What is the Church. 05.04.15


He was the carpenter’s son from a jerkwater town in a backwoods region… He chose that, y’know… think on THAT this Holy Week…


5 April 2015. Palm Sunday is Today… Holy Week is Next, Kids…

00 light of the world. 05.04.15


Holy Week starts tomorrow… technically, it isn’t Lent, but it ain’t Easter yet, which is next Sunday. This is the most consequential week of the year… it reminds us of who we are and what we believe… and why we believe it. If Christ be not risen from the dead, your faith is in vain… that’s as true today as it was in Roman times… read n’ heed, kids…

This is the beginning of the most intense week in Orthodox Christianity, both Eastern and Oriental, bar none. This is the week that the Christian Year revolves around. I’m not going to give you a long theological explanation of it all… I’m not qualified to do that; I’m not a theologian, I’m only an internet journalist. However, I do know that this week encapsulates WHY we’re Christians… WHY we’re Orthodox Christians. We walk the path to the Cross… to the Tomb… to the Victory that is Easter. As the Apostle said truly, If Christ be not risen from the dead, your faith is in vain. Indeed…

Zakharchenko Sent Official Passover Greetings to the Jewish Community in the DNR




My dearest compatriots!

To all members of the Jewish community in the DNR!

I greet you on the sacred holiday of Passover, which draws all believers to spiritual and moral values, to the ideals of freedom, goodness, and justice. During their long history, the Jewish people experienced many tragic times, often they faced destruction. However, during the most serious tests, your indomitable faith and devotion to the spiritual values of your ancestors helped you to stand tall. The Jewish community of our multiethnic Donbass is an extremely important element that strengthens our society, helping to bring us interethnic peace and harmony. The Jewish people have always been an example for us of diligence, fortitude, and natural talent. I sincerely wish all of you good health, happiness, domestic prosperity and abundance, family happiness, and most importantly… a pure and peaceful heaven over your head.
