We should pray also for those at the frontlines – especially doctors, said the Father and Head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, His Beatitude Sviatoslav, during the Liturgy at the Patriarchal Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ, broadcast online by Zhyve TV.
“’Whoever wants to save his soul will destroy it, and whoever destroys it for Me will save it.’
I want to address these words to our doctors. Yesterday I saw one photo of a doctor with wounds on his forehead and face from wearing a protective mask. Dear healthcare professionals, you are at the forefront today. Your Church is with you,” assured the Head of the UGCC.
As in the time of the Maidan, said the Primate, “if necessary, the whole church space will become hospitals, where we will save human lives with you,” said the Primate.
His Beatitude Sviatoslav also appealed to wealthy people, owners of big, small, and medium businesses. “You probably can’t sleep today because the world economy is entering a recession. Stock markets are falling, money is depreciating … I urge you to invest your money in the best investment – saving and protecting human life. If today you understand your social responsibility, rest assured you will get your interest. These are percentages that no bank and no stock will give. They will give you hope for eternal life and will remain in your hands even after your death,” said the spiritual leader of Ukraine.
