Ukraine, Holy See appeal with Guterres and Shevchuk: “Easter truce to achieve peace”

“The Holy See and the Holy Father join in the appeal that Antonio Guterres, UN secretary general, in agreement with Sviatoslav Shevchuk, head of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church, launched on April 19, for a truce on the occasion of the celebration of Easter according to the Julian calendar, on April 24th “. The Vatican said this, recalling that “on last Palm Sunday Pope Francis had already asked for an Easter truce, in order to achieve peace”. “In the awareness that nothing is impossible for God – reads the note – they invoke the Lord so that the population trapped in war zones be evacuated and peace be restored soon, and they ask those who have the responsibility of nations to listen to the cry for peace of people”.
