Orthodoxy in Ukraine

On the 25th of January the situation in Kiev was very difficult. Over night, clashes with police on Hrushevskoho Street flared at times but both sides held their positions and by 5 a.m. a temporary truce was made. However, the truce did not last long and by 10:30 a.m. fighting broke out. Fires from burning tires stretched 70 meters across the street, and flames five meters high divided the sides. Many people spoke of the possibility of declaring state of emergency.

The same day, members of the All-Ukrainian Council of Churches and Religious Organizations held a meeting with the leaders of the Ukrainian opposition Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Vitali Klitschko and Oleg Tyagnibok. The main mission of the Council was to initiate a peaceful and constructive dialogue between them and the President.

Francis in prayer. Mosaic by Fr. Marko I. Rupnik. SJ.

In his honour we post a parabel on St. Francis and the perfect joy:

On True and Perfect Joy

How St. Francis taught Brother Leo that perfect joy is only in the Cross.

One day at St. Mary, St. Francis called Brother Leo and said: "Brother Leo, write this down."

He answered: "I'm ready."

"Write what true joy is," he said. "A messenger comes and says that all the masters of theology in Paris have joined the Order -- write: that is not true joy. Or all the prelates beyond the mountain -- archbishops and bishops, or the King of France and the King of England -- write: that is not true joy. Or that my friars have gone to the unbelievers and have converted all of them to the faith; or that I have so much grace from God that I heal the sick and I perform many miracles. I tell you that true joy is not in all those things."
