God will not ask what the Patriarchy was, and will ask about good deeds. So the Ukrainian boxer, the absolute world champion in the first weight category Alexander Usik answered the question about the importance for him personally of the Patriarchate, which belongs to the Church.
Usik said that she went to Church with the kids, and it helps him in education.
“I say this: when we’re finished your existence, every man, because it is a temporary factor on this earth, when we will stand on judgment day, God will not ask what the Patriarchy we went, he would ask, how many good deeds you have done, and whether you loved your neighbor, or Khayal him, envied him,” – said the boxer.

Usik said that he had met with Metropolitan Onufry, they talked. “I had so nice impression about this man. This monk, who is very devoted to God, who prays every day and has dedicated his life to God. Such impressions, I was left very calm,” he said.
We will remind, now in Ukraine awaiting the decision of the Ecumenical Patriarchate on the granting of the Tomos of autocephaly for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Kyiv Patriarchate. In turn, opponents of the Tomos believe that a unified local Church in Ukraine is the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, and for eligible for obtaining autocephaly petition Tomos was supposed to submit its Primate his Beatitude Onufry, however it is not appealed to the Ecumenical Patriarch.
The Orthodox Church claim that the Tomos of autocephaly will not help to overcome the schism in Ukraine, and fear that if the provision can only grow sectarian tension, and frequent religious conflicts, including in property matters.
