    Church that suffered under Soviets and rebounded loses its ‘sage’

    • May 31, 2017

    Cardinal Lubomyr Husar, the former head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, died on Wednesday at the age of 84 after having inherited a church “on its knees” in the post-Soviet period and leading it through a renaissance. Eerily reminiscent of St. Nicholas, the prototype for Santa Claus, Husar is being remembered as a sage and moral hero.
