Professor’s Activities

Fr. Andriy Chirovsky Speaks About Ukraine and About the Meaning of Christmas

On December 16, 2014 The “Daily Double” radio program on Tucson, AZ, radio station KVOI 1013 AM featured an hour-long conversation with MASI Founder, Fr. Andriy Chirovsky. The program, hosted by Chris DeSimone, features a daily extended interview with one guest. Fr. Andriy has been the featured guest before. This time the MASI professor was asked to speak about the current situation in Ukraine, after it has largely fallen out of the attention of the Mass Media. He was also asked to speak about Christmas, focusing not only on folk customs among Ukrainians, but more importantly on the theology of the Incarnation and pastoral approaches to a proper appropriation of the festivities of the Christmas Season. The recording of the program is available here:
