The Russian invasion of Ukraine brings war to Europe again. War, though it may sometimes appear justified in human eyes, is always in itself purely evil. This war brings confusion terror and death to the civilian population of Ukraine with millions now displaced as they seek safety from the war zones and others sheltering in cellars and metro stations in the major cities. We pray for a swift end to the fighting as the Ukrainian forces defend their country and their people and we pray for the strengthening of those seeking peace and that their efforts may be blessed. We pray for peace and justice and for an end to the suffering.
