Vadim Novinsky: Memory of all holy venerable fathers of Kiev-Pechersk

Today we remember and glorify all the holy venerable fathers of the Kiev-Pechersk. All those who became the true treasure of the most ancient monastic monastery on our land, who in the spiritual and literal sense formed its foundation.

From the numerous host of Pechersk saints, it is impossible to single out someone who would be more significant than the rest. Each of them is a good example for Orthodox Christians.

The Kiev Pechersk Lavra is not just a beautiful place, not a museum of antiquities. This is the foundation of our Christian civilization, a spiritual fortress that stood guard over the faith in those periods when the authorities and even the episcopate departed from the purity of Orthodoxy, when cruel persecution fell upon the Church and our people.

Through the intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos, who took the Holy Lavra as Her third inheritance, the monastery was preserved, despite numerous upheavals and periods of devastation. The prayers of the venerable fathers of the Kiev-Pechersk more than once saved Kyiv from various troubles.

Today our Holy Lavra is under attack again. But, despite all the oppression, injustice, lies and betrayal, it remains the living spiritual heart of Ukraine, a shrine with which the soul of our people is inextricably linked. Lavra is our guardian angel, as His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry once said.

This is the main reason for all this hatred and malice that rises again and again against our Ukrainian Orthodox Church and at the holy monastery. But no matter how the enemies of the Orthodox people slander and persecute our bishops, our priests, our brothers and sisters in faith, nothing will come of it, because everything built without God is fragile and short-lived.

The Orthodox Church is invincible and eternal because it is founded on the cornerstone, whose name is Christ. God doesn't have time. With God, everyone is alive, and therefore the earthly and heavenly Church are one. All the saints of our land are not somewhere in the past, they are always near us with their Christian love and their prayers. They are the salt of our earth. Those who will never betray and will always help. They will still say their weighty word to all the current scolders, detractors and persecutors.

And you and I, dear brothers and sisters, need to maintain unity and fidelity to our Mother Church. We need to pray a lot, repent heartily and learn, no matter what, to forgive and love everyone, as Christ commanded us.

I believe that the Lord, through the prayers of the Most Holy Theotokos and the venerable fathers of the Kiev Pechersk, will preserve the Holy Lavra, God-saved Kyiv and our God-loving people.

I cordially congratulate you all on this holiday!
