A miracle is the birth of Jesus. Here, in the very heart of the monastery, is the very cave and everyone who witnessed the birth of Christ. The place where the baby Jesus was born is indicated by the Star of Bethlehem – a symbol of the Nativity of Christ.
The joy of meeting after a long separation. Believers are in no hurry to leave after the service. In the courtyard of the temple, they slowly walk and even strangers congratulate each other and wish good and light.
To offer prayers on this night means to calm the soul, to hear your neighbor. Someone came here for the first time today. As the nuns say, this is no coincidence. Free will directed to God is a person’s calling to serve and pray.
Right after the celebration of the Nativity of Christ, Christmastide begins. They will last until January 17th. This is a time of fun and good deeds. After that, the Orthodox will begin Great Lent.
