    Your Eminence,
    I am a Ukrainian Catholic priest and wish to thank you with all my heart for writing this letter. My brother priests (some of whom are good friends of mine) are, as of this writing, on the Maidan risking their lives to be with their people. They know the next 24 hours may be the most brutal of their lives. Yet, receiving support from men such as yourself buoys their spirits.
    You are in my prayers today as I pray for my friends in Kyiv.
    Asking your blessing I remain,
    Sincerely yours in Christ,
    Fr Jason Charron
    Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of St Josaphat in Parma, OH

    I suggest Your Eminence Cardinal Dolan start an FB page specifically dedicated to Ukrainian movement., while a letter is prepared from your office to Secretsry of State Kerry and President Obama, via VP Biden, to seek diplomatic and other support for the movement.
    Pope Francis has established relationship with President Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church. They can do a lot to stop the brutal and barbaric treatment of peaceful prayerful marches.

    Cardinal Dolan: On behalf of all the Ukrainian Catholic faithful of the Eparchy of Stamford, I thank you for your moral and prayerful support for our Church and the people of Ukraine. I am confident that with God’s help and the prayers and resolute action of good people throughout the world, we will live through these dark days and see a better tomorrow.

    Your Eminence Cardinal Dolan,
    While I am only a foreigner living here in Kyiv some 8 years now, I have a great love of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. One of my dearest and closest friends, Father Volodymyr Malchyn, is a Priest in the UGCC and special PR assistant to the Major Archbishop, Sviatoslav Shevchuk. We have written the Holy See through the Secretariat of State asking for the Holy Father to come to Euromaidan, but alas, such events take years. The Nuncio told us that, were it up to Pope Francis himself, he would have been here a month ago to pray with and bless the many UGCC parishioners, and all Ukrainians on this encampment bringing his hopes and prayers for support of a new and free Ukraine for the Ukrainian people. Now we have this superb letter of support from you and I want to thank you and ask that you petition Pope Francis to give some new encouragement to these brave Ukrainian people who are being killed for their belief in a new and democratic Ukraine, free of tyranny and corruption.
    May the Lord continue to bless and anoint you in all that you do in your great service to HIM….
    With my greatest thanks and respect, I remain
    Humbly yours,
    Prof. Eric R. Gilliatt

    Wonderful statement. Now let’s hear an equally forceful condemnation of the Governor and Mayor of New York and their “brutal and nasty” assault on pro-life Christians.

    The Ukrainian community has our prayers. We have been sharing with our Roman Catholic friends here in the Washington DC area. May God’s protection be with you.

    Why should Ukrainian Christians want to move closer to the secularist apostate European Union? Why should we in the US support such a shift? What kind of “religious freedom” does the EU actually offer? The EU is a technocratic arrogant seclarist atheist beast,Ukraine is better off under Russia, at least Russia is Christian.

    The protesters have been anything but peaceful. They have used violence to attack, beat and through Molotov cocktails at police. This is about covetness of Western (immoral) culture. If Ukraine succumbs to tentacles of the EU it will be open to the flood gates of immorality, just like every other European (EX-Catholic I might add) country. Abortion, gay rights, usury, crony capitalism, sex industry, drugs, crime etc. will reign supreme. Industry will be moved to slave labor for profit and jobs will disolve. Christian culture will be destroyed and secular humanism will take over. Once again, the heresy of Americanism blinds those that speak of “human rights”, “religious freedom” “social justice”.
