PRESS RELEASE

Metropolitan Constantine on the Mend!

Metropolitan Constantine, the Primate of our Holy Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA underwent a medical procedure on 1 July, which required surgery.  The procedure was successful and the Metropolitan will remain in hospital for a few days of recovery.  In a telephone conversation late in the day, he was well enough to joke – always a good sign.  We ask that all of our faithful pray for a continued speedy recovery and that our clergy include a special petition for Metropolitan Constantine's good health at this Sunday's Divine Liturgy.

Lord, have mercy and grant a speedy and full recovery!


Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. -- Douglas Adams
