Ukrainian Catholic bishop
- If we follow Jesus’s thinking, spirit and deeds in our life. We can defeat the spreading of hatred, if we stop it in ourselves and instead recall the teaching of Jesus about the love to enemies. The peace, for which we have been praying for months so eagerly, first of all has to be born in ourselves. Then it can spread in the society – maybe not today, not nowadays, but in the future. The hatred kept in human heart leads to war, and this can not be prevented even by the world’s all peace treaties, which can just hold it in check for a while.
