I attended the liturgy and enthronement ceremony in St. Sophia Cathedral of the head of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine Epifaniy.
Congratulations to the metropolitan! Congratulations to all parishioners and all believers with the creation of a local orthodox church. This is a great event, one that the Ukrainian people have been waiting for for several long and difficult centuries.
It is very symbolical that Metropolitan Epifaniy conducted a service today at the grave of the great Patriarch Volodymyr. This was very wise and correct.
We are a great people with a glorious history, and I believe that success and victory is ahead of us.
God, give us the strength, inspiration and faith we need for this!
I believe in Ukraine! I believe in us all!
