“Whoever wants can pray together,” says Klim in front of the military formation, behind him the soldiers hold a banner with the face of Christ. – Repeat each word. Let’s read the Creed with you. If you don’t want to, you can listen. Who is upset, can walk away. The brothers prepared pocket prayer books for the warriors. After the prayer, you can take. Let’s take off our hats, men, who will pray!
Almost all the soldiers took off their hats. After reading the Creed, Klim Poplavsky walked along the line and with the words “Save, Lord!” and he distributed prayer books to all who wished.
“When there is no priest nearby, which the soldier needs like air, then we all become priests for each other. So Klim, like a regimental chaplain, first unfurls the banner with Christ in front of the ranks, and then – the hearts of all ranks of soldiers – to Christ”, – notes Boris Korchevnikov.
