On Wednesday, 20 January 2010, Pope Benedict XVI gave his assent to the declaration of impediment of the eparchial see of Stryi of the Ukrainians, Ukraine, canonically issued by the Synod of Bishops of the Greek-Catholic Ukrainian Church, because of the state of health of Julian Gbur, S.V.D., in accordance with Canon 233, Paragraph 1 of the Code of Canon Law for the Eastern Churches.
