"Axios, Axios, Axios...."
For those of us who don't know Ukrainian, the visuals will have to suffice... and suffice it to say, they do:
Remember, Latin folk, for the world's largest Catholic flock after Rome, what you see above is the astonishing launch of a very significant new era... led by the third-youngest bishop in the global church.
A standard feature of Eastern ordination and installation liturgies, the threefold chants of "Axios" -- "worthy" in Greek -- symbolize the people's approval of the cleric being elevated, and their consent to the proceedings.
Among the other hierarchs in attendance was Ukraine's top Latin-church prelate -- Archbishop Mietek Mokrzycki of Lviv, the longtime deputy private secretary to Pope John Paul II... who, strangely, donned his pallium for the event.
Tip to Rorate.
