On Wednesday, March 2, His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon sent the following letter to His Beatitude Metropolitan Onufriy of Kyiv and all Ukraine.

Your Beatitude, Dear Brother and Concelebrant in the Lord’s Mysteries:

Metropolitans Onufriy and Tikhon at the 18th All-American Council

During this time of unimaginable difficulty, I want to assure you of my prayers for you and for Ukraine. Please know that the Holy Synod, together with the clergy and faithful of the Orthodox Church in America are praying to the Almighty God bring this war to a just and quick end. May he also console the grieving, the wounded, the displaced, and the suffering. May he also keep eternally in his memory all those who have died in this unjust war.

Yours in Christ,
Archbishop of Washington
Metropolitan of All America and Canada
