  Out of the world’s 5,600 Catholic bishops, 10 of the youngest are Ukrainian. This weekend marks a decade since the selection of a 40-year-old to lead the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church. Svyatoslav Shevchuk was elected to lead the 5.5 million Ukrainian Catholics in March 2011. The choice of such a young individual in an organization whose leaders have traditionally been associated with long grey beards raised eyebrows. Ten years on, however, the church is among the most trusted institutions in the land, with a 62% vote of confidence among Ukrainians.
