Es wurde eine feierliche Stunde mit einer ergreifenden Predigt. Im Anschluss daran fand noch ein kleines Abschiedsessen im Gasthof zur Post statt. Im Namen der Minis, Laura Seipelt. Mir fehlen die Worte, und ich bete trotzdem, gebe Antwort, ganz leise, unbeholfen. Sind das die entscheidenden Augenblicke Meines Lebens? Werner Schaube: G-online.

I found the thought rather scary that they would encourage people to stay within their cocoon. Same as in English. Let them sing it! Somehow that poem seems familiar - we had a number of books of poems when I was little, so it may have been in one of those, I suppose. I love museums. The abovementioned visit to Ditchling included buying a jigsaw puzzle of the Wonderground Map, which Son2 and I are now working on he has always loved jigsaw puzzling. Even with reading glasses I find it hard work and may have to bring a magnifying glass to the next puzzling session!
As for the cats, however, they are quite dull, really. Cute and fluffy and entertaining in the flesh, but not really the kind of cats that one could use in a bestseller of the 'my cats and I' kind. That's how I know that RD is the car registration code. But we never lived there, and only occasionally visited friends, never looking at the town itself, so I'm afraid I can't tell you whether it is worth visiting.
Norbert , those sound like eminently sensible new regulations to me. Here in GB, quite apart from the obnoxious Brexit, all I hear is sugar tax, maybe meat tax, and should children take exams before they're born, or maybe only after? Ok, that last one is an exaggeration, but not by much. I haven't read the book by Deborah Feldman, but a friend recommended it just the other day, so I'm intending to - when I've made some inroads into all the other books - oh, and I've got new bookcases in my study!
Our local bookshop is closing down, and I asked if they were selling off their furniture as well. And I got two excellent and sturdy bookcases with adjustable feet :- for a very reasonable price. And as they are deeper as well as higher than the previous bookcases, I can put some folders and other standaroundees in there as well. They have metal rails at the top into which you can slide cards with the subject matter - at the moment, these say 'picture books', but when I think of something stunningly witty and original, I may well replace them Another writer I can thoroughly recommend is Eshkol Nevo and in particular his novel Homesick.
Curious question: Is there anywhere else but Germany such an exaggerated discussion about Feinstaub?
Geburtstag : German » English | PONS
I am reading the old Newspapers of the recent days and they are all full with the dispute about fireworks and such. Is it a topic in any other country? Fireworks add fun to festivities, but they are a source of air pollution and respiratory complications.
A lot of attention has focused on the impact of fireworks and this year, as in previous years, India's Supreme Court has attempted to restrict their use. But both discussions don't keep people from having gigantic fireworks on New Year's Eve.
Chris Bambery – Spain’s Political Prisoners are the EU’s Ignominy
The Feinstaub-discussion regularly returns a short time later, this time connected to the "Streusplit" they sprinkle??? I looked up Streusplit, but Leo doesn't seem to know the word. Probably an expression that is limited to countries with very "wintery" weather conditions? I guess I should have come up with the idea of simply leaving out the "Streu" when looking up that word myself not to mention the aditional t. Well, after-festive sluggishness of mind, I suppose ;. Die Karten mit Guhgelsuchen sind erhellend. Aber in dressing-Hochburgen wie Mississippi, Alabama und Georgia dagegen, sagt man eher nicht stuffing.
In TX ist hm wohl dressing-Verzehrer. BTW, re. I have to add though that turkey or chicken with stuffing prepared either the US or the UK way is not something frequently encountered in German kitchens. But let me just say this: No danger of being lynched, because we are a notoriously peaceful mountain people. As to your final remark, I choose to ignore it, knowing that in fact everything is always a little better in Austria than in Germany - just think of the coffee!
Goldammer, you maintained one of the subjects I want to chose for my studies for teaching certification Thanks for your opinion on the trip to Chicago, hm -- us. However, I think, Amy might have a point.. I will check if I really had the opportunity to visit my host family alike if this is really what I want to do and then I will contact my guest family and ask them about a reunion in late summer Amy, thank you for the corrections and your advice, a very helpful angle of view and thought to me.
I read the same statistics as Lucy about New Year in Germany probably most Germans have heard it and it made me stop taking part in the fireworks which I did since I was very young. Since there is so much more space for associations when you have some background information about the people in the CC and much time passed by, I would really appreciate it if you would introduce yourselves again for me and the other new snails Or maybe someone undertakes the task for the others, some of the well-established snails?
