Met. Anthony about upcoming elections: First of all I call for prayer
If we all pray sincerely and distance from our allegiances, the Lord will help elect someone who will work for the good of our state.
We need the spirit of peace so that the wisdom of God will touch human wisdom, said Metropolitan Anthony (Pakanich) of Borispol and Brovary, the UOC Chancellor, in the commentary to NEWSONE on the upcoming presidential election.
Vladyka emphasized that the UOC always prays for its state, for its authorities and for the army.
“While making our choice in the second round now, I call first of all for prayer. Any human deed should not be done in passion, in some malice. We need the spirit of peace so that the wisdom of God will touch human wisdom. And if we sincerely pray for everything, and distance from our allegiances, including political ones, then the Lord will help us choose someone who will work for the good of our state, for the good of every citizen of our country, and, of course, will be the guarantor of stability, including the existence of religious church organizations in our country,” said Metropolitan Anthony.
