CWN Editor's Note: Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, met with Pope Francis and leading Vatican officials in his first trip to Rome since the Russian invasion in February.

In an interview with CNA, the prelate took stock of the war and discussed his visit. Pope Francis, he said, “had a paternal warmth towards me that moved me. He assured me that both he and the Holy See are willing to do everything possible to alleviate the pains of the Ukrainian people and end this unjust aggression.”
