Today we honour the memory of the holy martyrs, the faithful princes Boris and Gleb, the saints of God, glorified at the very beginning of the heyday of Christianity in our land.

For a thousand years, Christians have revered them as inspirational models, as an example of courageous journey for Christ.

For a thousand years, our Holy Mother Church, using the example of the holy martyrs, has been reminding us how to treat our neighbours, how to correct our lives, how not to fear death, giving your life for love.

Today we praise their feat of faith and ask them prayerfully that all falseness and envy, anger and hatred are eradicated, but true love and brotherly love triumph in Ukraine.

Peace and love to all of us!

Happy Holiday!
