Today, Orthodox Christians celebrate one of the main church holidays – Christmas. The temples are decorated in a special way, the clergy in light clothes.
Due to the pandemic, this time it was necessary to limit the number of parishioners. The solemn service in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior looked unusual. Instead of the usual five thousand people, there were only 350 that night.
The patriarch addressed the believers. He reminded once again how important it is to show mercy, care and love for others in this difficult time.
