On the background of the unity of the whole world during the Third World War, which, like the last two, not only affects our country, but also fully unfolds and takes place on our territory, the disunity of Ukrainian churches is particularly contrasting.

With the Moscow Satanate, everything was clear before the war. Their religious beliefs and faith not in God but in the "sacred idea of the Russian world" simply don’t allow them to see the Truth, hear the Word of God and turn to Christ, who alone can heal spiritual wounds and lead to salvation. The idol of the "Russian world" and the god of lies they worship, will not let them go. Even when the churches (temples) occupied by them are bombed by Satanists of their "Russian world", they lie to themselves with the sacred canons created by their god for their own destruction.

Nevertheless, I do not give up hope and pray every hour for the miracle of the unity of other Ukrainian Churches. The reasons for their separation do not lie in their history. Even the annoying and scandalous misunderstanding of the great Christian denominations caused by pride (because division is always a consequence of pride) has already been overcome by the agreement of Patriarch Athenagoras with Pope Paul VI on the day of Saint Ambrose of Milan on December 7, 1965.

The time of ratification of the "dialogue of love" of these two truly holy leaders of the Church has come long time ago, but so far it has been blocked not least by representatives of the Moscow Satanate. Shouldn't we mention the lack of anathematic (and therefore communion) barrier between the Catholic and Orthodox Churches? Wouldn't the dedication of Ukraine to the protection of the Mother of God be much more effective if it was sealed by the Mystery of Love of her Divine Son, performed jointly by the leaders of Ukrainian Churches in St. Sophia, in front of Her icon "Indestructible Wall"? Would not Heavenly Father hear the common prayer of His children for unity, especially now, during the Lent, when we pray the Divine Liturgy of St. Basil the Great, who is saint for both East and West, saying: “And unite all of us, who share in this one bread and cup, with one another into the communion of the one Holy Spirit, and let none of us partake of the holy body and blood of Your Christ unto judgment or condemnation. Instead, may we find mercy and grace with all the saints, who have been well-pleasing to You since time began … end the schisms of the Churches; quench the raging of the nations; speedily put down the uprisings of heresies by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Receive us all into Your kingdom, declaring us to be children of the light and children of the day. Grant us Your peace and Your love, О Lord, our God; for You have given us everything”?

These questions are somewhat rhetorical. And as long as they remain so, I and St. Basil the Great will pray this prayer every hour:

O Lord, Heavenly Father, we ask for Your Wisdom, the One by whom You created the world, by whom You inspired the saints, by whom You unshakably founded Your Church, and whom Your only begotten Son is: the living Word, the true God, eternal Wisdom, the Life, Sanctification, Strength, the true Light, Who is in Your bosom, God and Father, being born of a woman, the holy Mother of God and ever-virgin Mary, being born under the law - was well-pleased to condemn sin in His flesh, so that all who have died in Adam might be given life in Your Christ Himself.

We beseech You, O Heavenly Father, grant us this Wisdom, so that by Its Love, and not by our pride, we may be led to receive the Holy Spirit, and in Him, through Your Christ and in His holy name, before whom every knee bows in heaven, on earth and under the earth, and we bowed our knees, and saying the prayer He taught us, through partaking of His Holy Body and Blood were united into Your One Church - His Immaculate and Holy Body - and so we may glorified You, for our salvation is Your true glory. We ask, we pray and we beseech You, Father, through the Son in the Holy Spirit, both now and ever and for the ages of ages. Amen.
