Patriarch Kirill's address in connection with the tragic events in Syria

49
His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia issued an appeal in connection with the tragic events in Syria.


Graces archpastors, reverend fathers, dear brothers and sisters!

For nearly two years hostilities continued in Syria. During this time, tens of thousands of people died in the country, including many old people, women, and children of civilians.

A significant part of the Syrian people are our fellow believers: in the city of Damascus is the center of one of the oldest Orthodox Patriarchates - the Antioch. And now on the streets of this city, remembering the apostle Paul, the exploits and labors of the ancient saints, human blood is being shed. In this biblical land, where Orthodox Christians and Muslims lived side by side in the world, shrines are being desecrated today, temples are being defiled, Christians are being driven out of their homes, persecuted, and often tortured and killed.

Destroyed homes, destroyed infrastructure, not enough food and medicine, many people lost their homes. Someone went to relatives, someone found shelter in special points, and someone was forced to flee to neighboring countries, where often no one was waiting for them.

Our people just recently experienced this. During the years of revolution, civil war, and persecution of the Church, thousands of our compatriots were destroyed. Among them were many hierarchs, priests, monks and laity. We honor the feat of the new martyrs and confessors of Russia. And at the same time they should not be indifferently looking at how innocent blood is being shed again.

You and I cannot stop this war, but we can earnestly pray for its early termination and assist the suffering people, including our fellow Christians.

The Lord Jesus Christ in the parable of the merciful Samaritan (Luke 10: 29-37) clearly indicates who we should consider our neighbor: the one who needs help. Even if it is a person of other views, another faith, living in another place. After all, it was such a person for the merciful Samaritan who was injured at the hands of robbers.

I ask you to follow the call of Christ and help our neighbors, that is, those who are now particularly in need of support and participation.

To this end, I bless in the coming Sunday in all the churches of the Russian Orthodox Church to organize a fundraiser to help those in need in Syria. Funds should be sent to the accounts of the Synodal Department for Church Charity and Social Service, which is entrusted to coordinate this good undertaking. At the end of the general church collection, the funds will be transferred to the Antioch Patriarchate.

I pray for the cessation of bloodshed and the restoration of peace on the Syrian land and I hope that your sacrifices will be favorable before God.

+ CYRILL, PATRIARCH OF MOSCOW AND ALL RUSSIA

    First, the country should have conducted the correct work on the Correct coverage of events in Syria, and not campaign from the ramparts to help the whole world.
    The thing is that outside our forum, few in Russia are aware of all the subtleties and all the tragedy of what is happening in Syria, but this is not right!
    ____
    For example, a discussion of the news: "Bishop Tikhon called on the Sakhalin people to help the people of Syria" http://forum.sakh.com/?sub=1171009
    What the discussion resulted in is better not to tell but to read.
    (I tried as best I could to direct a discussion of that topic under one of the nicknames)

      And from what side is the Orthodox Church here? Others are organizing such work. And among the churchmen there are different people, but the patriarch addressed the address. To those who can and want. A simple person cannot send something to help himself, but such a structure as the church can and should.

                There are simply no words ... ETOGES must be so boring and stubborn!
                I initially wrote that the country needs to conduct proper coverage of events in Syria. To convey this to every resident. And not necessarily the ROC, but by the state itself through the media and other levers.
                And now after and lead the calls of the Russian Orthodox Church at least to other organizations not commercial ... Yes, at least create special funds for this.
                Otherwise, you can frighten off potential people and force yourself to misunderstand!
                Yes, it's elementary!

                  I understood your idea in the comments, I tried to fix it by pluses to the best of my ability.
                  You are absolutely right, the state should convey to citizens its position, and not to inspire, but to convince! For example, the slogans of the Western media "the Syrian people are fighting for freedom and democracy and use chemical weapons" is an suggestion, we are simply hammered into the brain, mixed with lies. And for example, information about thugs bandits, shown by our media is already a conviction, if only because they add a video to this about how some scum tears out and eats a person’s heart. Although indirectly, I am convinced of this personally since I become a witness.
                  Here it seems to me that our media are trying to mostly consistently provide information on Syria, and as for the help of the Russian Orthodox Church or other organizations, this is their personal affair, as is the case of every Russian person independent of the state. In my opinion, this is a deep understanding of freedom, democracy and independence, when people organize themselves looking at the outrages without the help of the state, which in essence is only a tool to help maintain a certain lifestyle.
                  Yes, the Russian Orthodox Church is actively helping, but I want to say that taking a text from the Bible as a moral reference is far from the worst option in the modern world.
                  And if we organized and enlightened only at the expense of the state, then forgive me, but we would be just a thoughtless herd of sheep that the shepherd told us to go, and we went, said to rejoice and rejoice.
                  And another moment, if anyone did not notice, but all global events take place in the center of Biblical geography: the inhabited land, Libyan deserts, into which the first monks, the lands of Egypt, the Syrian region, where the Holy Apostles really lived and carried their teachings, left. But are these countries world tycoons playing the first violin and deciding complex relationships among themselves? Agree that there is something to ponder ...

