13 Sermons In The Frost

Sermons In The Frost

Posted on April 3, 2013 by kulichik

The firemen are never asleep.

The Holy Father is lighting up oil lamps.

He is getting ready for prayers.

The first church people have come.

The preparation of the Eucharist bread and wine.

During Mass women were standing on the left.

Men were standing on the right.

There is no electricity here and priests use candles to read a prayer.

Now it is time for a sermon.

Due to the lack of the icon-stand first prayers are read and then priests and laypeople take the communion. As soon as the icon-stand is ready priests will make communion separately from other people as this is the common rule.

When Mass was over some people wanted the priest to answer the questions they had and give them a piece of advice. This Book of Psalms in the picture is written in the Yakutsk language.

    @Besim Bektas : that simple. On northern areas people need to stay fat – because of the frost/harsh winter time.
    You could also answer yourselfs why polar bears or penguins are fat. It’s moreless the same

    What I’m really interested is why people in southern countries are fat:)

    There is no god.

  6. George says:

    It doesn’t matter if there is no God or if there is, religion can give good guidlines on how to conduct yourself. Rather than being some neihlist asshole.

    Is this place close to where they dropped the Tzar Bomba in the 1960s?

  11. aldebaran says:

    That salty fish looks horrible, but… one is not allowed to eat fish during Lent in the East Orthodox faith, at least not in the Greek style orthodoxy. It’s interesting there are soldiers even in a small and remote place like this…
    And much like in the rural USofA, many people wear camouflage gear.
