Pope encourages Ukrainian Catholics to work 'every day' for Church unity

Catholic World News - November 27, 2013

At the conclusion of his general audience on Wednesday, November 27, Pope Francis offered a special greeting to pilgrims from Ukraine, who were in Rome for the conclusion of the Year of Faith.

The Pope reminded the Ukrainians—who were led by Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevhuk of Kiev—of the need “to commit ourselves every day to communion with our brothers.” The Byzantine-rite Ukrainian Catholic Church has the dual challenge of preserving close ties with Latin-rite Catholics and with the splintered Orthodox community of Ukraine.
