General Minister Tibor Kauser, OFS, is echoing Pope Francis’s call for prayers for peace in Ukraine. “I invite you dear brothers and sisters, to strengthen our unity with each other, with the whole Franciscan family and with the Catholic Church by joining the prayer of Pope Francis for peace on Ash Wednesday,” he said.
“Peace is not a ceasefire. Peace is not a silence of arms. Peace is a gift of God. As such it is given by God for free, but we have to be active to have it,” the general minister said. Read the complete text of his call for prayer.
