In his sermon His Beatitude Lubomyr, based on the example of the life and activity of Saint Paul the Apostle, talked about the importance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. According to the preacher, on the road to Damascus, the apostle Paul met the Lord and understood that all that Jesus Christ preached is the truth; in fact the Savior confirmed it with His resurrection. «From that minute this man used all his talents to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the saving truth, which originates from the living God, Who even today lives with people. Therefore this resurrection is so important; in fact it shows us the truth of what He preached and, most importantly, it makes us conscious of the permanent presence among us of the Lord God,» His Beatitude Lubomyr said.  (This Ukrainian-language sermon of His Beatitude Lubomyr can be heard at: www.ugcc.org.ua/fileadmin/user_upload/audio/velylden_2009.mp3.
