Andrey Sheptytsky and Josyf Slipyj

Fr. Thomas J. Loya's  interview with Right Rev. Dr. Andriy Chirovsky on the November 12, 2006 broadcast of Light of the East has really captured my imagination. So much so, that I bought the books Pray for God's Wisdom: The Mystical Sophiology of Metropolitan Andrey Sheptystky by Fr. Chirovsky and Christian social Ethics in Ukraine: The Legacy of Andrei Sheptytsky by Andrii Krawchuk from the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Christian Studies at Saint Paul University.

I particularly enjoy the little story about Fr. Chirovsky and his grandmother praying for Archbishop Slipyj.
