Our Church, our Faithful and our entire Ukrainian People enter into the Great Fast this year with feelings of pain, fear, suffering and trembling hope. We have experienced one of the longest and most terrible winters in the history of our people – a winter in which we profoundly and personally felt the darkness of sin, and we saw evil that garishly expressed itself in our modern history and bore its murderous interior for all to see. Sin, in its ugly, noxious nature, rose up before us.

The Holy Scripture is the Word of God, which is addressed to each person and that is why It is actual at every time and every place. The Holy Scripture is the collection of the books, which were written by holy men under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and which Christ’s Church received and keeps as the Word of God. St. Jerome teaches: "Ignorance of the Scripture is ignorance of Christ”.

Considering the social-political situation in Ukraine, I appeal to all the faithful of the Church and to people of good will to uninterrupted prayer for a better fate for our nation. Please pray that God grants His wisdom to our people in general and to every citizen in particular. Let us pray that He not permit the chains of evil, but through His peace and wisdom free our people from all things that enslave them, and afterwards lay open for them a road into the future.
