Archbishop Vsevolod has leukæmia
I met him once nine years ago: a Ukrainian born in Poland with a marvellous bass voice, a gentleman grounded in his tradition and, because he had nothing to prove, utterly devoid of the anti-Westernism that mars so much Orthodox witness. Authentically Catholic.

He has served the Divine Liturgy (celebrated Mass) in the crypt of St Peter’s Basilica.
For travellers by sea, by land, and by air; for the sick and suffering; for captives and their salvation, let us pray to the Lord.

Lord, have mercy.
