Vatican City, Mar 28, 2022 / 05:35 am
A Vatican cardinal is bringing an ambulance blessed and donated by Pope Francis to the authorities in Lviv, western Ukraine.
Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, who runs the pope’s charitable office, left Rome on Saturday afternoon to drive the ambulance to Ukraine, the Vatican said.
This is the second time that the 58-old Polish cardinal has traveled to Lviv, which is about 45 minutes from the border with Poland, since the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine war on Feb. 24.
The papal almoner returned to Rome on March 12, after spending almost a week in Lviv, where he donated fuel and helped load trucks with supplies to be taken to areas of Ukraine under bombardment.
