Homily of His Beatitude Sviatoslav at the Liturgy in the Cathedral of the Resurrection in Ivano-Frankivsk on the first day of the Patriarchal Sobor in Ivano-Frankivsk, August 25, 2015.
"This Divine Liturgy starts our Patriarchal Sobor. Today the Lord called from all over the world all of you to this Sobor. He called whoever he desired to be here. God initiates, God moves, He is the source of our presence here. We came here primarily to be with Him, to let His Spirit to fill us, for without the Holy Spirit there is no Sobor. This Sobor is a blessing and an action of the Holy Spirit."
