Cardinal Krajewski to visit Ukraine for fourth time
By Francesca Merlo
In a statement released by the Holy See on Wednesday, the Vatican announced that Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, Prefect of the new Dicastery for the Service of Charity, will visit Ukraine for the fourth time on behalf of the Holy Father.
During this visit, marking his fourth to the war torn-nation since the Russian invasion over six months ago, he will travel to Odessa, Žytomyr, Kharkiv and other places in eastern Ukraine. He goes to bring closeness and support to various communities of faithful, priests and religious, and their bishops, who for more than 200 days continue to remain in the places of their ministry despite the dangers of war.
The statement describes the cardinal's as "a silent and evangelical journey, to be with the people who are suffering, to pray and comfort each one of them" to show that they are not alone in this situation.
