On April 6, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church renewed the consecration of Ukraine to the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk did so “because of the great
tribulation that all the people and our entire country are experiencing
at this time due to the occupation of part of our land-- a situation
that fills our hearts with anxiety for the future, uncertainty and
fear,” the Religious Information Service of Ukraine (RISU) reported.
