I was really surprised by his age. I guess the OCA isn't the only group electing a younger leadership. I hope he is what the Ukrainian Catholics need, as they will have him for a very long time.
Would the movie be, "Shoes of the Fisherman"? I really enjoyed that movie. Imagine a Ukrainian as Pope.
Yes it was. Anthony Quinn was the Bishop and it had cold war undertones if I recall.
Although the issues facing the Ukrainian people in Ukraine are very different than those here and in Canada, I hope that a sort of 'detente' among the competing factions can be reached there much as the UOC USA and Canada bishops have reached with the UGCC bishops here and that Metropolitan Nicholas accomplished between his diocese and the BCC.
Unlike the good Bishops of Moscow or Constantinople, our bishops and our peoples have both had to live with and among both Orthodox and Greek Catholics, often in the same town or same family. If we can find ways to better understand each other while not uniting in Communion, others in Orthodoxy (and the Roman Church for that matter) should watch and listen. They might learn something.
