KIEV, November 30, 21:33 /ITAR-TASS/. A special prayer for the multiplication of love and eradication of any animosity and hatred will be chanted at liturgies as of December 1 in all the churches and monasteries run by the largest denomination in Ukraine - the Ukrainian Orthodox Church that reports to Moscow Patriarchate, says a statement issued in connection with the latest political developments by His Beatitude Vladimir, the Metropolitan of Kiev and all Ukraine.
“I give my blessing to all the churches and monasteries of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church to chant the prayer for the multiplication of love and eradication of any animosity and hatred as of Sunday, December 1, and on all the days of Christmas fasting /through to January 6, 2014 - Itar-Tass/,” Metropolitan Vladimir said.
“We call on all the clerics and laity of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, regardless of their political convictions, to join ranks in a common prayer for peace, love and concord, for elimination of discords and enmities, for prevention of violence, and for the surmounting of contradictions,” His Beatitude Vladimir said.
He also made an appeal to all political leaders and state officials “who consider themselves to be believers and Christians” to remember Jesus Christ’s postulation that “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand” (Matthew, 12:25).
“It is important to remember that all of us are children of one God and citizens of one country,” Metropolitan Vladimir said. “That is why we must do everything in our power to make the political process stay within the boundaries of the Lord’s Commandments, Christian morality, the Constitutions, and Ukrainian legislation.
