 The people of the Archdiocese of Chicago stand with our brothers and sisters suffering under attack in Ukraine.

Most of us know war in Europe from the stories of our parents and grandparents, from history portrayed in films and books. This attack on a peaceful, sovereign nation is a sad reminder that the work of peace is never over.

Please pray with me for the safety of all now under fire and for those in other nations fearful the war in Ukraine may overspread their borders.

I have asked that prayers for peace in Ukraine be added to all Masses in the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Our Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for them.
