Head of the UGCC: The Revolution of Dignity was a turning point in the affirmation of dignity
The Primate noted that Archangel Michael is a special patron of our capital - the city of Kyiv, a special patron of our army as well. "The heavenly army takes care of the Ukrainian army, which protects the peace, prosperity, freedom, and independence of our country," he said.
His Beatitude Sviatoslav also noted that today we celebrate a special holiday - the Day of Dignity and Freedom. "Today we look in a special way," he said, "at the Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred, at those who, with their lives and their deaths, witnessed the victory of good over evil."
According to him, the Heavenly Hundred and the Revolution of Dignity became a turning point in the rediscovering of human dignity, the dignity of a citizen of Ukraine and the Ukrainian State.
The Head of the Church believes that the heroes of the Heavenly Hundred have set a certain moral and ethical standard for measuring the good we want to do for our nation, a standard by which we assess the actions of each government operating in Ukraine today.
"Pope Benedict once said that when a person discovers his dignity, it is a revolution," said His Beatitude Sviatoslav.
“Listening today to the good news about the victory of good over evil, about the eternal value of the Revolution of Dignity, about the testimony of the Heavenly Hundred, and, as the Church invites, looking into God's love and God's mercy, we want to rejoice in the Holy Spirit,” he added.
