Your Graces, brother-archpastors, reverend fathers, beloved brothers and sisters in the Lord!

By God’s ineffable goodness, we enter once more into the joyous days of the great feasts of Christ’s Nativity and Theophany. I sincerely greet you all with this world-saving joy!

Протоиерей Георгий Ларин: «Курская икона Божией Матери хранит нас, а не мы её»

В декабре Русская Зарубежная Церковь планирует торжественно отметить 725 лет со дня прославления Курской Коренной иконы Божией Матери. Одна из величайших православных святынь, которую белые эмигранты вывезли из России в 1920-м году, стала путеводительницей Русского рассеяния. Далее читайте здесь.

Jubilee Epistle of His Eminence Hilarion Metropolitan of Eastern America and New York First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad

Your Graces Brother-Archpastors, Honorable Fathers,
Beloved Brothers and Sisters in the Lord!

I sincerely greet you with the 725th Anniversary of the appearance of the miraculous Kursk-Root Icon of the Mother of God of the “Sign,” and with the Centennial of the founding of the Higher Church Administration Abroad, which later was transformed into the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Church Abroad. We are not marking the events that destroyed all the foundations of Pre-Revolutionary Russia, and which hit extremely hard on our dear Mother – the Local Russian Orthodox Church – having pushed Her, together with the whole country, onto a path of great suffering, repression, martyrdom and confession. Rather, we raise up gratitude to God, Who has preserved us under the shelter of our precious Orthodox Faith, in the traditions of the glorious Russian Church. (more…)

Юбилейное послание Высокопреосвященнейшего Илариона, митрополита Восточно-Американского и Нью-Йоркского, Первоиерарха Русской Зарубежной Церкви

Преосвященные собратья-архипастыри, всечестные отцы,
возлюбленные о Господе братья и сестры!

Сердечно приветствую вас с 725-летием явления чудотворного образа Божией Матери «Знамение» Коренно-Курского и 100-летием основания Высшего Церковного Управления за границей, преобразованного потом в Архиерейский Синод Русской Зарубежной Церкви. Не празднуем мы события, разрушившие все устои дореволюционной России и крайне тяжело отразившиеся на нашей дорогой Матери – Поместной Русской Православной Церкви, толкнув ее, вместе со всей страной, на путь великих страданий, репрессий, мученичества и исповедничества. Нет, мы возносим благодарность Богу, Сохранившему нас под сенью родной Веры Православной, в уставах славной Церкви Русской. (more…)
