    The Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia mr. Cyril, after the Divine liturgy and the procession of the image of the Holy Trinity in the Church of St. Sergius, made a statement that will be discussed for the “mission” of Russia.
    Speaking of himself in the sermon he noted that today Russia has “a very special mission”, according to which we need to carry the light of Christianity all over the world, Ria Novosti reported.
    “We know what happened in history, and now there are the same conditions for the intervention of a great christian country . And in this sense, Russia has a special mission. If you don’t do as Christians, more should not call ourselves Christians, and we are not a christian country, because then we will have lost our faith,” said the Russian Patriarch.
    He also noted that despite the many decades of atheism and secularism of the SOVIET union, “the founding fathers and our mothers and grandparents have maintained the orthodox faith in Russia, and now revived the Orthodox Church, and for that we should give our thanks to God,” he said.
    In accordance with mm. Cyril, the maintenance of the faith and the transmission of intact to children and grandchildren , it is for believers “the truth and the cause for which Jesus Christ was crucified on Calvary, and shone the light of the Risen Christ in the cave of the tomb . For all those who maintain their faith in the Lord, today we have a special mission, to bring light to the world for ourselves , for our family , and for the whole human race.”, reached the Patriarch of all the Russias.
    The bottom line is that “spoke” for the “mission” of Russia as a orthodox christian country , hitting for a lot of and a lot of countries “”large bells” , like the ones that has the St. Basil’s cathedral in Moscow. If the cap…fits, wear it.
