Papal envoy prays at mass grave in Ukraine

A papal envoy prayed beside a mass grave in Ukraine on Good Friday.

Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, during a visit to a newly liberated area of northern Ukraine, was pictured praying on April 15 at a grave containing 80 bodies.

The Holy See press office said that the papal almoner traveled to Borodianka, a town around 30 miles northwest of the capital Kyiv.

The cardinal said in an audio message shared by the press office: “Here with the nuncio, we are returning now to Kyiv, from these difficult places for every person in the world, where we still found so many dead and a grave of at least 80 people, buried without first name and surname. And the tears are missing, the words are missing.”
