Today, a Bright Week religious procession dedicated to strengthening the fragile peace in Novorossiya reached Donetsk. With the blessing of Russian Schema-Archimandrite Ilya, the marchers brought a Verneration Cross, with a particle of the True Holy Cross, to the cathedral. Russian Hieromonk Makary, who accompanied the cross, said, “Also, the Veneration Cross has capsules with earth taken with prayer from fields of military glory of Holy Rus and Russia… from Kulikovo Polye, and Ugra and Borodino”. He added that another capsule has earth from Godenovo, “a place with an ancient wonder-working Cross, which appeared 600 years ago in Yaroslavl, shortly before the fall of the (New) Roman Empire. The very appearance of the Godenovo cross shows Holy Rus’ continuity with the Orthodox Roman Empire”. At the same time, he brought a reliquary (in the form of an ancient cross) with relics of saints.

Sergei Polyakov, one of the organisers of the event, Vice President of the international organization antiterrorist unit “Alpha”, said, “This cross procession blessed by Schema-Archimandrite Ilya began in March during the Cross week of Lent. On 14 April, it reached the Kulikovo Polye. In Krasny Kholm, we held a molieben at St Sergei of Radonezh church. Procession participants also visited the famous monastery of St Tikhon of Zadonsk. In Novorossiya, marchers took part in a service at the cathedral in Lugansk, then, they went to Saur-Mogila and served a pannikhida for our fallen soldiers”. The procession ended at Holy Transfiguration Cathedral in Donetsk, they brought in the holy things, and Bishop Varsonofy Vinnichenko of Novoazovsk, the Vicar of the Diocese of Donetsk and Mariupol, served a solemn molieben. Chairman of the DNR Peoples Soviet A Е Purgin also attended the molieben, saying, “Our state gives a special role to Orthodoxy, for it’ll establish and fill the spiritual life of the citizens of our young republic”.

____________________________

A Pennsylvania slaughterhouse recalled 1,800 pounds of veal carcasses sold to families for Orthodox Easter without inspection. The US Agriculture Department said that Leader Slaughterhouse in Imler (Bedford County) PA produced six 300-pound veal carcasses on Friday outside of inspection hours. They didn’t bear the Agriculture Department’s mark of inspection, but no illnesses ensued from the incident. Plant Manager David Hill said that customers from Pennsylvania and New York picked up the quarter-cut carcasses to consume at home for Sunday’s Greek Orthodox Easter. Hill stated that none of the recalled meat wound up in stores. He says that customers already returned most of it to the slaughterhouse. Imler is about 28 miles south of Altoona.

______________________________

Elder Iona of Odessa prophesied that the Easter after his death would be an Easter of blood… such was so. He prophesied that the next Easter after that would be an Easter of hunger… such was so. He prophesied that the Easter after that would be an “Easter of Victory”… may God grant us that, in full. May Holy Rus see peace… in all honour and dignity, with all enemies chased away from its borders.
