Ukrainian Greek Catholic bishops to have private audience with pope Francis in Rome

4 March 2016, 15:27 | Vatican | 4 |   | Code for Blog |  | 

Permanent Synod of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church will hold a meeting with Pope Francis on Saturday, 5 March.


Archbishop-emeritus of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Patriarch Lyubomyr (Husar) made a statement at a briefing while opening of the exhibition "Toward the Light of Resurrection through the thorns of the catacombs", Ukrinform reports.

"Permanent Synod, ie the six bishops who now reside in Rome, tomorrow on Saturday, to meet with the Holy Father" Husar said.

Recall that on February 12 in Cuban capital of Havana the first ever meeting of Pope and Patriarch of Moscow was held, as a result of which the head of the Catholic Church Francis and the Patriarch of Moscow Kirill signed a joint declaration. The themes of the declaration related to the evaluation of the events in Ukraine caused a powerful reaction both in Ukraine and among the Ukrainians in other countries.

    Martin Bramley, 4 March 2016, 19:16: (1) "The Clown of Rome - Francis, has Damaged the Entire Catholic Church", (2) "There SHOULD be a Patriarchate status awarded to the Church"- (1) Unfortunately it seems to be a bitter reality, (2) Patriarchate status is not a solution. The understanding of the reality should be awarded to the Church.

    "Кардинал Гузар впевнений, що єпископи УГКЦ донесуть до Папи свою оцінку Гаванської декларації, отримають від Папи об’єктивну інформацію про цей документ. У результаті зустрічі з Папою, за словами Блаженнішого Любомира, можливо будуть заяви з боку Постійного Синоду УГКЦ" - А яка їхня оцінка, хто знає? - Знову заяви і нашим і вашим, як тут писали в Блозі "крізь дим кубинських сигар"?

      I - as a Latin Rite Catholic Fully Empathise at every level with the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. There SHOULD be a Patriarchate status awarded to the Church. The Clown of Rome - Francis, has Damaged the Entire Catholic Church. Like those scurrilous popes before him, he Thinks MORE about InterFaith relationships - no matter the Price, than about his Own flock, of whatever tradition or rite - eg the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. Moscow - an historical Enemy of Catholicism, whether Latin or Greek in tradition. Moscow must be well Pleased with the Clown of Rome indeed.

    Р. S. А что вот по поводу, скажем, (тех или иных) "нацдвижек" думает и считает Господь Бог? А, может, порой именно через такие события и исполняются на земле воля и планы Божьи? Как это
