Stille Zaterdag 2015: Oproep uit Oekraïne

Verslag conferentie over de Oekraïne, 5 april 2015, Fraterklooster, Tilburg

Kerken spreken zich juridisch en politiek uit, niet christelijk, volgens dr. Cyril Hovorun. Seculiere organisaties spreken zich humanitair uit, niet juridisch en politiek. De omgekeerde wereld, volgens Hovorun. 

Kerkleiders kijken de andere kant op en zwijgen met als gevolg dat kerken leden verliezen in Oekraïne.

Dr. Lydia Lozova vertelde daarentegen een indrukwekkend verhaal over een priester in Kiev die op lokaal niveau veel werk verricht voor hulpbehoevende parochianen en andere slachtoffers van de oorlog.

Thirty icons from the Andrei Rublev Museum in the Netherlands

Andrei Rublev (1360-ca.1420) was one of the nine persons and the first icon painter sanctified by the Russian Orthodox Church in 1988. He was canonised during a solemn ceremony in the Trinity-H. Sergius Monastery in Sergiev Posad, where Rublev lived and worked for several years.[i] 
In 1982, Irina Vasilevna Vatiginoi was commissioned to create the first icon of the saint for the occasion by the Holy Synod. Although there is no way to verify if the image she crafted looked like him, the inscription confirms that the saint depicted in the icon is Andrei Rublev.

Icons of Father Robert de Caluwé, Else Steenbergen, Mona Winter and Kees van Veen – Jubilee exhibition Eikonikon

'That which is of major importance to the churches separately is shared by them in common' (Father Robert de Caluwé)
In 1939, Robert de Caluwé (Sas van Ghent, 1914-2005, Myllyjärvi) was ordained a Roman Catholic priest in the Byzantine rite at the Russicum after studying theology and philosophy at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. Although initially his plan was to support farm labourers and persecuted Christians in communist Russia, he was sent to Finland and spent the remainder of his life there.
