A Message From the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church:
‘It Is Indeed a Great Loss’

Following the recent death of Cardinal Lubomyr Husar, we received this week a note from Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church:

Dear Msgr. John Kozar:

I would like to express my sincere words of gratitude for your letter of condolences on the occasion of the passing into eternity of His Beatitude Lubomyr Husar, Major Archbishop emeritus of Kiev-Halych.

We comprehend your kind words, which are full of admiration for the life and service of the deceased, as a sign of sincere gratitude to the good Lord for the gift of life of our venerable predecessor.

It is indeed a great loss for our church and nation, but we nourish hope that now we have a great intercessor who prays for all of us at the heavenly altar.

May the memory of His Beatitude Lubomyr be eternal and may his spiritual testament expressed in the words “pray and work” become the program of life of each one of us.

With gratitude and prayer,
+ Sviatoslav
