Moscow. January 13. INTERFAX – vicar of the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Bishop Bogorodskiy Anthony told me that his friend, the Icelander, do not speak Russian, is a big fan of the Patriarch.
“Just recently I was in Iceland and met with one man, an Icelander, and he told me that he did not know a word of Russian, but every Saturday listening to the program “pastor’s Word” and the Internet enjoyed listening to the sermon of Patriarch Kirill, in which he doesn’t understand a word, but feels some kind of special power, which from these words is coming,” he said Friday in Moscow at the presentation of the book “Patriarch Kirill. Thoughts for every day of the year.”
Bishop Anthony also said that on duty his obedience is very often foreign visits parishes located in different parts of the earth, and noted that “in our churches come not only representatives of those peoples who are traditionally associated with the Russian Orthodox Church, comes a lot of people that do not belong to the Russian world, who are very interested in Orthodoxy, but do not speak the Russian language.”
