Vatican City, 1 April 2013 (VIS) - Today the Holy Father elevated the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church from Major Archepiscopate to Patriarchate.  He cited the size, organization, and world-wide presence of the Ukainian Catholic Church, as well as his personal frienship with Patriarch Sviatoslav, as deciding factors in his decision to raise the rank of this Eastern Catholic Church.

I like the "friendship" line.  What are friends for if not for help?

Beat you to it!  Cool (Well, I guess I may have cheated a little. :blush:)

I hope he railroads the granting of Patriarchal status to the UGCC.

At the beginning of next month, Pope Francis is going to proclaim a Ukrainian Patriarchate and an SSPX Patriarchate.
