Prayers for the Ukraine

As I have noted before, I generally avoid the news and so tend to be (blissfully?) ignorant of a lot of the stuff that’s going on around the world. But I have gotten some blips on the radar about the terrible things happening in the Ukraine.

Elizabeth Scalia has a very good post here that deals with various topics, from the role of priests in the protests to the totalitarian use of technology.

Cardinal Dolan expressed is support for the ‘Maidan’ movement on his blog yesterday.

Archbishop Gullickson, Apostolic Nuncio to Ukraine, has posted a few things on his blog, but his Twitter feed is especially active with all the latest news (in various languages).

A photo is worth a thousand words, but I think this photo is worth a lot more:

    This seems like a good thing to keep in my heart at Adoration.

    I heard a talk a few years ago by Fr. John McDonald in which he recollected his visit to Ukraine. At the time of his visit, there were still people living there who survived the Communists’ persecution of Christians. The story of their enduring love for the Faith I believe would rekindle among Christians – especially the Orthodox and Catholics – an increased appreciation for the freedom of religion we have in the US.
