My heart aches greatly at the worsening situation in Ukraine.

Despite the diplomatic efforts of the last few weeks,

increasingly alarming scenarios are opening up. 

Like me, many people all over the world are feeling anguish and concern.  Once again the peace of all is threatened by partisan interests. 

I would like to appeal to those with political responsibility to examine their consciences

seriously before God, who is the God of peace and not of war; who is the Father of all, not just of some, who wants us to be brothers and not enemies. 

I pray that all the parties involved refrain from any action that would cause even more suffering to the people,

destabilising coexistence between nations and bringing

international law into disrepute.

 

And now 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 encourage believers in a special way to dedicate

themselves intensely to prayer and fasting this Lent.

 

May the Queen of Peace preserve the world from the

madness of war.
