On the website of the Vatican there was a message on the election of the Epiphany the head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
The message on the official website of the Vatican on the election of Metropolitan Epiphanios the Primate of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine testifies that the Holy see has recognized her. This statement was made by press Secretary of the DNC Eustratius Zorya in Facebook.
“In fact, it is a sign that in accordance with the order of Ecumenical dialogue with the Orthodox churches, because of the canonical recognition of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the Ukrainian Church and its Metropolitan – the Church is for the Vatican subjectivity”, – he wrote.
According to him, it is “very painful news for the Moscow Patriarchate, and very powerful – the Catholic and the entire Christian world”.
Officially the Catholic Church does not the Church’s act of recognizing a new Church, but the narrative is an argument for those Church structures that are still undecided with the recognition of autocephaly, he added Zorya.
