'Russia’s spiritual revival might inspire' Western Europe
'The spiritual revival of Russia might inspire Christians in Western
European countries that have adopted anti-religious laws'.
This was stated by head of the Russian Orthodox Church Patriarch Kirill
after a service at the Novodevichy Monastery in Moscow to celebrate the
anniversary of the return to the Church of the Iberian Mother of God icon.
The Patriarch regrets that many countries in Western Europe are
legalizing sins condemned by God. In ancient Russia, the Iberian icon
stayed in the Novodevichy Monastery for three centuries. Since 1917, it
was kept in reserves of the State Historical museum.
