“If we remember not only the person of His Beatitude Lubomyr Husar, but above all everything he gave us, then this memory will be life-giving. We will remember him through our way of life, our attitude toward ourselves and our neighbor,” said His Beatitude Sviatoslav, Head and Father of the UGCC, on Friday, May 31, 2019, during the memorial service on the occasion of the second anniversary of the repose of the light memory His Beatitude Lubomyr Husar.
The liturgy took place in Lviv, in the temple of the Annunciation, in the Patriarchal House.
According to the Primate, experiencing such a moment of memory, three concepts fall into thought: memory, gratitude, and prayer. The Head of the Church believes that we should remember what Beatitude Lubomyr taught us and try to live by it.
“I think that we all knew our Beatitude Lubomyr when we collaborated with him, that certain features of his character, attitude, even humor, continue to live in us in one way or another,” the bishop said.
He also added that His Beatitude Lubomyr taught never to condemn either ourselves or our neighbor. Moreover, he lived in prayer and always was a positive person. Therefore, we must be thankful to God for the gift of his life and to His Beatitude Lubomyr for all that he gave us.
“Today we pray for his eternal rest, for this is what he needs most now, and we ask him to pray for us, for his Church, state and people before the throne of God,” said His Beatitude Sviatoslav.