          The Orthodox Church here is from such a side: it does not shout to the left and the right, “Cheers of the patriots, let’s tear them all with one left,” but silently collects donations for help.
          Do you feel the difference between "word" and "deed"? So the ROC from the side where the real thing is going and not words.

            And since the current patriarch does this (by the way, this person generally causes me nothing but annoyance) .. since it’s useless to do it, and by and large it’s just PR, and not a real call for real help ...
            That is how such an indistinct appeal can be explained. otherwise it is impossible to explain! Because when you really want to help, you do your best to make your business as successful as possible.

          It is enough to see how people stood up for almost a day in lines to bow to the relics of saints. This is the true attitude of people to the Faith and the Church. Do not look for those and set as an example, some sit at the computer and spit terraces, while others stand in the temple with prayer.

              And the attempt to demolish the war memorial to the winners on the Victory Square in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk at the request of Patriarch Kirill and erect a temple in its place - what should I call it?
              This memorial and the Victory Square itself is a symbol of the proud Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk for over a decade.
              Under the pedestal of the T-34-85 tank is a capsule pledged by veterans for future generations!
              Veterans and ordinary residents have repeatedly held rallies and collected signatures against this desecration of memory by these unfortunate Orthodox!
              After that, respect the priests of the city, who drive cars worth more than 3 million rubles?
              Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, although it was not awarded the title of a hero city, battles with the Japanese took place throughout the south of the island and in the vicinity of the city!
              Everywhere still find the remains and objects from the war!
              And such a betrayal and universal worship by priests of material values ​​and led people crazy!
              But that’s not all, there are smaller constant nasties to people's feelings.
              So come on YOU will not climb with your scores from the search engine ...
              But I didn’t talk about this at all in this topic, but about the need to cover issues in Syria and this need is not connected with the Russian Orthodox Church !!!!
              PS and where does the massons and all sorts of sectarians? they have already somehow been kicked out by the townspeople themselves.

                Another stinky disa with a distortion of facts.



                - Many explain their protest against the construction of the temple by the fact that His Holiness Patriarch Kirill, announcing its construction, ignored the opinion of the residents of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.
                - In this case, I would like to ask the South Sakhalin people why they did not take offense and did not demand public hearings when temples of other faiths and sects were erected in the city. What, in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on this occasion were referenda? They were not even close. Well, the logic of Patriarch Kirill seems to me completely understandable. First, Sakhalin forgot about the Great Patriotic War. Because, excuse me, those three nightstands that stand on Victory Square are a shame. For 65 years, nothing has been created. There is not even a museum of the history of the liberation of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands. But there is a tank that has become a toy for children. In Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, you need not just a memorial, but a complex, which will include not only a museum, but also a scientific and educational center. It should be presented as samples of weapons of the Soviet Army, as well as archival documents, artifacts, memoirs of front-line soldiers. And, of course, there should be an opportunity to conduct excursions .....


                - How do you evaluate the project of the memorial complex proposed for discussion?

                - Very tactful, very good project. THERE IS NOTHING DESTROYED. The place is refined the pedestals on which the tank and guns are mounted are refined, they remain in their quality, in their place. But, besides this, there is also a museum room and a temple. And that, again, I think it will be good - the temple itself will obscure the stadium. Is it good that the monument to the dead marks just a passage to the stadium? The warriors who were dying here did not die for football and not for physical activities. So let the communists address the reproaches of blasphemy to themselves - because they placed a stadium on this square.

                  What is the connection with the Russian Orthodox Church ??? yes such that the general contractor is the same laughing Do you understand?
                  And just the other day it was announced that it was planned to build the "largest water park" for 3,6 billion!! And guess who the contractor is laughing and you say Sochi ...

                    But after all, Gundyaev (Kirill) knew about the construction of the temple BEFORE it was spoken about by the authorities and even BEFORE the people knew .. and the people actually learned everything from Gundyaev when he arrived on Sakhalin, speaking on Victory Square, said " here on this place there will be a temple "... Fun?
                    After that there was a lot of lies and accusations of the people almost of blasphemy ... WWII veterans of blasphemy!

                    Firstly, the construction of the temple in no way means the demolition of pedestals, and secondly, the temple is part of the memorial complex that will be created.