I feel like I also missed this chance of lerning more about you in the past, because there is not much information left, unfortunately Last but not least, I remember that most of our American snails are teachers. I wonder if teachers are affected by the government shutdown? What an amount of contributions already in the beginning of this very young year. Racing snails! So, the new year is already running in big steps. Only 3 weeks until my son will get his Halbjahreszeugnis?! Then he will attend skiing camp, followed by another week of sports holidays and then it's only another month until he leaves us for a year to go out into the world.
His school will be in Tokyo quite close to the centre but we don't know about his guest family so far. Getting the visum will be an issue as well.

I never startet firework myself, but I like to watch it. I've found myself the one or other place beside the well known hotspots, quiet itself but offering a wide outlook. Provincia Chimaerensis, I suppose. After every earthquake in Xinjiang, worried relatives would call us from Germany. In fact, the epicentre was closer to them than to us! We have had several such houses in our neighborhood over the past few years. One was just a couple houses down the street from ours.
This is really the only way that people with low-paying jobs are able to afford living in San Jose. Just like in your case, I could never figure out how many people actually lived there, I would guess about a dozen in a sq ft house. My neighbors were mostly complaining about all the street parking being taken up by their junk cars.
I explained to them that as long as cars weren't parked in the same spot for more than 72 hours, there wasn't anything that could be done about it under San Jose's municipal code. And while the people in that house kept their front yard littered with kid's toys, chairs, etc. Curiously, there seemed to be even more cars than people! I suspected at the time that one of the inhabitants was running some sort of car repair business using the street for storage.
Most weeks I had trouble finding a spot at the curb to put out our garbage and recycling bins. I got into conversation with several of the people in the house, and all the ones I talked to turned out to be construction workers of one kind or other. At one point, I had a longer chat with one of them, a house painter from Guatemala who was out of work for two days.
He stated that he lived in the house with his Mexican wife and their small son, and that he had another teenage kid back in Guatemala, but didn't want to reveal how many people lived in the house. His English not being great, and my Spanish pretty much non-existent, it wasn't the most fluid conversation. But I casually mentioned my bin placement problem along the way, and from that time on I always had an open space at the curb in front of my house on garbage pickup day! As for fireworks: the City of San Jose provides free lawn signs that point out that sale, possession, and use of fireworks is illegal.
Various people in the neighborhood got such a sign, as did we. I put that out about two weeks ahead of Lunar New Year and July 4th. Best I can tell, the use of illegal fireworks in my neighborhood has been drastically reduced compared to five years ago. I don't know what to say. Near Xanten of all places??? Which has a population more than ten times smaller? Is there something about Xanten that makes it well-known to Americans? I'm glad someone found it and lived to tell the tale though. I just submitted my paper! I've never been to the U.
Re: fireworks: My daughter was so unsettled by her grandfather's remarks on the polluting effects of fireworks that I had to spend an hour and a half on the sofa, explaining and discussing the ecological condition of the earth. I didn't get to see much of the fireworks or drink any champagne In the preceding section, the linked article discusses the fate of a Syrian refugee woman residing in Xanten whose husband absconded with their child back to Idlib. I just spent two nights in Buxtehude near Hamburg. At the festive dinner before Christmas at my compound in Al Khobar I had met an American who talked so excitedly and lovingly about his visit to the world's largest model railway the Miniatur-Wunderland in Hamburg that I decided to visit it for the third time, with a backstage guided tour added for the first time.
People of all ages, and most of them were as happy as the swarms of kindergarten kids who were visiting in groups. Not bad for such a short time! On my last visit to Hamburg a few years ago, Mr Goldammer and I also visited the Miniatur-Wunderland and sat on the Feuerschiff a few times it was in summer and we sat there watching the sunset over the harbour - very nice places, both, I agree.
The Elbphilharmonie is replicated on the model railway. The building opens up every now and then so that visitors who most probably have not yet been able to get tickets for a concert at the original due to extreme demand can have a look at a concert en miniature Des Gutes would refer to a Gut in the sense of landed estate. There was a "Reisen spezial" issue in my Sunday newspaper. There they had an advertisement about this hotel located inside the Elbphilharmonie building.
