A choral and convinced adhesion of the Fondazione Mediterraneo and its president Michele Capasso.
The Pope's call to pray for peace in Ukraine has not gone unheard.  This evening at 7:15 p.m., there will be a video connection from the Museum of Peace with the Holy See's Secretary for Relations with States, Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher, who will preside over a special prayer for Ukraine in the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, together with the Community of Sant'Egidio.
The prayer will also unite the cardinals and bishops gathered in Rome for the Permanent Council of the Italian Bishops' Conference. President Capasso, from the Don Bosco Chapel, announced that the Salesian missionaries inform that, "since the crisis in Ukraine became acute, the young people of the Salesian Oratory in Kiev have gathered in shifts of one hundred at a time for 309 evenings to recite the three Hail Marys and to share a goodnight thought in the style of Don Bosco".
