CWN Editor's Note: “People are certainly frightened here, particularly since Catholic parishioners and clergy could now be called up, beginning with those who’ve done military service,” a priest said following Russian President Vladimir Putin’s mobilization order. “The mass mobilization will very much affect Church life here, particularly since many Catholics are strongly against the war and won’t want to take part.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
