  • The Second Sunday after Pentecost, at the Metropolitan Cathedral in Chisinau

    Today, more than ever, Christ is calling us to repentance, calling us to come to church, urges us to make good acts that bring the joy of salvation. Each of us should open his heart to God and His Gospel, to a more refined Christian life, in purity and holiness.

    (Archimandrite Cleopa Ilie)

    On the Second Sunday after Pentecost, His Eminence Metropolitan Vladimir celebrated the Divine Liturgy in the Nativity of the Lord Metropolitan Cathedral in Chisinau.

    The fragment of the Holy Gospel read out on this Sunday speaks about the calling of the first four Apostles to ministry. There were many ships with Galilean fishermen on the sea, but Lord Jesus called only some of them. He called them to divine mission, to be witnesses of the Resurrection, to be apostles and preachers of the Holy Gospel “to the margins of the world”. He called them from a fisher’s boat to the ship of salvation. From the boat of earthly worries and concerns, to the vessel of the Holy Ghost that is the Church established by Christ.

    During the service, the Metropolitan and the clergy, as well as the lay church-goers, uttered prayers for the repose of our ever-commemorated co-national, priest Alexey Mateevici, illuminator of our nation and author of the verses of the national Anthem of the Republic of Moldova. The poem “Limba Noastra” (Our language) was first published a little over 100 years ago.

    In the end of the service, following the thanks-giving prayers, the church-goers received archpastoral blessings and guidance, to leave for their homes in peace and uttering hopes for the inheritance of the Heavenly Kingdom.
