Earlier this week, His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry of Kiev and All Ukraine, the primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, called upon every diocese of the UOC to actively participate in measures to help counteract the spread of the coronavirus, providing material assistance to the medical institutions in their respective areas.

Now he is calling upon all the Church’s monasteries to participate as well.

In a circular sent to all diocesan hierarchs yesterday, March 25, His Beatitude blessed all monasteries of the UOC to prepare their premises for the possible reception of coronavirus patients, reports the Information-Education Department of the Ukrainian Church.

“In the event of a critical deterioration of the situation with the spread of coronavirus infection, in which medical institutions will not be able to hospitalize all those infected, the monasteries of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church should be ready to receive as many patients as possible,” the statement reads.

Additionally, with the blessing of Met. Onuphry, petitions for medical workers will also be added to the Litany of Fervent Supplication at the Divine Liturgy in UOC churches and monasteries during the quarantine.

Dear souls, I got a voice message from a Romanian lady who recovered from rhe coronavirus. This is how : Boil water for about 10 minutes. Put salt in the water and inhale these steams deeply in the lungs, as hot as you can, as long as you can. Repeat this, with breaks. The virus will die ! May God save you all ! Mircea
