After living 84 years, many of them dedicated to demanding and tireless work, His Beatitude Lubomyr Cardinal Husar, Major Archbishop Emeritus of Kyiv-Halyc. in the UGCC entered the heavenly kingdom for his eternal reward. He was a wise Father, who appealed to the conscious of Ukrainians, as well as others, sharing deep wisdom and always bringing and instilling a spirit of peace.
With the passing of His Beatitude Lubomyr, the faithful of the UGCC experience the profound loss of having him in their midst, listening to his thoughtful, yet, simple words which always touched the depths of one’s heart; however, they have gained a heavenly intercessor to Our Lord during these turbulent times.
We are grateful to God for the gift of His Beatitude Lubomyr to the Catholic Church and for his ministering alongside the Sisters of the Order of Saint Basil the Great in God’s vineyard and for always sharing his Fatherly advice and generous blessings.
May Our Lord welcome the soul of his loyal servant, granting him eternal rest and including him among the God’s Chosen in the Heavenly Kingdom.
