Ukraine is important. And so is Russia, too. That which goes on in that part of the world is of great concern to me, as I once lived for a short time in Vladivostok, Russia. In that part of Russia there are many persons of Ukrainian Catholic descent.
I encourage everyone to take a look at this very interesting site by the name of Russkij-Sion: http://ruskij-sion.blogspot.com/. The Catholic Church is international. It is here in the West, but also in the East. There's lots going on so have an interest and be informed. Pray for the Church and Her leadership in these former Soviet countries and know that stat promissa Fides (the promised Faith remains).
