“On Sunday, we glorify the most important event that happened in human history – the Lord is Risen,” the Patriarchate quotes the words of the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church, affirmed by a phenomenon completely incomprehensible to human consciousness – His Resurrection of the Thus, he showed everyone that there are no limits to the omnipotence of God, that God can do everything to raise the dead, and divine power called the Lord Jesus Christ to life after three days of being in the coffin.

Patriarch Kirill recalled that the cathedral, where parishioners gathered for worship, is named after the Resurrection.

“A wonderful, brilliant, beautiful, beautifully restored temple,” said the primate of the Russian Orthodox Church. This temple would not have existed, or it would have been in a deplorable state, or it would have been used for other purposes. But this The beautiful Cathedral of the Resurrection in Arzamas, as if resurrected from a difficult past, is a testimony of our faith with you, the faith of those in power, the faith of ordinary people, the faith of intellectuals, of all those who make up our Church today.”

Vladyka noted that believers should be taught the following: “No matter what temptations visit us, no matter what false teachers, referring to some “scientific” data or denying the Resurrection, we must always believe that the Lord was born, lived, was died by human evil will, the power of the devil, and rose again. And we are the heirs of him, we believe in the Resurrection, which means that we believe in the meaning of human life.

Patriarch Kirill especially drew the attention of parishioners to the true meaning of life”. Some carriers of atheistic beliefs say:” Well, we live for future generations, “the primate of the Russian Orthodox Church cites one of the opinions – …Living for the future is an illogical goal, especially for a man with materialistic views. Why live for the future if I live now? And if I die and there is nothing else, what future do I live for? And if crime, wars, does injustice flourish? Is this what I lived for? By denying God, we deny the meaning of life, we deny the logic of human existence, everything loses meaning, and the justifications for this nonsense become illogical. Because If we live for future generations, for whom will they live? For future generations? But nobody knows what will happen through these tens of generations…”.

According to the patriarch, each person represents a value in the eyes of God, in addition, the life of each person is unique and unrepeatable.

“God brings us into this world so that we live according to his law, and then we get not only the meaning of being, but also eternal life,” the primate of the Russian Orthodox Church reminded believers. of the Resurrection. We truly believe that the Lord died and rose again. We believe that we too will rise after our death, that the resurrection is also our future.”

Patriarch Kirill shared with the parishioners his impressions of the restored church: “So beautiful, so magnificent, built in the style of Russian classicism.” He said the Resurrection Cathedral reminds him of the Transfiguration Cathedral in St. Petersburg, where his father served, who “was from Lukoyanovo, that is, from this land of Arzamas.”

“He served in the Cathedral of the Transfiguration of the Savior, and as a child I came there and prayed,” said the primate of the Russian Orthodox Church son of this land. The Patriarch recalled that living by faith means loving: “Love your country, love your country, your little country, love your husband or your wife, love your children, love your relatives and friends, and in general love people.”

On the same day, the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church visited the Museum of the Russian Patriarchate. He also approved the project of a monument to Saint Hermogenes, Patriarch of Moscow and all the Rus, presented by Metropolitan George. The monument will be installed on the temple square in honor of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God in Nizhny Novgorod in memory of the overcoming of the Era of Troubles in Russia at the beginning of the 17th century.
