Protopriest Nicholas Bobik, a clergyman of the Lviv Metropolis of the Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Ukraine, recently visited Metropolitan Joel of Edessa.
Metropolitan Joel received the Ukrainian clergyman with much love and expressed his support and prayers for the Ukrainian people suffering from the unjust and criminal Russian attack.
In fact, Metropolitan Joel offered to Fr. Nicholas Bobik a Holy Cross for the chest as well as a fragment of the Holy Relic of St. Kallinikos, Metropolitan of Edessa, recently canonized by the Ecumenical Patriarchate, which from now on will be deposited in the Holy Church of Our Lady of Gorgoepikoos in Lviv, where Fr. Nicholas is serving as a proistamenos.
