CWN Editor's Note: “Let me heartily congratulate our Orthodox brethren on the Unity Council,” said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. “At this historic moment, I want to extend the fraternal hand on behalf of our Church to the newly elected Primate and all the Orthodox brethren, saying that from now on we go together in history, to unity, to the truth. Because the future of the Church, the people and the Ukrainian free, independent, European state depends on how we today nurture unity and overcome what separates us.”
