“This year in particular, as we journey through Holy Week with our Suffering Saviour we are conscious of immense calamity and pain in so many parts of our world - especially in Gaza, Israel and Ukraine - and of the urgent need for an end to violence and war,” said the leader of the Catholic Church in Ireland.

“I invite everyone in Ireland to redouble their prayers and efforts this coming week for peace in our world, including for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza,” said Archbishop Martin.
