The contemplative Benedictines of Solonka, in Ukraine, near Lviv, are used to silence and solitude. But because of the crisis, they have opened their doors. Since the end of February 2022, they have assisted hundreds of needy families, helping to feed them and shelter them. May God bless them.
Prayer for Ukraine: Lord, we ask You to give peace, we pray for the defenders of Ukraine, we pray for the people, for the refugees, we pray for the conversion of Vladimir Putin, we pray that we begin Lent and we go through it to your Resurrection. We realize that every crucifixion lived in you, every cross gives in life. May the Mother of God cover Ukraine and the world under her mantle. Amen
Archbishop Metropolitan Borys Gudziak
Thank you for your continued support and prayers for the faithful of Ukraine.

“Many of the people in South Sudan have never known anything else. There are generations that were born into war. And the last war was terrible, so much was destroyed. Schools, infrastructure, hospitals, churches, lives, many women and children, and there was also an attempt to eliminate people with a certain education, people who could become future leaders.”
