&Laquo; word « culture » recently on the lips of many people. Different people have different approaches to the subject. Most of those involved culture, understanding its importance in the lives of people complain that the state devotes very little attention to culture, and their main argument – is insignificant percentage of governmentbudget allocated to the field of culture. This is probably true for institutions responsible for culture loud enough people talk about the lack of financial support & raquo ;, – he writes.

Speaking of general culture, Lubomyr Husar defines it as the amount of artistic achievements. &Laquo; it is not only about things as carriers of beauty, and that in the amount of gains occupies an important role as a man & raquo ;, – he explains.

&Laquo; these cultural works can be created both professional and folk artists. Some are designed to be examined, while others belong to the so-called arts, these are things that are used in niodennomu life. The people are proud of their cultural heritage, keep them at the same time trying to make their living elements of social life. And rightly so, because through these cultural heritage of nations spiritually developing ushlyahetnyuyutsya, elevate the level of their world view & raquo ;, – writes Cardinal of the Catholic Church.

on the verge of great changes in the life of our people can not afford even the imaginationyou implement fully justified dreams existence of the original society without continuing process of culture.
This preservation of the past and future development will help us to consciously become one people. Without this awareness, we can very easily become a victim of anyone who wants to see us divided, quarreled, so weak & raquo ;, – adds the UGCC.
