Josaphat was an archbishop in Ukraine who was completely faithful to the Catholic Church. However, there were people in his diocese who were not loyal to the pope. Josaphat worked to unite them to the Church under the pope’s authority. His goal was to bring his beloved country out of religious feuds to unity in the one true Church.
