His Beatitude: May the Lord fill the hearts of those who kill us with love
The Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church urged the faithful to pray for their enemies.
"We pray that the Lord fills the hearts of all people with love and especially those who are killing our people today, destroying our cities, and villages, that they remember that God put us on earth not to kill each other, to take away each other's things we like, but to live in peace, in love to God and to each other," the Archbishop said.
The Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, blessing the faithful, offered prayers that the Lord through the prayers of the Mother of God would grant peace to the Ukrainian land.
On 25 September 2022, His Beatitude celebrated the Divine Liturgy at the Annunciation Church in Kyiv.
