Two quotes attributed to Blessed Bishop +Paul are:

"I am certain that at the end truth will triumph over lies, and love will overcome hatred. I do not hate my enemies. I would like to bring them closer to Christ, of course not by force or deceit but by love and truth."

"Our present afflictions will neither break us nor separate us from the true Church and love of Christ. On the contrary. Persecution and sufferings will only strengthen our faith and bring us closer to Christ and His Church."


O Almighty God, our Lord, we bless You, we praise You, and we thank you for all the graces which You, in Your infinite mercy have bestowed upon us. We are especially grateful for giving us Bishop Paul P. Gojdich, OSBM, who, by his courage, charity and intrepid faith, inspired our Ruthenian people in the darkest moments of their history. By his great sufferings, humiliating imprisonment, and violent death he gave living witness to his Catholic faith and glorified Your exalted name. Therefore, O Gracious Lord, glorify him in return by Your divine power and inscribe his name in the book of Your Saints.

For You are holy, our God, and we render glory to You, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and ever, and forever. Amen.
