Biagio Conte, at the headquarters of the mission in Palermo, flags of Ukraine and Russia for peace

While Biagio Conte today, August 30, begins the fifth cycle of chemotherapy in day hospital, signs have been placed in the entrances of the four structures of the Mission Hope and Charity in Palermo, depicting the flags of Ukraine and Russia with a dove of peace and with the phrase (in Italian, in Ukrainian, in Russian) “The good God invites us to build Peace ‘”.

The lay missionary, who fights against colon cancer, found the strength to spread a new message against war: “Peace must first be built in one’s heart, in one’s city, in one’s neighborhood, in one’s family and with everyone. peoples. Dear citizens of the whole world and of all peoples, it is precious and very urgent to make a careful and profound reflection: we want and desire peace between Russia and Ukraine. But be careful, we ask and demand peace as soon as possible, but we should first be at peace with ourselves, with our near and far “.

Biagio Conte is going through a period of great difficulty due to the disease that is forcing him to undergo cycles of chemotherapy, interspersed with rest in the Mission’s asylum. “We must reflect and understand that the war is not only between Ukraine and Russia, but for years all peoples have been in conflict in every city, country, homes and families and in every institution, between political authorities and even religious ones. and understand that if we desire peace first we must desire it and build it in our hearts and in the territory and nation to which we belong and then yes, peace will come, in Russia and in Ukraine and in the whole world – he added -. invites everyone to be builders of peace “.
