His Holiness, the Patriarch of Kyiv and All Rus’ - Ukraine of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate Filaret and Archbishop Emeritus of the Greek Catholic Church, Lubomyr Huzar addressed the assembly.

Ukraine is to achieve the public good when citizens of the country are protected. Archbishop of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church Lubomyr (Husar) was reported as saying in the Parliament by Gazeta.ua.

 

“We have learned that political activity - is one of the high sacrificial ministries. The person to whom the people entrust their fate shall be careful when treating their own calling. This person must comprehend that every citizen of the state should feel secure and through joined efforts attain a state called the public good. I think that the experience we gained. And still recruit enrich themselves. So there is real hope that the great thing true. Where each of us will feel happy in their own country, "- said the former head of the UGCC Lubomyr (Husar).

 

After these words, the Cardinal was given a standing ovation by MPs and government members.

 

 

Patriarch Filaret of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Kyiv Patriarchate urged MPs to unity, not to lose again the state.

 

Patriarch Filaret outlined his vision of events, particularly in Parliament. In his opinion, the current Parliament repeats mistakes made 100 years ago. “Repeating is not necessary, because one should not contend for seats in parliament, but must fight for the state, where the Parliament is to operate. And if there is no state, tell me please, in what parliament will you sit?” the Patriarch grew indignant.

 

According to him, we should draw conclusions from the lessons of 100 years ago as statehood was lost because of disunity.

 

“If we do not have unity, we will lose again the state. Today, the key must be the protection of Ukrainian state ... and all the other issues are less significant,” said the Patriarch of the UOC-KP, noting that we should unite around the protection of the state.

 

He also called on all churches in Ukraine to raise joint prayers on April 2.

 

“We are calling on all Churches to perform the prayer in all regional centers, in the first place in Kyiv, for the victory over the aggressor,” he stressed.

 

According to him, in Kyiv the prayer service will be held at 15.00 at St Sofia square on April 2.

    Не існує ніяких "документів". Натомість є історичний факт, що Св. Йосафата вбили т. зв. православні, противники унії з Римо Католицькою Церквою, підбурювані їхніми схизматицькими
