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. ;-)
O YE OF LITTLE FAITH! :-)
Run for your lives!
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.
Not at all. I don’t think He’s returning for a long long time... and I have greater doubts men can make a watch that will count it down...
Um, okay. I’ve seen this kind of thing many times, generally caused by the vapor trails of two jets.
Strange that this story would show up today of all days. I snapped a pictue of two such “crosses” on my drive to work this morning. Will try to post the picture later.
Please excuse me but it looks like an X to me.
Oh, no! It’s the electromagnetic scalar potential interferometer weapons from the Russians!
Chemtrails! Aiyeeeee! Bush, Cheney, and Haliburton are using these to control our minds/kill us all! /conspiracy nutter LOL
That one got Obama on his knees.
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.
That’s not cresents.
It’s bigfoots footprint. Can’t you see the toes?
Something big’s going to happen in the Northwest...
Creative use #14 for an inkjet printer.
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.
Wow, love that panorama. Do you know where it was taken? Thanks.
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.
Just pure coincidence, but I snapped this with my iPhone today on the way to work:
That is I snapped that picture this morning (23 Aug)
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 +
I agree. The last days will come as a surprise and America will have disappeared by then.
So, is that a message that God is female?
