An archbishop urged Polish Catholics to pray and fast Tuesday after protesters disrupted Masses in the wake of a landmark court ruling on abortion.
Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski of Kraków issued the appeal Oct. 27 after demonstrators interrupted Sunday Masses across Poland.
"Since our Master, Jesus Christ, has called for true love of our neighbor, I ask you to pray and fast for the understanding of this truth by all and for peace in our homeland," the archbishop wrote to his flock.
Kraków archdiocese reported that young Catholics stood outside churches amid the protests in an effort to prevent disruption and cleaned up graffiti.
