Speaking at the Third Congress of the Laity of the UGCC, Patriarch Sviatoslav called the participants to lightening the hearts of millions of Ukrainians and invoked them to be active in all aspects of life of the callings of the faithful.


“We see that the political and economic realms of society are most infected with sin. Therefore, it is necessary for our laity to participate in the political and economic life of their state and bring the Spirit of God there, releasing from the chains of slavery before evil. During these days, when I listened to you and communicated with you, I had a feeling that I was listening to the very heartbeat of the Church, and this is not only a beautiful word or metaphor. You came here as representatives of a very broad network of secular communities of our Church. I was thankful to the Lord for giving me such a wonderful Church and such people, as well as for bestowing so many of his gifts on our people,” the Head of the UGCC stressed.

“I have recently returned from the Pontifical Synod and listened to the heart of the Ecumenical Catholic Church for a month. And I would like to tell you that we are the best,” said the head of the UGCC.

He expressed his deep gratitude to all the organizers, delegates for their presence, work and activity, as well as for the warm (cozy) ambience. “The warmth of your hearts is really incredible. Therefore, there is a great mission for you: to warm with your heart and set aflame millions of other hearts in Ukraine,” said the head of the UGCC.

In his view, it is now incredibly important that every Greek-Catholic Ukrainian be an active lay(wo)man and inspire others with enthusiasm.

“Let the proclaimed resolutions turn into a road map of the secular movement, an active laity apostolate in our Church. Do you know what impressions I got from the resolutions?! You know not only what needs to be done, but how to do it, as the content of the proposed resolutions testifies to this,” said the Greek Catholic leader and called on the participants to take active action.

“If every one of you in your place does all that you have expressed as your wishes in the form of these resolutions, be sure, our Church will become a catalyst for colossal transformations not only of the Ukrainian society, but also of the Universal Catholic Church on a global scale,” emphasized His Beatitude Svyatoslav and blessed the participants of the event.

It is reported by the Department of Information of the UGCC.

      В православній церкві України необхідно ввести вікове обмеження для займаної посади. Коли по досягненню певного віку, священослужитель заслужено б йшов на спокій. Тоді б оцього дідуся б і послали на

      Христос застерігав що хто хоче бути першим буде послідний. Як приклад сам мив апостолам (грішникам) ноги.

      Надежды украинцев - иметь законный Патриархат, признанный Матерью-Церковью в Константинополе, а не амбициозные крики: "Я патриарх, и будет только так, как я хочу, а не иначе, а Епифаний пусть
