On August 27, Patriarch of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church Svyatoslav (Shevchuk) blessed the unique complex dubbed Ukrainian Jerusalem at the Marian Spiritual Center of Zarvanytsia. The worship was attended by the Custos of the Holy Land, Frt Francesco Patton, OMF, who brought a stone from the Holy Sepulcher. The holy relics will be built into a copy of the building in Zarvanytsia.

According to the Department of Information of the UGCC, His Beatitude Svyatoslav greeted the assembly of archbishops of the UGCC, led by Archbishop and Metropolitan Vasyl (Semenyuk) of Ternopil and Zboriv, about a hundred priests and a large number of faithful.

At first, everyone attended the Cathedral of the Mother of God of Zarvanytsia where the prayer service to the Holy Theotokos was performed before the wonderworking icon. Then the procession under the majestic sound of the bells took to the top of the hill past the station of the Cross Road, to the place of blessing.

Construction of a unique complex of religious buildings of the Holy Land began in the summer of 2014. During this time, the professionals were able to reproduce a copy of the Holy Sepulcher, the Calvary, the mountain on which Jesus Christ was crucified, the olive garden where Jesus prayed before His arrest, the Stairs of Repentance (Holy Stairs) which Jesus Christ ascended on His way to Pilate’s trial; the pool of Bethesda where He healed the sick, the Lion (Lions) Gate, and the Tower of David.

      А от милосердний і преблагий Господь любить УСІХ людей - і, до того ж, недосконалих і грішних: тобто якраз НІ ЗА ЩО! А просто - як Свої створіння, як Своїх дітей! --------- І нам, християнам,

      за що поважати це шоколадне брехло ? Та й церква ніби як відокремлена від держави!

      що за ідіот. А як Епіфаній молится за Кирилла то що тепер робить?

      Пора объявлять импичмент за грубейшее нарушение 35й статьи Конституции. Кстати, Денисенко должен напрячься - а вдруг Порошенко тоже захочет стать вторым "почетным патриархом". По четным
