‘The bad news taking place in our world is not just some random, haphazard mayhem’
The events in the daily news can be catastrophic and unnerving at times, with huge numbers of lives lost and incredible suffering taking place, as is evident by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“In Ukraine, rivers of blood and tears are flowing,” said Pope Francis. “This is not just a military operation but a war which sows death, destruction and misery.”
But is there something unseen at work amid the horror of this war? Is there a hidden cause for nightmarish disasters that people are forgetting or ignoring?
