Ukraine’s churches unite in supporting demonstrators

Catholic World News - February 14, 2014

To the surprise of some, Ukraine’s three major Christian bodies – the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate), and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyivan Patriarchate – have united in support of anti-government protestors, AsiaNews reported.

“Even the historically more conservative Orthodox monks under the jurisdiction of the Patriarchate of Moscow took to the streets to pray,” the report noted. “Tents have been set up on the Maidan Square (the main square of Kiev and the theater of its biggest protests) where the different denominations take turns in celebrating Mass, at the request of the protesters themselves.”
