A spirit world message.
My brothers and sisters in Russia, my brothers and sisters in Ukraine,
We are one people; we are all children of God.
Let us stretch our hands towards heaven, the heaven that our Creator created at birth, the heaven of love that drives our physical self, every one of us as the spirit of love.
We were born by this light of love, the power of peace – the Almighty Spirit. Forget yourself in service for others; it is the only path to find the peace, the light of God that created you. We are all his servants to love our brothers and sisters.
God did not create borders between people; man did. God created Earth for us to be one family, a peaceful family. A family that cared for each other cared for every child born equal on this fruitful place in the universe.
Let our hands bring joy and happiness, not cruelty and war.
I appeal to the Church, to the religious leaders in Russia and worldwide. Speak aloud, tell the truth. War is blasphemy towards God, the Church, the fundament of our existence, and the spirit of love. The Church is there to bring hope, be in the front seat, and give the message to your leaders that love is the only path – charity to all people for your salvation. God is your light, and God is unconditional love. End this war between Russia and Ukraine.
Bring your troops back, Mr Putin, listen to the light of love that created you, that gave you birth. God condemns wars because God is Peace.
I want to enclose “The Prayer of Peace” of St Francis of Assisi in this appeal for peace in Ukraine;
Lord, make me a channel of your peace –
that where there is hatred, I may bring love;
that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;
that where there is discord, I may bring harmony;
that where there is error, I may bring truth;
that where there is doubt, I may bring faith;
that where there is despair, I may bring hope;
that where there are shadows, I may bring light;
that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.
Lord, grant –
that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;
to understand, than to be understood;
to love, than to be loved.
For it is by forgetting self that one finds.
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.
It is by dying that one awakens to eternal life.
Mother Teresa in Spirit
