Auxiliary Bishop Jan Sobilo: To Win the War, Ukraine Should Fast and Pray

In his interview to Radio Maria Bishop Jan Sobilo mentioned the outrage of Catholics in the area of Anti-Terror Operation: the rest of the country continues a normal life of entertainment, as if nothing is happening in Ukraine. The bishop said that it is a completely inadequate response. In his opinion, Ukraine should urgently abandon ordinary life and begin to fast and pray. "It's as if the Titanic is sinking, people in neigborhood play music and have fun."
Bishop Jan also spoke about the Roman Catholic Church in the territory of ATO. In the occupied cities churhes are open, but the Masses are not held due to danger. In Kramatorsk the Church of the Holy Spirit was damaged during the fighting.
In cities under the control of military mercenaries currently there are no priests. They are visiting the parishes, where there is an opportunity to celebrate Mass.
In Mariupol Roman Catholics are actively involved in defending the city against a possible attack by Russian troops.
