KonferenceRISU.jpgThe church and media should develop abilities and patience and become responsible partners, Vice Rector of the Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU) Myroslav Marynovych said during the conference “Church and Information Society” held at UCU on May 4-5.

“It is not easy for the church to live in the modern discourse. The whole history and tradition often urges the church to be over the society and not beside it. Obviously, it is wrong and it should be given up as this process is not harmonious and is often painful. This task is difficult not only for the church but also for the media,” said Myroslav Marynovych.

The scholar noted that with each year, the quality of religious journalism improves.

“Praise God, we have passed the stage in which in the early 90s, a newspaper report read 'Jewish' ordination instead of 'priestly ordination.' Today, the professionalism has improved but it is not enough. One also needs the sense of partnership. In my opinion, one of the manifestations of this partnership is that the media and church together become heralds and preachers of values,” said the vice rector of UCU.

“Values are not only the church’s business, they are also included in the sphere of media, because they themselves suffer from the lack of the values in the society. Therefore, I wish both sides sincere and responsible partnership,” concluded Myroslav Marynovych.

      Це жодна агітація. На Буковині казали :»Мойше герехт, Сури герехт».

      За часів союза, УПЦ підлягала моіковському патріярхату, примусово. Від незалежності УПЦ старалась отримати незалежність від Москви. Тепер, коли Україна має ТОМОС та незалежність то Лавру потрібно

      Последние события показали глубокий кризис РПЦ МП, где только отдельные редкие священнослужители твёрдо исповедуют Православную Веру, как схиигумен отец Сергий Романов, которого сейчас травят
