Ash Wednesday – Prayer and fasting for peace

The attack on Ukraine has begun. War in Europe in the 21st century seemed impossible. The risks of an escalation are unimaginable. Pope Francis calls us to counter the power of arms with the ‘weakness’ of prayer.

Speaking at the end of the General Audience, Pope Francis invited everyone to make 2 March, Ash Wednesday, a Day of Fasting for Peace.

“I encourage believers in a special way to dedicate themselves intensely to prayer and fasting on that day. May the Queen of Peace preserve the world from the madness of war,” he said.
