Day - 2010!
STATEMENT OF THE COUNCIL OF BISHOPS OF THE UKRAINIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH OF THE USA
“Their memory remains with us from generation unto generation!”
On this Veterans’ Day 2010, the Council of Bishops, clergy and laity of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, express profound gratitude to Ukrainian American Veterans and all those veterans, whose service in the military preserved the foundation of freedom, justice and equality, upon which this country was founded and remains anchored.
Mindful of our Lord’s words, “greater love than this has no man, than to give up his life for His friend” [John 15:13] we prayerfully commend to the loving eternal care of Him Who is our Resurrection, Life and Repose – Christ our true God, the noble souls of those sons and daughters “who feared not the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day” [Psalm 90/91], but sacrificed their lives in the defense of others during the various wars and conflicts, which this God-protected country was compelled to wage.
May their service and sacrifices of love inspire us and generations of Americans of divers heritages to always act as God’s responsible agents of freedom, justice and equality and be courageous in the defense of the God-given rights of others.
May the Lord God accept the service of those living Veterans on His heavenly altar!
May the memory of those who have fallen asleep remain and be cherished from generation unto generation!
Dear brethren: Glory to Jesus Christ!
