CWN Editor's Note: Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, said on October 2 that “human blood is pouring out” after “the enemy massively attacked Zaporizhzhia and its surroundings.”

“We know—we have emphasized and mentioned this more than once—that love creates heroes,” he continued. “This is true Christian love, which flows from the precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord.”

“Today, there are no rear areas in Ukraine,” the prelate added. “Each of us must stand on the front in defense of everything we love so much, everything we call native, in defense of Ukraine. And when we truly love, then we will persevere, we will find the strength not to stop.”
