Avvenire: “Stop the mad rush for the irreparable”
“The dramatic escalation of the nuclear and energy tensions between Russia and the West with unbridled accusations and threats, the call to arms of hundreds of thousands of Russian reservists and last but not least the discourse on the purity of moral and national values with which Putin accompanied the declaration of the annexation and the line of conflict with the West overall confirmed. Everything seems aimed at rendering incurable and even apocalyptic the ongoing war and imperial confrontation that the man in the Kremlin and some of his western neighbors are masquerading as a clash of civilisations. The director writes it in Avvenire today Marco Tarquinioin the column of responses to readers.
“Granting and not acknowledging that there has ever been a ‘just war’, today’s war, wherever and by whomever it is waged, is infinitely unjust to consciousness and the weapons at our disposal – he continues –. From a Christian perspective, it is an appalling blasphemy that betrays and radically denies the gospel of Christ and God’s plan for mankind.” The editor of the Episcopal Newspaper emphasizes that “war destroys, not builds; it sows sorrow and resentment, it does not do justice; it breaks life, it protects nothing good”. War “is always skilland, and it is always performed on the skin of the poor”.
“Therefore – notes Tarquinius – it makes one tremble with pain and indignation, it literally sends shudders down Christians in particular, but not only them, that the Orthodox Patriarch of Moscow, like every propagandist of Islamic terrorism, even repeats the ‘promise’ hat of paradise ‘for the ‘heroes’ who shall fall in battle”. “Let us offer up and pray – he concludes – also this Sunday, so that all men and women of faith and goodwill may add their voice to the voice of Pope Francis in plea for peace from God and those who have the power and duty here and now to stop the mad rush towards the irretrievable”.
