The memory of the meeting with the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic bishops who recently gathered in Rome for the Synod is still vivid in my mind.
I am grateful to you for the attentive and mutual listening and for the fraternal and sincere dialogue that evolved in a true spirit of conciliarity.
While invoking peace for beloved Ukraine, I impart my blessing to the bishops of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church and to all the faithful entrusted to your pastoral care, and I ask you not to forget to pray for me.”
