Ukraine Archbishop says " is so important today to hear the voice of crying of Ukrainian children, women, families…"

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ!
Today is May 11, 2022, and Ukraine is going through the 77th day of Russian aggression, a full-scale Russian war against Ukraine.
Ukraine continues to bleed ... Rivers of tears flow through our Motherland… The sea of ​​pain, grief-crying, probably reaches the heavens ...
Active hostilities are taking place in the east of our Ukraine. From what we hear, the enemy is relentlessly trying to invade our lands, storming our cities and villages. He is constantly flooding our land with fire, firing from all kinds of weapons that man possesses today. He is trying to destroy our cities and villages with air bombs. The artillery is constantly working.
But our defenders courageously defend the Motherland.  
 That is why we say that Ukraine stands. Ukraine is struggling. Ukraine defends its dignity and its right to exist.
There has been a lot of grief in Ukraine over the last day. The full-fledged process of evacuating people from the war zone has become almost impossible. Even more, the enemy is deliberately shelling those small roads of life by which people can still escape from Russian bombs and shells. That is why it is so important today to hear the voice of crying of Ukrainian children, women, families…
Today I want to reflect on another act of charity, which, according to Jesus Christ, a person does personally to Him - to serve the sick.
As it turned out, especially in a pandemic, modern humanity is fragile, vulnerable, sensitive to various types of pain. We see that although civilization is evolving, the wounds that man bears on his body and in his soul are very deep.
Being sick during the war is almost a grief and a tragedy. In order to recover, a person must be provided with proper medical care. However, in order to overcome the disease, it is still very important that the patient can be visited, served and thus lift his spirits. So, in order to recover, you need to believe in victory over the disease, that with the help of modern medical art and with the support of good people - a person is able to overcome the disease.
The Ukrainian people are deeply wounded. We may not be fully aware of the deep wounds this war has inflicted on Ukraine's body today. We see our wounded soldiers telling us with their wounds that Ukraine is crying out to God and to the conscience of our neighbor for salvation.
Today I would like to express my gratitude to our doctors who are really showing the peaks of medical art to save lives in Ukraine. Special thanks to those who take care of the sick, care for them, feed them, try to do everything so that a sick person, especially in wartime, does not feel lonely and abandoned.
I beg everyone who hears me to remember: maybe there is a sick person somewhere near you. Serve her, visit her, at least call her, because any attention, support of relatives, acquaintances, relatives, volunteers is extremely necessary for a person to overcome his illness.
We ask You, Lord God, to stop this war so that there are no more wounds, because we believe that only You have the medicine that can heal human wounds.
The Lord God gave the Church the Holy Sacrament of God's mercy for the sick - the Anointing. When someone in your family or loved ones falls ill, call a priest and the prayer of the Church will save the sick. According to the ancient tradition described in the sacred tradition of the Old Testament, in case of illness, church elders were called, who laid their hands, prayed over the sick person and anointed him with holy oil.
God bless Ukraine! God bless the Ukrainian army! God, grant victory to the Ukrainian people! God, You who come to us today in the face of the sick, who is near today, give us the strength to see You in him and to serve You properly!
The blessing of the Lord be upon you, with His grace and love of man, always, now, and forever and ever. Amen.
Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
