CWN Editor's Note: Ethiopian troops are fighting against a separatist coalition in the Tigray War, which began in 2020.

“Dear brothers and sisters, our country is in an internal war,” said Cardinal Berhaneyesus Souraphiel of Addis Ababa, the head of the Eastern-rite Ethiopian Catholic Church. “Our Church implores all parties to give space for peace and reconciliation, to sit down for dialogue to save our country and people from destruction, for war is destructive, and nobody benefits from it.”