That is not true, Edith says. Just had a look at their website - depending on the date the rates can be much lower. Do you still enjoy the German Story Tellers or do you curse me for the recommendation? We needed a break after Vol. We switched to something easier instead, two books I got last year. Then I somehow lost his trace until we read an article last year about his new book. I know what you mean about the difficulty to read those long verschwurbelte sentences out. We started with Friedrich Hebbel: Aus meiner Jugend.
It is a bit of a difficult switch from a simply written but adventurous story about Francis Drake, and Mr Goldammer isn't sure yet if he can like it. We'll see. If it doesn't work, we'll find something else. If the tax officers are true to their image, they will take your money even if you write a B. Here we heard a chanson concert - very nice atmosphere but the singer had no idea in heaven or hell what she was singing! In Brussels!! I just finished The Harder They Come, and just found it bleak and sad.
I've got When the Killing's Done flying around somewhere, but right now don't feel much like reading it. I also once read an interview with him in which he came across as a weird, misogynic person, and it made me like his novels less, unfortunately. In my youth, I developed the theory that one should abstract the artist from their art because people are so often dislikeable or flawed even if they make beautiful things, and one should be allowed to enjoy the beauty nonetheless.
I find it hard to stick to that sometimes, though. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for that cheque! I'm the figurehead for the Abofalle is there an English word for that? A rather boring plot, imho. Thank you for the corrections, hm — us. I was surprised: Are cheque still in use in the States? Payments by check were stopped in or so.
I studied in Hamburg in the olden days, but have only been back for brief visits - to the Miniatur-Wunderland on one occasion. And although I still think of Miniatur-Wunderland as a new attraction, this is also a while ago, as Son1 was noticeably smaller then than he is now. RenaRd , you can't go wrong with Gernhard. The man was a genius - every time I pick up a book I must have more of his - need to look in the attic at some point; maybe I can squeeze some into my abovementioned spacious bookcases I'm amused and delighted. And thank you for reminding me of Der Geisterseher; I read that a long time ago but have no recollection And summse , how annoying to have to pay for a Bahncard you're not really going to use.
Not sure if there is a term like Abofalle in English although subscription trap sounds understandable. I sometimes wonder about keeping the artist and his or her work separate. It can be very difficult. Son2 used to read a lot of Roald Dahl, but when he found out what an unpleasant character Dahl really was, he decided to stop reading the books. At his last clearout, they ended up on the 'out' pile, but Mr J is attached to them many of them were his when he was little and insisted on keeping them all the same. I don't know if I would give away books I was fond of if I found out that I disapproved of the author's character, views or personal life.
I haven't got anything by Dickens, and would probably read something if I had to, but I'm really repelled by the way he treated his first wife, for instance - so I'm unlikely to buy his books and enjoy them, because they would leave a bad aftertaste, somehow. On the third hand as it were there are lots of books I read without knowing anything much about the author at all. Beautiful language. OK: the leftpondian snails might be catatonic because of the shutdown.
And the Brits, long time no see, are struggling with the exit of the Brexit. But where are the Austrian, German, and Swiss snails in alphabetic order? Are they all gone for skiing? If so: Come on in and share your adventures. At least one Austrian isn't skiing, just sitting at the desk and correcting the last test papers for this semester. No adventures to share,though, I'm sorry. I'm just writing so that poor RenaRd doesn't feel too lonely.
Right now, I am sitting on the sofa, my husband beside me watching football, rams versus saints, and I have no clue. Either a couple of men are standing around on the field useless, waiting for something to happen, who knows what. Or they jump upon the poor guy that happens to have the bad luck to be in possession of this orange egg. Every two minutes commercial break. And also three guys talking about what is going on to people that understand everything. I don't. In any case, I woke up shortly before 6 a. So I went to the loo instead and back to bed again.
Today we breakfasted with the lights turned off, as the then current phase of the eclipse could be seen from our kitchen window. When I woke up this morning I did remember about the blood moon, but couldn't see anything from the window so thought maybe it's overcast. After a while, more awake, I realised it wasn't overcast so I went outside and did see the last smidgen of blood red, but the moon was already very low in the sky.
Turning slightly I could se Venus with another bright star pretty much exactly beneath it - having looked it up I'm assuming it was Jupiter. Apparently they will have a conjuction tomorrow morning but the forecast is pouring rain, so I'm unlikely to see them then. I've had a very pleasant weekend, although not really any adventures. It did, however, include a museum visit: this time to see the 'new', or rather redesigned, Islamic galleries at the British Museum. They are beautiful and thoughtfully laid out, I thought - and they are less crowded than pretty much everywhere else in the Museum, it seems.
