This put me mind of one of Jesus' more opaque sayings:
From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent are taking it by force. All the prophets and the law prophesied up to the time of John. And if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah, the one who is to come. Whoever has ears ought to hear (Matt 11:12-15)
It bears noting that in his weekly Sunday address, the Holy Father had been appealing for peace in Ukraine, where at least one protestor, twenty-five year-old Mikhail Zhiznevsky,has been killed.
