Moscow, March 13, Interfax - The Korsun Diocese of the Russian Church reached an agreement with Notre-Dame de Paris on conducting Orthodox prayer services each Friday of the Great Lent.
The acathist to the Mother of God will be read before the Icon of the Mother of God of Vladimir conveyed to the cathedral by Patriarch Alexy II to commemorate his visit to Notre-Dame de Paris in 2007.
Orthodox prayer service will anticipate the ceremony of venerating to the Saviour's Crown of Thorns kept in the church for many centuries, the official site of the Korsun Diocese reports.
Did Paris surrender already?
His Will be done.
We all should credit Putin with his rather brilliant and unopposed effort to unite the Orthodox churches. With Moscow as the center of the patriarchates, he will effectively be elevated to the status of a “Christian Emperor”.
This is great news. Lots of baby steps as we work toward unity.
Beats having the Mohammadan statement of faith chanted there, but surely there are already Orthodox churches in Paris, since that was the city of choice for many who fled the Bolsheviks.
