War in Ukraine, fasting for peace


The Link2007 network has decided to adhere with conviction to the day of fasting for peace in Ukraine, as proposed by the Holy Father Francis for Wednesday 2 March. «A day to be close to the suffering of the Ukrainian people, to feel all brothers and sisters and implore God for an end to the war. […] Those who wage war forget humanity. He doesn’t start from the people, he doesn’t look at the concrete life of the people, but puts partisan and power interests first. […] Jesus taught us that the diabolical senselessness of violence is answered with the weapons of God: with prayer and fasting» . Link2007 also adheres to Pope Francis’ appeal to political personalities to make a serious examination of conscience: «I pray to all the parties involved to refrain from any action that causes even more suffering to the populations, destabilizing coexistence between nations and discrediting international law ».
