Proclamation of the Council of Bishops of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA for the Great and Holy Lent

“Let us observe a fast acceptable and pleasing to the Lord.”

Dearly Beloved Brothers and Sisters – Clergy and Laity - Faithful of our Holy Ukrainian Orthodox Church throughout the World,

CHRIST IS AMONGST US!  IS AND ALWAYS SHALL BE!

As we embark on the sacred journey of Eastern Orthodox Great Lent, let us fast not only from food but from sin and everything that leads us into sinful behavior, belief and deeds; let us fast with love and humility as a means to an end and not an end in itself; let us reflect on the purpose of fasting, as a foundation of our spiritual growth and the desire to become one with God. Drawing inspiration from the Holy Fathers, who remind us of the transformative power of repentance, and Holy Scripture, which guides us on the path of humility, may this Lenten season be a time of profound self-reflection, prayer, and adherence to the teachings of our Holy Orthodox Tradition.
