“Every Christian ascends the Golgotha that God has prepared for him, carrying the cross given him by God’s Providence. And in order to not despair, not despond and not fall in spirit, we need to remember only one thing—there, over the horizon of earthly existence, after our sojourn in this sorrowful veil of tears and suffering, waiting for us is the endless joy of God’s love…”

(Metropolitan Luke Kovalenko of Ukraine, ‘Wartime Notes’)
