Pilgrimage of the Mukachevo Eparchy faithful to the Vatican

Over 400 pilgrims from Transcarpathia visited Rome and Vatican City in Italy from December 11 - 18, 2011. In 2011, our Mukachevo Eparchy celebrated a chain of jubilees related to the Blessed Martyr Theodore Romzha: the 100th year of his birth; the 75th year of his priestly ordination and the 10th year of his beatification. For that reason among many others, a pilgrimage to Rome was planned, where also 75 years ago Blessed Theodore was ordained as a priest. And God made it happen so that exactly this year, in 2011, and not in 2012 as was earlier planned, the Christmas tree for Saint Peter's Square was chosen from Theodore’s native Transcarpathia.

Goriany Rotunda became a Marian pilgrimage place

June 23rd 2012. Third Saturday after Petecost, Deposition of the Cincture of the Mother of God. In the morning to the Holy Cross Cathedral in Uzhgorod accompanied by bells was solemnly carried in a copy of the Miraculous Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos of the Papal Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore, which was blessed by the Holy Father Benedict XVI. During the day, the clergy and faithful of the parishes in Uzhgorod came to ask for intercession of the Mother of God. Until the late evening the doors of the Cathedral were open to everyone who wished to pray in front of the icon.

June 24th 2012. Third Sunday after Pentecost. When at six o’clock in the morning the door opened, the Cathedral was filled to the brim with people that came for the Holy Liturgy and to pray in front of the icon.
At ten o’clock Holy Cross Cathedral bells ringing accompanied the icon of the Most Holy Theotokos to the place of its permanent residence – Goriany Rotunda of the Holy Protection. The solemn procession was led by Bishop Milan Šašik CM, Bishop Ireney (Bilyk) OSBM, Canon of the Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore and Bishop Fausto Tardelli of San Miniato (Italy). Children and youth were scattering before the icon fragrant roses petals. Many people were watching this beautiful procession by the streets of Uzhgorod with a prayer on their lips and with tears. The number of people from all over the city and the Eparchy was constantly increasing, so that upon arrival to Goriany Rotunda there were already few thousands of pilgrims.

In the micro district Goriany the procession joined His Excellency Apostolic Nuncio in Ukraine, Archbishop Edward Thomas Gullickson. At the Rotunda parish administrator Father Mykhailo Solyanyk with his parishioners welcomed the bishops and pilgrims. The procession ended with Hierarchical Divine Liturgy in the Goriany Rotunda – the oldest church of our region, where the icon was placed. Together with bishops the Liturgy concelebrated 23 priests.

After the Divine Liturgy there was announced the Decree of spiritual kinship of Goriany Rotunda with Papal Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore. From now Goriany Rotunda of the Holy Protection is a Marian pilgrimage place endowed with great spiritual indulgences.
