CD in Honour of the Words of Metropolitan Ilarion

Presented here is the poetic heritage of Metropolitan Ilarion (I. Ohienko) `` Serving fellow man also serves God``. This religious poetry, which is able to create in man, thoughts and deeds inspired by a deep faith in God and daily selfless service to His ideals. It is on this path which I. Ohienko undertook to become Metropolitan Ilarion, before World War II. And since then, with his pen began to create more poetic lines, whose objective was the creation of a truly religious world, the desire to "help people become closer to God, to accept Him as their own Father and to unite themselves with Him."

Metropolitan Ilarion undertook to establish the purpose of man on earth, which is to be in the service of others.
