Statement on Ukraine
To the Clergy and Faithful of the Old Roman Catholic Church and the Priestly Society of Mercy:
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost be with you all.
With many of you, I watched the invasion of Ukraine with horror and deep sadness. This action of aggression against the people and nation of Ukraine is unacceptable. Now, more than ever, our Ukrainian brothers and sisters need our prayers and support as they face overwhelming Russian forces.
I ask you to join the appeal of Pope Francis and make Ash Wednesday, March 2, a day of fasting and prayer for peace in Ukraine. As Christians, we are called to dwell in unity and to solve differences amicably. Please continue to pray that peace will be achieved, and that bloodshed will cease.
Our Mother of Mercy, pray for us!
Yours in Christ,
The News Portal of the Society of Mercy.
