CWN Editor's Note: In an interview with Vatican News, Archbishop Borys Gudziak, the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Archbishop of Philadelphia, drew a parallel between Catholic social doctrine and Ukraine’s defense against invasion.

“You can see that there’s a fight for Ukrainian dignity,” he said. You can see the great solidarity. You hear that in the humanitarian efforts in the defense of the country.”

“People are working at a grassroots level – subsidiarity means deciding things at the lowest level, which gives everybody a sense of authority and responsibility,” he continued. “And the struggle, the effort, the work, the project needs to be for the common good.”