Afterwards we met fellow Leonid Chaja and wandered around many more London streets, all of them surprisingly crowded, I thought, for a distinctly chilly January Saturday, and finally had dinner in Chinatown. All in all I clocked up more than 23, steps that day - no wonder my feet were rather sore as we walked home from the station.
Yesterday we were invited to a birthday party - a 'new friend' turned 60, so it was very nice of her to invite us! Lots of lovely food and drink, many interesting people to chat to, and charming grandchildren to look at RenaRd , don't get me started on Brexit I've worried and fretted so much, and every day the news say something else, and the Government still has no clue what they actually want, let alone how to accomplish it I don't know how I would react if I found that the author of one of my favourite books was in fact in some way a truly terrible person. As in, not merely a hypocrite especially where women are concerned, as in the case of Dickens or, to some extent, Conan Doyle.
But in the case of authors it does depend on the kind of book they write. I shall try and give some thought to visual artists and composers. I really don't like Julius Caesar as a person, but I have no qualms about reading his writings She's one of the great people I met through Leo, and it is unforgettable how she hosted me and my two teenage sons during the Deutsche Evangelische Kirchentag in - without even having seen me ever before!
She was away for the days when the Kirchentag took place, and she let us use her flat. She came back very late on Saturday night, we "met" at breakfast on Sunday, and she cooked us a lovely lunch later on before our train trip back home. Oh, I didn't realise it was you in the Kirchentag-story! Chaja told me about it at our first meeting some years ago - she had offered to go shopping in Cologne before coming to London.
Of course that was an offer I couldn't refuse :- and I've come to rely on her as a tireless importer of continental chocolates, vitamins, toothpaste and other essentials. So when she comes to London she always hands over a large bagful of goodies, and then we go wandering and looking at whatever comes our way.
Nice to read that you also saw Venus and - as we also assumed - together with Jupiter, Jabonah. I woke up sometimes early in the morning and realised clouds - but they were very thin so the moon could shine through. It had a little shadow on its left side. At least, a little bit of eclipse.

Wie geht's denn weiter, RenaRd.. Kommentar Vielen Dank auch von mir. Minute war niemals nie ein Elfmeter. Oh well. Die erste Halbzeit war nicht schlecht, oder? Kommentar I only saw the last 15 minutes - coming back from choir rehearsal. Kommentar hm-us No. Since years I have been taking offence that our nemesis Griezmann is entitled to play for France. He is of German origin from his father's side, of Portuguese from his mother's, and he was born in Burgundy which historically is neither France nor Germany but should make him eligible to play for Belgium as legal successor to the middle empire of Charlemagne's grandson Lothair.

We may think de facto media censorship is only happening in places like Russia, Hungary, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, or Venezuela. But in the US, it's already right here in our midst. Since so many people seem to be having trouble accessing US-based links following the EU data privacy decision, I have tried to include enough quotes to give the gist of the story while remaining well within 'fair use' criteria, citing only short excerpts from a very long article.
In some cases, anchors have been compelled to read from scripts prepared by Sinclair. This is extremely dangerous to our democracy. A slippery slope to how despots wrest power, silence dissent, and oppress the masses. With advertising siphoned away by online platforms, dozens of newspapers have closed, leaving many towns with limited or no local coverage.
Es ist eine Freude, dass bereits wieder seit 15 Jahren in der Maria Himmelfahrtskathedrale Gottesdienste gefeiert werden, dass sie wieder eine Patriarchatskathedrale unserer Heiligen Kirche geworden ist. Wir haben in Oslo eine orthodoxe Kirche, in der unsere Landleute geistig gebildet werden, Orthodoxe, die in der norwegischen Hauptstadt leben.
Ich glaube, dass dies ein sehr gutes Beispiel einer Zusammenarbeit ist, dem man folgen sollte, das man in den Beziehungen zwischen den Kirchen aufgreifen sollte. Heute haben viele der Anwesenden die Kommunion empfangen. Ich gratuliere ihnen allen zum Empfang des Leibes Christi. Zuerst im Das Original der Ikone wurde aus Kasan geraubt und man nahm damals an, dass es vernichtet wurde. Maria Himmelfahrt ist einer der beliebtesten und hochverehrtesten Feiertage in Russland.
