The Russian Orthodox Church
Spiritual Russia

 

Icons of Russian Orthodox Church Kola Peninsula Lapland kolatravel cathedral resurrection monchegorsk icons kola peninsula russian orthodox church spiritual lapland virgin worship Patriarch AlexijThe Russian Orthodox Church is a largest from among fourteen landed churches which are included into a structure of Unified Sacred Cathedral and Apostolic Orthodox Church. Through continuous successive consecration, the Russian Orthodox Church inherits the spiritual authority from the disciples (Apostles) of our Lord Jesus Christ. Today (about 1000 years after christening of Russia) the Russian Orthodox Church experiences the genuine revival. Having released from social illusions and utopias, many Russian people deliberately return to a path indicated to us by the Jesus Christ, to a bosom of the church glorified by its saints, the church that saved traditions and spiritual gifts since the Twelve Apostles and the first Bishop of Jerusalem - the Saint Apostle Jacob (from among 70 disciples). The restoration "from the ashes" (only during five years!) of the greatest Russian cathedral of all times - the Temple of Christ the Savior in Moscow became a true evidence of revival of Russian Orthodox Church.

 

Cathedral of Resurrection in Monchegorsk. The biggest and most beautiful Russian Orthodox Church on Kola Peninsula kolatravel cathedral resurrection monchegorsk icons kola peninsula russian orthodox church spiritual lapland virgin worship Patriarch Alexij Cathedral of Resurrection in Monchegorsk. The biggest and most beautiful Russian Orthodox Church on Kola Peninsula kolatravel cathedral resurrection monchegorsk icons kola peninsula russian orthodox church spiritual lapland virgin worship Patriarch AlexijThe construction of cathedral of the Resurrection in Monchegorsk has become such evidence on our Kola Peninsula. This cathedral, consecrated by the AII Russia 's Patriarch Alexij in 1998, became a true decoration of our land. Another central temple of our eparchy - Saint-Nicolas cathedral in Murmansk, is reconstructed and decorated also.

You can visit these beautiful temples, but (whichever religion you are) observe the following rules: the men in a temple should be without head-dresses and the women on the contrary, are obliged to cover their heads. It is not allowed to talk and walk around the temple during a public worship, as it binders the believers to concentrate on a pray. For the same reason the candles, which you want to deliver to icons placed in an altar part of a temple, is better to carry not on your own, but to hand over through the people, or through the women working in the temple.

It's base is made by Old Slavonic language, which was used by the Saint brothers Cyril and Mefodij for translation of the Holy Writ and church Books from Greek language in VII century. Subsequently, the Old Russian language cautiously replaced separate, most obscure and disharmonious words and expressions.

This process was finished by issuing the "Elizabeth's Bible" in 1751, which text is used for public worship in Russian Orthodox Church nowadays. Through the church public worship, the orthodox Christians enter into mysterious dialogue with the God and receive from him vigour for righteous life.

The major decorations of an Orthodox temple are the icons with images of the Savior, of the Blessed Virgin and of the Saints. The icons of the Blessed Virgin are held in the special reverence and possess a beneficial force in the Orthodox Church.
