      Orthodox Brotherhoods Suggest Ukrainian Greek Catholics Give Turin Shroud Copy

      30.01.2006, [17:31] // Orthodox //

      Kyiv – The Union of Orthodox Brotherhoods of Ukraine (UOBU) has addressed
      representatives of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church with the request to
      make the Ukrainian copy of the Shroud of Turin a gift for the Orthodox.
      Only in this case, reads the UOBU’s address, will the Orthodox of the
      Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate allow the relic inside St.
      Sophia’s Cathedral in Kyiv. sedmica.orthodoxy.ru posted the news on 26
      January 2006.

      RISU note: Three national deputies in Ukraine’s Parliament, members of the
      Ukrainian Society of the Shroud of Turin, came up with the idea of placing
      the copy of the shroud in St. Sophia’s Cathedral in Kyiv for veneration on
      22 January. As St. Sophia’s is now a museum, not belonging to any
      denomination, it was considered that this would be a good place for joint
      Christian prayer. However, in the face of potential protests from the Union
      of Orthodox Citizens of Ukraine, the plan was cancelled.
