Moscow, August 23, Interfax - Cross made of clouds appeared for several minutes in the sky above the Lubyanka Square in Moscow during a prayer service to the Solovki new martyrs last Sunday.
"It was seen by all the people, who attended the Solovki Candle action on the eve of the Solovki new martyrs and confessors commemoration day and numerous police officers who guarded Lubyanka Square," action organizer Pavel Illarionov told Interfax-Religion on Monday.
He reminded that the goal of the prayerful meeting was to obtain permission of Moscow and Russian authorities on setting up a commemorative cross near the Solovki Stone and building an Orthodox chapel to commemorate victims killed in repressions of the 20th century.
"Some people doubted that such a thing may happen, but I said: "Soon you'll see it with your own eyes." But even I couldn't expect that the sign in the sky would appear just in several minutes after a prayer to new martyrs began," Illarionov said.
According to him, the cross was seen during 20 minutes of the prayer service, then the clouds concealed it. Professor Pavel Florensky, a grandson of the renowned martyr, speaking after the prayer service said that no matter what rational explanation this sign may have "for a believing heart this miracle doesn't need any comments," and it made him believe that the Orthodox cross and church-chapel will be opened on Lubyanka Square very soon.
The Solovki Candle action was dedicated to the 90th anniversary of setting up the first Soviet concentration camp on Solovki Islands. Participants chanted "Memory Eternal" to all "suffered in severe trials on Solovki islands and other places.
Two jets that just missed colliding mid-air? :O)
Contrails on intersecting airways. As normal and common as the day is long.
Calling that a cross is quite the stretch.
Come on, that’s rediculous folks, I see that every single minute of every single day. It’s a wicked generation that seeketh after a sign ...
Looks like Allah’s vagina.
I would even accept it above the White House!!!
“OMG, it’s a full on complete double cross all the way across the sky!”
If I look hard enough I could probably see that every day.
“What does it MEAN?”
If I lived in Moscow I’d probably see crosses in everything too.
Had that same swirl in my cinnamon toast.
Two airplanes that passed in the sky. Wow, like it never has happened before...
I’ve been reading a great deal about the murder of millions in the USSR. Survivor’s stories.
It all started at Solovki. God bless them for remembering.
Nope... the Almighty's blowing smoke rings from a cigar he got from Rush. ;-)