August um 10 Uhr morgens findet eine feierliche Liturgie statt. In vielen Kirchen Russlands wird auch der Ritus der Grablegung der Allerheiligsten Gottesmutter zelebriert, bei dem das Grabtuch mit der Darstellung der Allerheiligsten Gottesmutter rund um die Kirche getragen wird. Es gibt sowohl ekklesiologische als auch zahlreiche psychologische Hindernisse.
Ein ernsthaftes Hindernis in der Frage der christlichen Einheit waren in der Zeit des Jahrhunderts die damals stattgefundenen Versuche einer gewaltsamen Hinwendung der Orthodoxen zum Katholizismus mithilfe der Union.

I think that you are right that there are two opposed forms of Christianity in the modern world and that they have little to do with one another. First there is 'liberalism', which bears no resemblance to the ancient Church or the Apostolic Faith: it is characterized by 'liberality' concerning doctrine and denies the dogmatic basis of Christianity, alleging that dogmas were added to the primitive Christian Faith by the Church Fathers and that they have little to do with the simple teaching of Jesus, who taught, in a vague kind of way, the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of Man.
There is little that is truly liberal about it, in the sense of being interested in intellectual freedom, as one soon learns when one challenges the ideology of liberalism intellectually. Far from a calm debate, as one might expect in the tradition of liberal humanism, one must be prepared to be called 'bigoted', a 'campaigner' or even a 'fundamentalist. It was and is the religion of the middle-aged and the middle-classes, of nice people who have the wealth and security to contemplate the modern world with complacency.
Such people like adventures with ideas, stimulating discussions, discussions, that is, that stimulate them to yet further discussion.

They will lecture you on the importance of having an open mind. Liberals often say that liberalism will be more attractive to the young. Actually this is the view of the middle-aged or the genteelly-ageing about what the young might want. Second there is dogmatic religion: what characterizes Protestant Evangelicalism and the Roman Catholic Church.
We share their outlook about the importance of truth first and unity only in terms of truth. However, the historic dogmatic differences do remain. In this respect, we are no further on than before the modern Ecumenical Movement was born. You are right, Bishop Hilarion, to see intercommunion and agreement of belief and praxis to be vitally connected. This is always the sticking point of modern Ecumenism. There is a division between those who, along with the ancient Church, would not admit to Communion any one who did not profess the same belief - and, on the other hand, those who argue that promiscuous sharing communion despite dogmatic differences will, as if by magic, achieve the desired-for unity.
Now, however, Orthodoxy is very much on the scene in W. Orthodoxy teaches the Apostolic faith in its purity. Its dogmas are few, compared with Catholicism or the various Reformed Protestant bodies and it has not added to the Faith of the early Church as set down in the Creeds. Its faith may be demonstrated to a great extent from Scripture. Most important, its dogmas are to be lived out in its spirituality. Its Theology is practical in the sense of being concerned with living the life in Christ under the influence of the Holy Spirit.
It has retained monasticism and monastic theologians. Its liturgy has been, on the whole, unmarked by the disastrous liturgical modernizations which have repelled so many traditionalist believers everywhere and driven them out of their Churches. But we are not making progress, in the re-christianization of Europe, despite the great advantages of a pure Faith. Why is this? I suggest that it is because liberalism has started creeping into the Orthodox Church. Converts have not been properly prepared to join a rigorous Church which demands sacrifice. Priests have not been trained in Orthodox Theology, nor has their suitability been given enough thought.
Ordinations take place in direct infringement of the Canons of the Church, without any good reason for the exercise of 'economy. Rather than selling their goods and starting again, they have brought their shop-soiled wares into the Orthodox Church and are passing them around. This is why there is so much talk of 'relevance', 'modernity' and 'the Church of the Future' rather than of truth, asceticism, holiness and Tradition. Consequently, Orthodox people who are serious about the kind of Orthodoxy which you, Bishop Hilarion, describe, must be prepared for a battle even in their own local Churches or Dioceses.
The true spirit of dogma, that is, dogma lived in experience by a holy life, will be impossible if the agenda is a kind of 'liberal Orthodoxy. In their struggle for faith, Orthodox people look to their Hierarchs, to the monastics and especially to the Hegumens of monasteries to uphold the faith without compromise and to support the people in their struggle, - a counter-cultural struggle against a culture of greed and pride. I believe that, in general, the Hierarchs of the Orthodox Church in Western countries are letting down their people and the Orthodox Faith, whilst monasteries, traditionally the engine-room of the Church, from whom dispassionate and holy Bishops could be called, are few.
