8 March 2017. Finding of the Relics of St Matrona the Blessed of Moscow

____________________________________

The wonder-working power of Matrona of Moscow was directly due to her suffering, to the endurance of her anguish as she bore her salvific and life-giving cross. May the Lord help us all; call upon the Holy Righteous Matrona, ask for her aid in solving your life’s problems. At the same time, ask her to fill your heart and your mind with the power of her example, with the understanding of what it means for you to carry the cross that God imposes on you.

Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias

On 8 March 1998, Patriarch Aleksei Ridiger of Moscow and all the Russias authorised the uncovering of the relics of St Matrona Nikonova the Blessed of Moscow. This is the second holy day for this saint (the other is on 2 May, the date of her death). Today, her relics are in the Pokrovsky Stavropegic Convent in Moscow… one can venerate them every day from 07.00 until 20.00… on Sunday, the relics open for veneration at 06.00. Thousands of people daily come to Matrona to venerate her relics. Easily, she’s one of the most “popular” saints in Moscow. The fact that International Women’s Day and this holy day of St Matrona coincide is a coincidence, but a happy one.

Today is Forgiveness Sunday

Please forgive! 

If they ask for and seek forgiveness from the soul and you answer with forgiveness, as hidden sin burdens and injures the soul, your life won’t be in turmoil! On this last day of Maslenitsa… give forgiveness!

_____________________________________

Dear Friends!

Today is Forgiveness Sunday. I ask everyone I’ve wronged to forgive me; let’s bury all our disputes and misunderstandings. Let’s show kindness, to bring comfort our souls. I ask all of you to go to your loved ones to ask them for forgiveness; those who forgive will receive forgiveness. Let universal peace and happiness reign amongst us!

Thanks,

Aleksei Zhuravko

Aleksei Zhuravko is one of the patriot leaders in the Donbass. Never forget that the Peoples Republics rest on the double foundation of Socialism and Orthodox Christianity. The Uniate aggressors, on the other hand, believe in Oligarch Capitalism and Western Heterodoxy. You may support one or the other, but not both. I think that it’s no mystery where my sympathies lie.

A local resident called the police from 5 Monetchikovsky Pereulok in the centre of Moscow, saying that two men were fighting in the doorway. One was an intoxicated foreigner who took a piece of rebar and hit the Muscovite on the hands and feet. Police detained the intruder, but the American fell ill. They sent him to hospital with suspected alcohol poisoning.

____________________________________

Winter season officially started in Moscow… massive festivities celebrated the opening of the outdoor skating rinks at the city’s main parks. A beautiful light show took place at VDNKh’s skating rink, which was the largest ice rink in Europe for the third year in a row. Those who attended the opening show of the Ermitazh Garden’s skating rink enjoyed a Venetian carnival. Due to the unique technology used to create it, the Lyod skating rink at Sokolniki Park is one of the most colourful and modern rinks in Moscow as its artificial ice doesn’t depend on the weather.
