The head of the Orhodox Church of Ukraine congratulated the Armed Forces of Ukraine on their professional holiday. On social media, Metropolitan Epifaniy posted warm greetings, expressing words of respect.
“On the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, I congratulate and bless all the men and women who make up our glorious Ukrainian Army with great honor and respect. You are true heroes for all of us, our defenders who demonstrate the greatest sacrificial love taught by our Savior. This is love, where someone sacrifices the most precious thing – their own life – for the sake of protecting their neighbors.
By defending our Motherland at the front, you bring victory closer – the victory of truth, justice, courage, indomitability, and spiritual strength. You have already proved it not only to us, but also to the whole world, and you continue to prove it every day, every minute. I believe, support, and pray for each of you.
God’s blessing to you, strength, power, fortitude and the great Ukrainian Victory as soon as possible!” wrote the Head of the OCU.
