New Head of the Ukrainian Church

You know you are getting older when policemen look younger, you know you when bishops look so young.
News from Lviv began circulating last night, and this morning it was confirmed: the bishops of the largest Eastern fold in communion with Rome have elected the youngest of their number -- 40 year-old Sviatoslav Schevchuk, third youngest Catholic Bishop in the world, the apostolic administrator of the UGCC's eparchy in Argentina -- as head of the church.
He is de facto patriarch of the 6 million-member Ukrainian Church