                        Or do you believe only the words of United Russia? laughing

                        I believe the words of the leader of the Communist Party, which you are waving here:


                        "The army and the Orthodox faith are the two pillars which, after the liquidation of the conquests of the Soviet power, will be primarily cut down by the haters of the Russian people and Russia, whose main task is the destruction of our spirituality and traditions."



                        ".... today we are witnessing a coordinated campaign of attacks on the Russian Orthodox Church by representatives of aggressive liberal forces. In addition, various types of Russophobic slops are pouring more and more from citizens' TV screens"



                        "A liberal schiz will sooner or later break its head, because constantly beating in the most insecure place - our national identity - amid the privatization robbery that is taking place in the country and the flagrant social injustice can only be people who have completely forgotten about their personal safety.

                        Apparently, once starting this anti-national Sabbath, they have neither the mind nor the conscience to stop, and then, faced with the sharp reactions of society, these people will poke a finger and blame someone for extremism. In fact, this aggressive liberalism - this cave Russophobia, blasphemy regarding our spiritual values ​​is the most sophisticated, most vile extremism "


                        "The present and future of Christianity, which has nourished and nurtured European civilization for many centuries, and in many respects the whole world civilization, turned out to be superfluous for the new masters of the world"


                        "there is a powerful and cynical mental attack on Orthodoxy"



                        "The ritual murders of Orthodox priests, the defamatory desecration of our churches, the arrogant mockery in the media, especially on television, of the highest hierarchs of the Russian Orthodox Church, the cheeky laughter of saints for believers by things from those who consider themselves masters of life - this is what is becoming stronger and stronger more striking in Russian reality "

            Patriarch Kirill hopes that the Christians of Syria will be able to successfully survive difficult times

            Damascus. November 14th. INTERFAX - Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill called on compatriots in Syria to preserve the Orthodox faith and peace, while noting the need for "good changes."

            "I pray today especially about the Christians of Syria and all the inhabitants of this country. God grant that the whirlwinds of upheaval pass by without touching the foundations of popular life," he said at a meeting with compatriots on Saturday evening in the church of St. Ignatius the God-bearer in Damascus, where There is a representative office of the Russian Church under the Patriarch of Antioch.

            The patriarch recalled that Russia “went through civil upheavals,” and its inhabitants know “what are murderous conflicts, shed blood and how expensive people then pay for all this.”

            "Therefore, recognizing the need to maintain peace in this country, we also pray that good and correct changes will be implemented in the life of the people, that people will be given the opportunity to participate more in the life of society and the state, to satisfy their needs - and thus, to feel calm, confident and happy, ”he stressed.

            According to the Primate, “when they wanted to break the skeleton of the people's life, they smashed the Church,” because it is “a great force transmitting unshakable, eternal, moral, spiritual, as well as national values.” For those who are abroad, he noted, the role of the Church is especially growing.

            “Keep the Orthodox faith,” Patriarch Kirill urged compatriots. He considers it very important that "the parish be a living community" - then "a sense of solidarity" arises, "mutual support" appears.

            “Syria and the Middle East are going through difficult times. But I did not consider it possible to either cancel this visit or postpone it,” the primate said. According to him, the Church and the shepherd should always be with their flock, especially in difficult times.

            The High Priest recalled that he had been in the church of St. Ignatius the God-bearer many times as chairman of the Department for External Church Relations, which he had headed for 20 years, and for him this temple is "very close." On the same day, he, together with the Patriarch of Antioch and the whole East, Ignatius IV, performed the Divine Liturgy in the Assumption Cathedral of Damascus. Hundreds of believers gathered in the temple - Syrians and Russian-speaking residents. The service was performed in Arabic and Russian.

    Often this phenomenon, which is not noticeable in everyday life behind everyday activities and worries, is no no and it will show its bestial muzzle in all its glory!
    They burned the cross there, sawed it there, the girls on the altar rave about it, they support them, pouring mud on the Russian Orthodox Church with signs of good taste on the Russian Orthodox Church, and again the other day threw a bottle of combustible mixture into the temple window! Cyril says that a significant part of the Syrian people are our co-religionists who are raped and killed, desecrated and destroyed shrines! Need to help!
    And the demoniac climbed out - it would have been better if it had been better if they had snickered, they received a pointer from the Kremlin, PR, the bourgeoisie!
    Bishop archpastors, pious fathers, brothers and sisters - these are whom the Patriarch is addressing and whom he has blessed for prayer and help to the people of Syria! The people and help with God's help by praying.
    And your eternal affair, the possessed ones, is grimacing and mocking, but turning the Orthodox people away from the true path! But only more and more people are looking at you with pity and squeamishness, with squeamish pity! Truly whom the Lord wants to punish is punished with madness!
    The Patriarch addressed his brothers and sisters, it’s not about you!
