Enthronement of New Major Archbishop of Kiev-Halych

On 23 March 2011, the 40 bishops of the Ukrainian Catholic Synod elected Sviatoslav Shevchuk as the new Major Archbishop of Kiev-Halych and head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, the largest Eastern Rite Catholic sui juris church, in succession to Cardinal Lubomyr Husar, who retired in February. His election was confirmed by Pope Benedict on 25 March.

Yesterday, the new Major Archbishop was enthroned at Kiev. You can read about it, including a translation of his address at the Divine Liturgy, at Whispers in the Loggia, which also has some video:
