Day of Prayer and Fasting for Peace--CN/5/007/2022


Chancery Notice

Day of Prayer and Fasting for Peace


In response to Pope Francis’ appeal concerning the situation in Ukraine, Bishop Stephen LEE has instructed all parishes to arrange a one-hour public Eucharistic adoration on 2nd March (Ash Wednesday) to pray for the intention of peace. Parishioners are asked to take note of the details released by their parishes. It is also the Church’s established day of penance and Catholics of the required age are obligated to observe fasting and abstinence.

Pope Francis said: “Jesus taught us that the diabolical senselessness of violence is answered with God’s weapons, with prayer and fasting. I invite everyone to make next 2nd March, Ash Wednesday, a Day of Fasting for Peace. I encourage believers in a special way to dedicate themselves intensely to prayer and fasting on that day. May the Queen of Peace preserve the world from the madness of war.” (Vatican News)


Given at the Chancery Office, Macau, 25th February 2022.
