Persecuted christians - Conference at the European Parliament about the persecution of Christians in Sub-Saharan Africa (Credit: MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen)

Break the silence on persecuted Christians

MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen held a conference and exhibition at the European Parliament to denounce the silence surrounding the suffering of persecuted Christians worldwide. The EU must take stronger action against violations of freedom of religion, especially in Africa where lives are lost due to this silence.

Romanian Patriarch Daniel called for an immediate end to hostilities in Ukraine, calling them “a war started by Russia against a sovereign and independent state”.

The patriarch stressed that the Romanian Church led by him shares the position of “other important institutions of Romania and the European Union.” In conclusion, Patriarch Daniel prayed for “the protection of the Ukrainian people and the peacemaking wisdom of all responsible political leaders.”

Here is the full text of the application prepared by Dveri:

“The Romanian Orthodox Church, like other important institutions in Romania and the European Union, has marked with the greatest concern the start of the war in Ukraine, a war started by Russia against a sovereign and independent state. We hope that Euro-Atlantic political forces can find a way to a peaceful dialogue for the good of Ukraine and the whole of Europe.

At the same time, we express our full solidarity with the Romanian Orthodox Christians living in Ukraine, as well as our readiness to help them on our own. We pray to the merciful God, Lord of peace, justice and love, to give protection to the Ukrainian people and peacekeeping wisdom to all responsible political leaders. “
