CWN Editor's Note: Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, has been under attack by Russian forces since the war began.

“As long as there are believers in the city, I will remain with them,” said Bishop Pavlo Honcharuk, 44, who was appointed the Latin-rite bishop there in 2020. “God, and my faith, give me the strength for this. We – the priests – are not armed. We are men of the Church. Our weapons are the Word of God, and prayer.”
