Many years to Archbishop Cyril Vasil'!

Last month, I mentioned the appointment of Jesuit Father Cyril Vasil' as secretary of the Vatican's Congregation for the Eastern Churches. On Sunday afternoon, the 44-year-old Father Vasil' was raised to the episcopate during a celebration of the Byzantine Divine Liturgy at the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome. Above are some images of the liturgy taken from the website of the Slovak Province of the Society of Jesus ; you can find many more photos of the event in this online gallery (h/t to Josephus Flavius of Byzantine, Texas). May God grant Archbishop Cyril many years. Mnohaja lita! AMDG.
