Meet the cardinal who will barely miss out on the 2013 conclave

The former Church head, who participated in the 2005 conclave, offered praise in the past for Benedict XVI for addressing the persecution of Ukrainian Greek Catholics, a topic that remains very relevant for many Christians today.

CARD. LUBOMYR HUSAR
Major Archbishop Emeritus of Kiev-Galicia

“Not only I personally but our entire group wished to thank the Holy Father, and in his person, his predecessors and his collaborators, for what the Church of Rome has done for our Church especially in the period of our silence, forced silence.”

He served for six years as the Major Archbishop for the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church, the largest of the Eastern Churches in full communion with Rome. During that time, his failing eyesight forced to recite liturgical ceremonies by memory, and ultimately, to resign.

Having stepped down willingly, Cardinal Husar also became the first leader of his Church to witness the installation of his successor. Whether Benedict XVI will follow his example, remains unclear today.
