Holy Father presented with an icon by Oleksandr Klymenko

On behalf of five bishops of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia visiting the Vatican on ad limina apostolorum presented Pope Francis with an icon of Saint Apostle Peter by Oleksandr Klymenko. Participants in the meeting with the Pope included Archbishop and Metropolitan of Philadelphia Borys Gudziak; Bishop Pavlo Khomnytsky (Stamford, CT); Bishop Bohdan Danylo (Parma, OH); Bishop Venedikt Aleksiychuk (Chicago, IL); and Andriy Rabiy, Auxiliary Bishop of the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia.

The icon given to the Roman Pontiff was painted on camouflage fabric on an AKM ammunition box board brought from the combat area in Eastern Ukraine under “Icons on Ammo Boxes,” a joint project of Sophia Atlantova and Oleksandr Klymenko with the PFVMH.
