Roman Catholic prelate backs Ukrainian protestors

Catholic World News - February 17, 2014

Ukraine’s leading Roman Catholic prelate has joined his Eastern Catholic and Orthodox counterparts in expressing support for anti-government protestors in Ukraine.

“The Roman Catholic Church in Ukraine, like other churches in Ukraine, expresses its support” for the protestors, said Archbishop Mieczyslaw Mokrzycki of Lviv, according to a report by the Religious Information Service of Ukraine.

“The faithful of the Roman Catholic Church are also taking part in the demonstrations on the Maidan,” he added. “They are accompanied by priests, in order to create an atmosphere of solidarity, peace, and respect.”

Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the leader of the Byzantine-rite Ukrainian Catholic Church, had previously expressed his sympathy for the demonstrators.
