Speaking at a session of the Zagreb ecclesiastical province at the offices of the Sisak Diocese, Bozanić said the Church was ready to help and take in refugees from Ukraine who were forced to flee their country.
We will provide assistance through the Caritas charity, which is an important segment of the Church, he said.
“It is not difficult for us to understand the situation in Ukraine, that is why we are ready to do everything we can.”
“We are joining in Pope Francis’ call to pray together and fast for peace in the province and the entire world. Ash Wednesday will be observed in that spirit and many bishops have decided to do so throughout Lent. We must not stop praying for peace. We want what is going on in Ukraine to end as soon as possible even though we cannot predict future developments, but we will do all we can in the spiritual, material and human sense,” Cardinal Bozanić said.
