At the invitation of the Sant'Egidio Community, in the Latin Catholic cathedral of St. Alexander in Kiev Orthodox, Roman Catholics, Greek-Catholics and Lutherans gathered to pray together for peace in Ukraine and in the world.
"We are the salt of the earth in this world - Father Georgy Kovalenko, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, said in his sermon - we are called to put ourselves among the people that start to hate, so that they can reach out to one another".
Youth, old people, families and nuns joined the prayer for peace.
In the days of clashes that hit Kiev in February, the cathedral of St. Alexander, as well as other churches belonging to different Christian denominations in the city, became a hospital for the wounded in Majdan.
