14 April 2015. Elder Iona of Odessa Made Prophecies About Three Easters… Two Have Been Spot-On…

00 Putin. Kirill. Next Year in Kiev. 14.04.15

______________________________

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.

14 April 2015. It Was Just an “Ordinary” Parish Easter in PA…

00 Happy Easter 01. Happy Acolytes. 20.04.14.

______________________________

We’ve all heard the slick professional “performances” of the Easter liturgy… well, here’s a clip from a real-deal parish in PA. THIS is what most of us got for Easter… we’re right satisfied, to say the least. The older that I get, the less “fussy” I am about details (to the point where I know it’d drive one younger friend in particular to the bottle… the devil isn’t in the details, dear). I’m happy to have the liturgy, no matter how I can get it…

Christ IS risen from the dead… as the Apostle said, our faith is NOT in vain…

Today, Denis Afanasyev, a representative of the Bely Medved (White Bear (Polar Bear)) dairy products company, told us that his enterprise sent a half-tonne Tsar-Paskha prepared by its chefs in Rostov to Donetsk; it served about 10,000 Donetsk residents and their guests during the celebration of the Radiant Resurrection of Christ at A S Shcherbakov Park. Afanasyev said, “This paskha now has the title of the largest Russian Paskha; it’s officially registered in the book of records. We think that it’ll give at least 10,000 celebrants a holiday treat today. Our decision to give bakery products to Donetsk residents had a spiritual root, to boost the morale of a city that we love so very much”.

Eight chefs laboured to create the mammoth paskha. Afanasyev noted that they first packed [the cheese mixture] into the form and put it into the chiller. After a few days of setting-up, they then frosted the confection. They used 300 kilos of quark/farmer’s cheese, 100 kilos of confectioner’s sugar, 60 kilos of sweet butter, 30 kilos of sultanas/raisins, and 6 kilos of peanuts/groundnuts, as well as a kilo of nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla flavouring and 3 kilos of icing to create their world-record treat.

The Easter events at Shcherbakov Park in Donetsk attracted thousands of revellers. Adults, kids, and seniors queued up for festive kulichi. There was a samovar set up on the central park-lane offering free tea and there was a crafts fair with local folk artisans showing their goods. Nearby, people could have their picture taken with the Easter Bunny. Donetsk resident Yelena Kononova told our correspondent, “Today, there are a lot of people in the park. Thanks to the organisers that made such a holiday treat for the kids, we know that others haven’t forgotten us. This is a rare opportunity to recapture a peacetime mood and truly relax. Christ is Risen!”

The Donetsk Mayor’s Office sponsored and put on the Easter celebration in the park. Igor Martynov, the head of the Donetsk GMA* was at the festivities; he thanked the Rostov chefs for their gigantic paskha and greeted locals on this Bright Day, “I greet all Donetsk citizens on this holiday. I want to express our gratitude to our friends from Rostov, who made this feast possible. They also brought humanitarian aid in the form of cheese curd and butter, which we distributed to our seniors, to our schools, and to our nurseries”. Martynov emphasised that the large number of people on Donetsk streets symbolises the return of normal life to the city. People came out even though there were attacks today. He noted, “You know, there was an attempt to break through, but no one can spoil this sacred holiday for us”.

  • GMA: City Municipal Administration, administrative apparat of a city

On the park stage, local dance and musical ensembles performed, leading the people in singing and dancing for hours. The Easter events in the DNR capital will last until 22.00 tonight.

Editor:

The people of Donetsk are holding on… as difficult as the times are for them, they’re WORSE in junta-misruled Banderstan. Prices climb daily… the shop shelves are bare… people receive their pay and pensions late, if at all. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers. I’d say to the Donetsk homies… “You have friends, THOUSANDS of them. Do NOT lose heart. Just as the junta is a pack of liars, so are their Western puppeteers and paymasters. You’re closer to victory than you think”.

Remember our suffering compatriots in Novorossiya, both free territories and those under the boot of the cruel Uniate nationalist junta occupation. Golgotha isn’t over for them, yet… NEVER forget that…
