Pope’s Address to Ukranian Greek-Catholic Pilgrims

A Divine Liturgy was held on Monday at the Altar of the Confession of the Vatican Basilica, in honor of Saint Josaphat, Bishop and Martyr, whose relicts were placed exactly fifty years ago under the altar of Saint Basil the Great. The Divine Liturgy was presided over by Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, Prefect of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches, together with the Major Archbishop of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church, His Beatitude Sviatoslav Shevchuk. Concelebrating were the Bishops of the Synod of the Ukrainian Greco-Catholic Church, who are accompanying the pilgrimage made up of some 3,000 faithful from Ukraine and Byelorussia.
