The Associated Press -Orthodox priests pray as they stand between pro-European Union activists and police lines in central Kiev, Ukraine, early Friday, Jan. 24, 2014. A top Ukrainian opposition leader on Thursday urged protesters to maintain a shaky cease-fire with police after at least two demonstrators were killed in clashes this week, but some in the crowd appeared defiant, jeering and chanting “revolution” and “shame.” (AP Photo/Sergei Grits)

We are called to be peacemakers, and these priests have taken that, and put it into action. These priests are standing between police, and protesters in Ukraine. In a world where so many people do not practice what they preach, seeing these priests act authentically is a blessing.
