The Lord is with us. What more could we desire? The Lord created man that we might live and bask in Him for ever – that we might be with Him and in Him. And the Lord desires to be with us Himself, and in us. The Lord is our joy and gladness, and when pride causes us to withdraw from Him, it means that of our own accord we deliver ourselves up to suffering. Anguish of heart, dejection and evil thoughts lacerate us. - St. Silouan the Athonite

One of the nine chapels and meant to be the tallest building within the St. Basil’s Cathedral. A symbolic Orthodox Church in a state of solemn. 莫斯科享負盛名的聖巴索大教堂由九個不同的教堂組成。而最高的一座教堂就是站中中央仰望之景。 #tra#travelo #architecture #saintbasilscathedral #tourist #history #moscow #russia #travelblogger #travel #travelrussia #yikbook #redsquare #orthodoxchristian #travelphotography #europe #cityphotography #travelvibes #russiavibe #russiaphotography #hktravelblogger #俄羅斯 #環遊世界 #奕書 #奕書遊世界 #旅拍 #旅遊達人 #文化 #建築 #紅牆 #信仰

Lazarus Saturday starts tonight, then Palm Sunday, for Orthodox Christians. (This year, our Easter is on 28/Apr). Between tonight and 28/Apr, we'll have ~34 hours of services, contemplating what our God suffered for the sake of our salvation. See you in church! ^_^ . Shoutout to @thesimpsons - in-universe, this is very well done!

"[On what young husbands should say to their wives:] I have taken you in my arms, and I love you, and I prefer you to my life itself. For the present life is nothing, and my most ardent dream is to spend it with you in such a way that we may be assured of not being separated in the life reserved for us... I place your love above all things, and nothing would be more bitter or painful to me than to be of a different mind than you." -St John Chrysosthom
