Ukraine’s military has helped save nation from slavery, says prelate

Catholic World News - July 15, 2014

The Ukrainian Greek Catholic archbishop of Lviv has offered strong praise for the nation’s military.

“I’m watching enthusiastically how you, the younger generation of Ukrainians, have become a real rock for all of our people that will not be broken by fear, intimidation, and threats,” Archbishop Ihor Voznyak wrote in a recent letter, as quoted by the Religious Information Service of Ukraine. “Thank you for your brave heart, full of God’s tenderness and desire for peace, which was not poisoned with hatred either by ill-treatment or alien villains.”

“I believe that your action will show everyone that the people of Ukraine rose from their knees and will never allow shackling them as slaves,” he added. “And you, having followed Christ, will overcome aggression and rage for the sake of freedom and moral values which are the foundation of our common invincible future.”
