“I would like to talk about whether a Christian has the right to evaluate the significance of saints according to their nationality. In Holy Scripture it is written very plainly that in the Kingdom of Heaven, there is no separation into nations, races, or ethnicity. The Savior teaches us that for God, the only significant thing is the state of a person’s heart.”
(Metropolitan Luke (Kovalenko) of Zaporozhye, ‘Wartime Notes’)
