 The volunteer movement is nothing but active love. Patriarch Svyatoslav (Shevchuk) of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church said this congratulating the participants of the expanded meeting of the Coordinating Council of Volunteers of the National Forum ‘Transformation of Ukraine’ on the Day of Ukrainian Volunteers, the UGCC Information Department reports.

‘The volunteer movement is nothing but active love. This is love for what is most expensive. And we know that only such, true love generates heroes,” said the first hierarch.

The head of the UGCC assured volunteers of church respect and gratitude and active support. He also put the sign of equality between a good Christian and a volunteer.

“This means that a Christian loves God and his neighbor not through external coercion, but by the call of the heart. Therefore, we can say that a Christian is always a volunteer,” said His Beatitude Sviatoslav.

An expanded meeting of the Coordinating Council for Volunteers within the framework of the National Forum "Transformation of Ukraine" was held for the first time. During the meeting, Patriarch Sviatoslav awarded distinguished volunteers and philanthropists: Igor Kravchenko, Taras Kernytsky, Maxim Shvets, Lyudmila Demyanyk and Oleksandr Biletsky with Patriarchal Diplomas.

      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
