Cross appears in the sky during prayer service.....
http://www.interfax-religion.com/?act=news&div=7618 ^ | August 23rd, 2010

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.

Contrails on intersecting airways. As normal and common as the day is long.

Calling that a cross is quite the stretch.

I’ve been reading a great deal about the murder of millions in the USSR. Survivor’s stories.

It’s heartbreaking.

It all started at Solovki. God bless them for remembering.

Indeed!

The demographics tell the tale: The Lenin & Stalin Holocaust cost the lives of at least 60 million Russians and coupled with decades of socialism & abortion means that Russia will disappear in less than one hundred years.

Um, okay. I’ve seen this kind of thing many times, generally caused by the vapor trails of two jets.

Two contrails,,,,,BUT it’s a nice inkblot test of the Russian mind, to think that they “saw” a cross. I won’t be mean about these nice people who love Christ. Bless their cotton socks,,,sometimes it’s nice to see innocence.

Cross in CloudsGood story. I went online to look for more cross in cloud photos and found this one which was actually a typical blue-sky picture, but when I hit "Auto-fix" on Picnik (with no enhancements added), it came up like this. Really something. Looks very much like a crucifix. Anyway, the two links where I originally found this picture are here and here.

I hate it when they depict Jesus as some sentimental person with soft begging eyes. Sorry Lord, but they try to make you look like a hungry cocker spaniel.

The way I visualize Him is the way St. John the Apostle, who knew Him personally, saw Him standing between the lamp stands in the Apocalypse. It made him collapse in awe.
I don’t know what St. John saw but it must’ve been the reality.

Imagine how upset the Saudis would have been if it would have appeared above Mecca during prayers. They would’ve probably send up jets to shoot it down.

It’s not a ‘stretch’. It’s clearly a cross.
Most likely made by jets, but still a cross.

It’s only a cross because of the cropping...

In reality, it’s an X or a +
