The Catholic bishops’ conference of Russia has called on political leaders to end the conflict with Ukraine.
In a Feb. 24 message, the Catholic bishops of five dioceses in Russia warned leaders “that they will have to give a strict account of the military actions they have taken.”
“For the course of centuries to come depends largely on their present decisions,” the bishops said, referencing Lumen gentium, the Second Vatican Council’s Dogmatic Constitution on the Church.
“We call upon all the politicians on whom this decision depends to do decisively everything to end this conflict,” they added.
