Pray daily for the Ukrainian army, says Church leader

February 04, 2015

As pro-Russian separatists battle Ukrainian troops for the control of eastern Ukraine, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church called upon the faithful “to become guardian angels who day and night pray for the Ukrainian army.”

“Let us pray for those affected and left without home, for the wounded and those in captivity, who die of hunger and cold,” said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk. “I urge all our Church to relentless prayer for Ukraine.”
