Pope Francis during his weekly General Audience on Wednesday again appealed for Ukraine, reminding those gathered in St Peter’s Square that for a long time the country’s population has been suffering the consequences of armed conflict, forgotten, he said, by many.

The Holy Father thanked in advance those who will contribute generously to this initiative this weekend.

On April 3rd during his Regina Coeli address the Pope announced a special charity collection to support the people of Ukraine telling the faithful it would be possible to contribute to the collection in all Catholic Churches in Europe on Sunday April 24th and saying that, “this gesture of charity, beyond alleviating material suffering, expresses my personal closeness and the solidarity of the entire Church”.

Vatican Secretary of State cardinal Pietro Parolin issued a special letter to the Bishops Conferences of Europe explaining the procedure of collection and giving the proper report of the situation and the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Cardinal asked bishops in Europe to send offerings as soon as possible "given the extraordinary and pressing nature of this initiative".

      Irinej's comments would be laughable if they weren't so incredibly pathetic.

      Преступления для честных, а для жуликов, лжецов, грабителей и убийц - норма жизни ещё с 1917 года.

      Для "чого це потрібно"? ---- Мабуть, як "приклад" і своєрідний "взірець" ("шлях"), як саме нині в Україні греко-католики й православні, мовляв, можуть

      Легкий на помині Ісіченко. Але для чого це потрібно Блаженійшому Святославу?
