The Head of UOC led services on Sunday of Adoration of Holy Cross

063When addressing the faithful during the Liturgy on the Third Sunday of Great Lent, Adoration of the Holy Cross, His Beatitude Metropolitan Onufriy called for praying so that the Lord would let the brotherhood of the Kyiv Caves Lavra stay in the holy monastery and continue their feat of prayer therein. The Information and Education Department of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church informs about it.

The Primate emphasised that it was our Church that had been building the Kyiv Caves Lavra, as well as re-building it after the closure of the monastery in the XX century.

According to His Beatitude, people who want to take the Lavra away should have built anything of their own.

“I ask you, dear brothers and sisters, to stand up for prayer, to raise our hands and offer up our prayers for our Ukraine, our Motherland, for the authorities, warriors and for all our people, so that the Lord will bless all of us with peace. Pray especially for the brotherhood of the holy monastery, for the Father Superior, so that the Lord will grant them grace to stay in this place and continue their feat here, which people do not see but which brings benefit to all — the feat of praying for their land, for their Motherland, for their people”, the Primate addressed the flock.

His Beatitude also pointed out that the main thing for which the brethren were praying was that the Lord would give the knowledge of the truth to every one of us and lead us to eternal salvation.

“A man leaves everything on earth: a rich man leaves his wealth, and a poor man — his misery. Like we come into the world with nothing, we leave this world with nothing. But there is wealth which is called the Grace of the Holy Spirit and which goes with a man into eternity. And the brotherhood of the holy monastery beg God for that Grace for every one of us”, explained the Primate.

“May the Lord, through prayers of Our Most Blessed Lady Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary, by the power of the Holy and Life-Giving Cross, bless this place, blessed everybody who is here. Through prayers of Saints of the Kyiv Caves, may the Lord preserve this monastery in the truth and help us to spend the days of the Holy and Great Lent worthily, in a feat within our powers, so that we will meet the Great Feast of the Resurrection from the Dead of our Saviour and God Lord Jesus Christ”, wished the Primate at the end of the sermon.

His Beatitude Metropolitan Onufriy also addressed the flock after the divine service.

“May the Lord destroy by the power of the Holy and Life-Giving Cross all force that rises up against God’s truth, and may the Lord bless our land with peace, may the Lord bless every one of you and everybody who is close to you and who is your relative”, said the Archpastor in his speech after the dismissal.
