ethnical and mental phenomena are. The vast majority of researchers determine the main orientation on ―heart expressions‖ among religious traits of Ukrainian nation. The ―heart expressions‖ orientation implies that the central role in a human life belongs to emotions, feelings, namely to ―heart power‖, by contrast rational and mental factors play secondary role. Such ―heart‖ religious form means simple practical faith expression which is embodied in natural and ritual faith, superstitions, sense of family, lack of fanaticism, confessional indifference and plurality of worldview. The enumerated features are a base for secularism and orthodox dogmas rejection. The notions of such called ―heart faith‖, ―simple God belief‖ and ―heart oriented‖ Ukrainian character can generally be followed in the common phrases‘ contexts: ―a person of saint and open heart‖, ―open your heart to 227 God‖, ―he does not have God in his heart‖, ―if God exists in a heart than a man will be a man‖, ―if a man is shameless, he will not contain God in his heart‖, etc. The special family focus is a distinctive feature of Ukrainian religion. Such tendencies lie in a strong desire to compound religious image with family atmosphere. Thus, even a common family situation could sometimes obtain a sudden celebration and a religious color. The classical example of the statement is the famous line of Taras Shevchenko‘s poem: ―The cherry orchard by the house…‖ in which a common dinner in a family circle resembles a sacral ritual or religious action. The process of bread baking has also obtained particular ritual features; moreover not all people can be welcomed to watch the process or to be invited at the family table. As it can be noticed, the elements of Ukrainians religious rituals are primary connected with a family house, as a result pagan holidays as well as Christian ones are not oriented on church celebration, but on family festivities (as a household in Ukrainian language can be understood as a place blessed by God). Consequently, family focused rituals can be considered to be the next feature of Ukrainian religious expression and obviously lack of ―church classical orthodox rituals‖ can be noted
