On May 11, Patriarch Svyatoslav of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church visited schoolchildren of Our Ukrainian School in Philadelphia, PA (USA). The Primate had separate meetings with older high school students, with junior students, and with students of middle school age. The First Hierarch encouraged young Ukrainians to keep alive their language and culture, regardless of where they are.

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

“The Almighty loves us and wants good for us. Therefore, it is so important that everything that we learn at school, in particular through the study of our own personal roots, was nothing but a way to a personal encounter with our Heavenly Father. As you find Him, you will find everything, and if you do not, you will lose everything you now have. Therefore, I encourage you to dearly love your tradition, culture, language, as well as to discover and love the greatest treasure that our people possess – this is our Christian faith,” the spiritual leader of the Greek Catholics said turning to older students.

The Patriarch of the UGCC stressed that our “standing point” is, first of all, the Lord, for it is always possible to rely on Him, especially in the fleeting modern world.

As RISU has reported, Patriarch Sviatoslav of the UGCC began his official visit to the United States on May 8.

On May 9, at 19.00, the Ukrainian Educational and Cultural Center in Philadelphia hosted a presentation of his book Dialogue Heals Wounds.

On May 10, 2019, the Father and the Head of the UGCC, His Beatitude Sviatoslav met with graduates of Our Ukrainian Native School, and also visited the General House of the Basilian Sisters in the USA.

On May 11, at the Ukrainian Educational and Cultural Center in Jenkintown, Patriarch Sviatoslav took part in celebrations on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of the United States St. Sophia Society.

      Ну що ж: та штучна ізоляція (невизнання) ПЦУ у світовому православ'ї, що її цинічно й зухвало інспірував, тиснув і нагнітав (відповідні страшилки-жахалки) МП, по суті, подолана. Принаймні, успішний

      Водночас, як каже і акцентує Святе Письмо, це саме Господь "змінює часи і літа, СКИДАЄ ЦАРІВ і ПОСТАВЛЯЄ ЦАРІВ; дає мудрість мудрим і розуміння розумним" (Дан.2:21). ----- А ось щодо декого

      Разом з тим не все тут так просто й однозначно. Скажімо, дуже цікавим і дивовижним виглядає тут отакий збіг певних подій та обставин. Включаючи календарно-числові. Й конкретно. ----------- Як відомо,