The Bishops do not speak with one voice. Rivalries between jurisdictions are ugly and plain for all to see. Bishops openly express their ambitions and play Church-politics to the scandal of the laity. Some hierarchs are even on the side of a liberal agenda: it may be a pale shadow of Liberal Protestantism but it is still the spirit of the wrong kind of compromise.
It is a great mistake to think that a religion will not grow if it demands sacrifices. If Orthodoxy is the truth, it is the smart move to give one's life for it. If it is advocated in a lukewarm manner, it will not make converts, it will not grow into the full measure of the stature of Christ. It will go the way of all flesh - and that is what theological liberalism is: a human way of thinking about Christianity which is prepared to accommodate Tradition to the ways of the world.
For some reason, the friend who prints out the Europaica Bulletin for me did not receive No 39 on time. In this article I failed to see his point in mentioning the Hellenistic gymnasium in connection with the head-covering of Moslem women. The gymnasium and Pan-Hellenic Games had ceased to exist centuries before the Moslem religion made its appearance in history, and in any case, the gymnasium was for men only. As well as satisfying the Greek ideal of a healthy mind in a healthy body, it kept men fit and prepared for the almost constant wars among the Greek City States, as well as wars against outside enemies.
The training was severe in the extreme. In fact our English word 'agony' comes from the Greek word for the struggle involved in the games. Women, on the other hand, were expected to stay at home, see to the efficient running of the household, retire to their own quarters when their husbands entertained guests to dinner, and generally keep quiet.
Doubtless the ancient Greeks would have been in agreement with those who fought on both sides of the battle of Lepanto concerning the public position and behaviour of women. It may well be true, as he suggests, that the French controversy on the wearing of headscarves by Moslem girls in schools and also, I believe, the wearing of Christian crosses together with the present immodest fashions in women's dress in the West, springs from an 'atheist-religion', which wishes to pit itself against every memory of the sacred. Perhaps it might also be true to say that the instinctive covering of the body in most cultures goes back well beyond the Judaeo-Christian ethic and reflects some kind of deem universal memory of the Garden of Eden and the Fall of Man.
Mention was made in the article of the Nazis forcing the Jews to wear the yellow Star of David. Let us not forget the Serbian Orthodox Christians forced by the Croau Ustashi - the allies of the Nazis - to wear armbands with the letter P, standing for Pravoslav, Orthodox. Three quarters of a million Orthodox Serbs would be exterminated by the Ustashi.
In our present Western society, religious symbols and clothing are worn for a variety of reasons - from conviction, as part of a religious 'uniform', as a fasion symbol, because of superstition, as a means of drawing attention to oneself, to give a feeling of reassurance that comes from belonging to a group, and so on.
The wearing of headscarves or completely covering garments will not, of itself, make girls and women pious Moslems, any more than the wearing of a cross will make the wearer a devout Christian. It is what goes on in the heart that matters, and that surely is what counts with God. Without an inner commitment to live according to the Laws of God both the head-covering and the cross will be worn in vain.
The Vatican that day was celebrating the Holy Father's saint's name day, the feast of St. Charles Borromeo. On that same day in Russia, the Orthodox Church was celebrating the feast day of the Kazan icon of the Mother of God, one of the most revered icons in Russian history.
Although the Holy Father had previously met Putin and had met with countless heads of state during the 25 years of his pontificate, this meeting included a unique aspect. At the beginning of the meeting, the Holy Father requested that an icon of Our Lady be brought from his personal apartment to be present during the meeting. When the icon was brought into the room, the Pope blessed the icon, kissed it, and showed it to President Putin, who also kissed it. For the duration of the minute meeting, the icon remained in a place of honor between the chairs of the Russian president and the Pope.
The icon was a beautiful image of Our Lady of Kazan. This extraordinary gesture confirms the great attachment that the Holy Father has for this icon. For the past ten years, the Pope has done much of his work and writing in front of this icon. I often see it when I go to the Holy Father's office: it is, precisely, in front of the desk of the Pope, who venerates it with particular devotion.
