Crimean bishop appeals for calm
Catholic World News - March 03, 2014
A Latin-rite bishop in the Crimea appealed for calm as Russian troops occupied the autonomous peninsula, which is part of Ukraine.
Auxiliary Bishop Jacek Pyl of Odessa-Simferopol urged the faithful “not to stop praying for peace” and urged “those who can to fast voluntarily,” the Religious Information Service of Ukraine reported.
“In our prayers we remember all Crimeans, regardless of religion, background, or political views,” he added. “We pray that the people, who for decades lived in peace, do not lift hands against each other.”
