Pope Francis Requests Day of Prayer for Peace in Ukraine
As the threat of Russian invasion into Ukraine grows, Our Lady of the Wayside will join Pope Francis on Wednesday, January 26, in a day of prayer for peace in the Eastern European country. Prayers will be offered during the 8:30 am Mass and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at 2:00 pm.
“I am following with concern the increase of tensions that threaten to inflict a new blow to the peace in Ukraine, and call into question the security of the European continent, with wider repercussions,” the pope said after his weekly Angelus address Jan. 23.
“I make a heartfelt appeal to all people of good will, that they may raise prayers to God Almighty, that every political action and initiative may serve human brotherhood, rather than partisan interests,” he stated.
