Vladyka Daniel spoke of the struggle for peace across the world and asked for everyone to continue to strive for it. “Your presence in this chapel as relatives, neighbors, friends is a true indication of your commitment to do your part to bring about peace not only in Ukraine, but in the world, in the hearts of our neighbors, and within ourselves, remembering the beautiful words of Our Lord: ‘Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God,’” he said.
With the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Antony, the Consistory of the UOC of the USA has issued an URGENT appeal to the faithful and the parish communities of the Church to contribute funds in support of peaceful demonstrators and those that are wounded and in need of urgent medical assistance.
“We join the religious communities of Ukraine and support with all people of good will prayer and fasting for peace in our ancestral homeland,” Bishop Daniel said, “We ask the intercession of the Birth-Giver of God for our ancestral homeland and for the people of Ukraine throughout the world.”
