The Reluctant to Accept and Reluctantly Accepted Bishop

Dr Athanasius McVay at his blog, Annales Ecclesiae Ucrainae, has posted a recent essay on Count Roman Alexander Sheptytsky, better known as Metropolitan Andrei Sheptytsky, the famous leader of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in the late 19th century and early 20th century, at decisive moments for its Catholic identity, the integrity of its distinctive tradition and history, and its life and development in fast-changing and insidious political conditions at the collapse of empire and the rise of the Soviet age.
