Ever since the mid-nineties with the blessing of the priest, I began to organize pilgrimages.Ten years ago one of the friends asked, "And you make a pilgrimage to the Crimea?This is an amazing, mysterious and beautiful place!There's so much going on healing, and it is not only sea and air medical.Be sure to go to the Crimea. "I immediately start gathering information.The results shocked me.
Christianity appeared on the Crimean land in the I century.Disciple of Jesus Andrew arrived by boat in the Bosporus (modern Kerch), and from there went to preach in Feodosiya, and then in Hersonissos.
Nowadays, Hersonissos is a suburb of Sevastopol.Its ancient streets suited to the water's edge.Over 170 years of archaeological research in the territory of the ancient city opened nearly 100 ancient Christian churches and 20 monasteries.Hersonissos included among the 150 most important ancient monuments, where he is on a par with those wonders of the world, as the Egyptian pyramids, the Parthenon in Athens, the Roma
in '94 by the Roman Emperor in the Crimea, in particular, in Inkerman quarry (now a suburb of Sevastopol) for his preaching was exiled to St Clement.Here he continued his godly mission of spreading the teachings of Christ.For many years he worked St Clement, overcoming heat, hunger and unbearable suffering.
working in the quarries suffered from a lack of fresh water.And the prayer of the saint scored source.Now this place has turned into a small lake, the water of which is considered curative.
Inkerman monastery carved into the rock and is located on the very spot where once worked convicts Christians.In soft rocks you can see the small cells of hermits.For rock - the most sacred lake.Come from different parts of the world, pilgrims dip into its healing waters, asking for help from the Holy Martyr Clement.A part of the holy relics of the martyr kept in Inkerman monastery.
our group of pilgrims traveled almost the entire Crimea, the entire coast in two weeks.We visited ancient temples and monasteries, dipped in holy springs, climbed mountains, visited the vigil.And of course, every day we bathed in the sea.
already on the way home, I heard some talking about healings that have occurred to them.
One woman approaching retirement age told me that for several years it has greatly hurt the waist, and after a visit to the holy spring in the Cosmo-Damian monastery (in the Crimean reserve near Alushta) on the same day in the evening, she realized that the severity and back pain have been.
man forty years after injuries sustained in the accident, suffered pains in the head and knees.He plunged into the sacred spring in Toplovsky convent (p. Topolevka Belogorsk district).When popped up, his head, he said, as if burned, and the next day felt improvement.
Someone gets healed by taking a dip in the holy spring, and someone with all your heart prayed at the relics of the saint, receives help in everyday problems.And these stories very much.
Such travel we do now every year.To participate in the pilgrimage does not matter, people regularly goes to church, or even just interested.It is important that he wants to join the church, to learn something, and the rest of the LORD will build.
