The head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church Patriarch Sviatoslav appealed to Ukrainians in a video address regarding the upcoming election of the President of Ukraine.

The spiritual leader of the Greek Catholics drew comparison with the people of Israel and their delivery from the Egyptian captivity. “Getting along this path from slavery to liberty, we, like the Israeli crowds, became ‘marked’ by the blood of hundreds of Heaven's Hundred heroes, their Easter sacrifice. Now we are facing the next stage of our passage – a passage in the desert, but following the road to liberty,” the Head of the Church stressed.

The Primate is confident that our voting during the presidential election is extremely similar to the choice that the Israeli people had to make near the Mount Sinai: to follow the true, living God, or to follow the golden calf, that is, the imaginary and false god that leads to death.

“I want to appeal to all of you to make this conscious and voluntary choice with great responsibility. I urge everybody: be sure to come to vote and take part in these elections. I also encourage you to go to God's truth, God's commandments, even if this path will be hard, full of various kinds of dangers and trials. Do not choose the one who wants to fulfill our humble human, but sometimes even low, dreams. And let us follow those who lead us in the way of the Commandments of God. I urge all of you to understand that your choice is an important Christian spiritual duty,” said His Beatitude Sviatoslav in his speech to the faithful.

He is convinced that Ukrainians should choose the one who we will be going through to the next stage on the path to liberty.” As the people of Israel were tempted to go back to slavery, back to Egypt, back to the power of Pharaoh, so too are we now hesitating: to go forward or to go back. The call on us that the Lord makes is an appeal to go forward to liberty, to become free and worthy in our Easter procession. May the Lord give us the spiritual path that goes through these elections as a way to peace, truth and true liberty,” the head of the UGCC noted at the end of his appeal.

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