On Saturday, July 11, Bishop Svyatoslav (Shevchuk) served the Hierarchal Liturgy in the pro-cathedral church of Saint Volodymyr, in the city Posadas, Misiones, as part of church feast celebrations. The church was overcrowded with parishioners who arrived to greet their bishop. Bishop Svyatoslav spoke to them in Spanish and presented the figure of Saint Prince Volodymyr, who, as the bishop explained, was opened to the Christian faith through divine beauty. This beauty is reflected today in the churches and divine services of Byzantine tradition churches.
