The head of the OPPOSITION BLOC parliamentary faction, Vadym Novinskyi, as a member of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church delegation headed by the UOC Senior manager Metropolitan Boryspilsky and Brovarsky Anthony arrived at the Boryspil airport with Holy Fire for Ukrainians.
“This Divine Holy Fire, which pilgrims from all over the world expected as harbinger of the Resurrection of Christ, we brought from Jerusalem to Kyiv with faith in bright and good things that Ukrainians deserve! In Ukraine now, more than ever, it is necessary to dispel darkness and division in society, restore peace in the East of Ukraine! May this fire warm our souls and unite the country! Now the Holy Fire brought by us will be delivered from Boryspil to all regional centers of Ukraine to all dioceses,” Vadym Novynskyi said.
Convergence of the Holy Fire takes place in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem at the place where Jesus Christ was crucified, buried, and then resurrected. Orthodox Christians believe that the Holy Fire that comes from the grave of Christ is the flame of the power of the Resurrection.
Vadym Novynskyi wished all Ukrainians on this day to feel love and joy, warmth and power of the Holy Fire with faith in the heart!
“I want to congratulate everyone on this Great holiday, to wish a peaceful sky over your head, peace in your soul and love in your families. May your hearts forever be filled with joy about the Risen Christ!” Vadym Novynskyi addressed to all.
