The agreement on the simultaneous Easter celebration with Catholics is real – Father Yatsiv says

The publication Obozrevatel asked the press service of Church UGCC leader, Father Igor Yatsiv about the possibility of simultaneous the Resurrection of Christ celebration by the Catholics and Orthodox.

Father Igor believes that such a question is meaningful and important at the Christmas celebration. However, he considers that the crucial in this aspect is not the question ‘when’ but ‘how’. For a true Christian, said the Father, it is important that the celebration of these days were not simply an event in human history but a real holiday.

For the simultaneous celebration the goodwill is necessary which in Ukraine should be done simultaneously. The conversion of certain confessions to another calendar may create an additional division among the believers, the Head of the UGCC is convinced.
