MOSCOW, April 4 (RIA Novosti) - A dozen church bells decorated with symbols of the Airborne Troops will be sanctified on Sunday in an Orthodox Church in Moscows northeast, a Russian Defense Ministry spokesman said Thursday.
Col. Alexander Kucherenko said it was the first time that bells had been decorated not only with images of saints but also with Airborne Troops emblems and army symbols during the casting.
Work to cast twelve bells was funded by donations from the Airborne Troops, veterans of combat and counterterrorism operations and their family members, Kucherenko said. The bells will be consecrated in the Annunciation Church that serves the Airborne Troops Staff in Sokolniki.
After the consecration, the bells will be put onto the church's belfry. The Annunciation Church, which is currently being restored, is supposed to serve as the Airborne Troops main church.
Thank you, Jesus.
I think they are reestablishing an institutionalized government religion and persecuting other Christians.
I don’t see that kind of anti-Christian corruption bearing good fruit.
If you are curious look at some of the stories yourself, I told you my perception of stories from recent years, what Putin is doing on Russia does not look healthy, nor very Christian.
