St. John Paul said, “It often happens that we face the truth for which we cannot find words”. Today is just such a time. There are not enough words to convey the truth about what is happening before our eyes. We have no words to express our gratitude for kindness and solidarity. But there is only one word – THANK YOU.
This is the word that shows how much we appreciate the donations you made to support the Archdiocese of Lviv in this hard time of the war. I thank you on my own behalf and on the behalf of those who received this help.
May Good God bless you and the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Beautiful Star of Lviv, guide you.
Archbishop Metropolian of Lviv
