Primate of the UOC told what everyone can do to overcome the schism

Unity within the Church can be achieved if everyone takes care of their own personal salvation. His Beatitude Metropolitan Onufry of Kiev and All Ukraine said this, Phrase writes.

To the question “What factors are needed to overcome the split?” The primate replied: “The Lord Himself wanted everyone to be united, but this did not happen. We are such stubborn people. And my desire is that all be one, but the unity must be in Christ. If it is not in Christ, but on some other foundations, then whatever they may be, there will be no unity.”

At the same time, according to him, true unity is easy to destroy, but very difficult to restore.

As Metropolitan Onufry noted, unity within the church fence can be achieved if everyone takes care of their personal salvation. “I think that in order for unity to be restored, everyone should take care of their own personal salvation. Then, perhaps, this idea (the idea of ​​restoring unity. — Ed.) will be implemented to the maximum. But to think that everyone will unite is a utopia. The maximum unification can be when the largest number of people will join Christ. And this is possible only on the condition that each of us first of all takes care of his own salvation,” said the Primate.