Although there is no dispute that the Holy Father has a great devotion to this icon, the Russian Orthodox Church in recent statements has downplayed the importance of the Holy Father's icon. In a meeting with British journalists on January 20, , Patriarch Aleksy of Moscow and All Russia stated: "On April 1, , an authoritative commission made up of specialists from the Russian Ministry of Culture and experts from the Vatican, having examined the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God kept in the Pope of Rome's domestic chapel [ actually usually kept in the Pope's private study ], came to a unanimous conclusion that this icon was one of the numerous copies, made in the 18th century by a provincial icon-painter after the early 17th-late 18th pattern.
Neither its size, nor its artistic manner suggests that this icon can be identified with the historically famous, miracle-working icon that appeared in in Kazan. Almost every Orthodox church necessarily has a copy of this icon venerated by the people of God. The icon in the Vatican belongs to this series, and there is nothing sensational in this fact. However, he emphasized that the return of the icon must be kept separate from the subject of a possible papal visit to Russia. The Patriarch's desire to keep the issue of the return of the icon separate from the issue of a papal visit is not surprising.
The issue of a papal visit is a difficult one for the Russian Orthodox Church because many Orthodox in Russia are not ecumenically inclined and retain an anti-Catholic animus that dates back centuries to the struggles between Catholic Poland and Orthodox Russia. There may also be a tendency by the Russian Orthodox Church to understate the importance of the Holy Father's icon because of the disputes that presently exist between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church in Russia.
However, the past tendency of the Russian Orthodox Church to downplay the significance of the icon does not mean that the Patriarch's remarks about the commission were incorrect. During the week of March 31 - April 4, , a commission established by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation did in fact examine the Holy Father's Kazan icon at the Vatican. The impetus to establish the commission came from the Russian government and not from the Russian Orthodox Church.
There is reason to believe that President Putin, who is anxious that the dispute in Russia between Orthodox and Catholics be resolved, was personally involved in its establishment. The city of Kazan was represented on the commission by Dmitri Khafizov, a historian from Kazan, and the Russian Orthodox Church was represented by Sergei Kravets, the head of the "Orthodox Encyclopedia" research center in Moscow.
Much of the surface of the Holy Father's icon is covered by a rizza consisting of precious metal, pearls, and jewels. In the examination, the commission was allowed to remove the rizza and to examine the entire painted surface of the icon. After a careful examination, the commission concluded that the Holy Father's icon was neither the lost Kazan icon from the city of Kazan nor the lost Kazan icon from Kazan Cathedral on Red Square in Moscow.
It matched the dimensions of neither of these famous icons. Furthermore, the painting style of the Holy Father's icon indicated that it was painted in the middle of the s as opposed to the late s. On Wednesday, April 2, the members of the commission met with the Holy Father immediately after his Wednesday general audience. The commission also paid great respect to the Holy Father's icon by participating in a service where the Akathist, the ancient hymn of the Eastern Church in honor of Our Lady, was sung before the icon.
Although the commission's findings are disappointing, they do not mean that the Holy Father's icon lacks spiritual significance. Prior to the examination of the icon, the city of Kazan, which is celebrating in the millennium of its founding, was extremely anxious that the Holy Father's icon be given to the city. After the examination, the city of Kazan has continued to desire the icon, and Dmitri Khafizov, the representative of Kazan on the commission, has continued to work tirelessly to obtain the icon for the city.
The city has informed the Vatican that if the icon is given to the city, the city will reconstruct the destroyed convent church where the original icon was kept for many years. From the Catholic perspective, the very fact that the Holy Father has done so much of his work before this icon and has such a great devotion to it, in itself, makes this icon very spiritually significant.
Still, the mystery remains as to the identity of the Holy Father's icon. Certain facts are known, but other questions remain. There is, however, an interesting theory suggested by Natalia Chugreeva, an art historian in Moscow, that should be further explored. If this theory is correct, the Holy Father's icon is in fact an important one in the spiritual history of Russia.
Before discussing this theory, it would be helpful to provide certain known facts concerning the original icon and the Holy Father's icon. The original icon of Our Lady of Kazan was found in by a ten-year-old girl, Matrona, who discovered the icon under the ashes of a burnt house in Kazan.
The Mother of God had appeared to Matrona and told her to dig at that location. Shortly after the discovery of the icon, its miracle-working nature was confirmed when two blind men, Josif and Nikita, had their sight restored by the icon.
