Sfantul Ierarh Calinic de la Cernica este praznuit pe 11 aprilie. Sfantul Ierarh Calinic de la Cernica a fost unul din marii "parinti duhovnicesti" ai veacului al XIX-lea. Viata lui este descrisa pe larg de unul din numerosii lui "ucenici", arhimandritul Anastasie Baldovin. S-a nascut la Bucuresti, la 7 octombrie 1787, in familia bunilor credinciosi Antonie si Floarea (calugarita, spre batranete, la manastirea Pasarea, sub numele Filoteia). La varsta potrivita, a fost dat la invatatura la una din scolile care existau pe atunci in Bucuresti, in preajma unei biserici, poate la Coltea sau la Sfantul Gheorghe. Atmosfera de rugaciune si aleasa viata crestina din familie au influentat mult viata launtrica a tanarului Constantin, cum se numea din botez. De aceea, in martie 1807, deci inainte de-a fi implinit varsta de 20 de ani, si-a indreptat pasii spre manastirea Cernica, din apropierea Bucurestilor, unde va fi venit adeseori,

Staunton, April 5 – Twenty-one of Russia’s more than 80 federal subjects showed an increase in population between 2018 and 2020, but in 17 of these, the increase came not from births over deaths of the indigenous population but from in-migration. Only four – Chechnya, Ingushetia, Daghestan and Tyva – grew mostly by having more births than deaths. Those figures were presented in a new report by the Moscow Institute of Demography, Migration, and Regional Development which also noted that four federal subjects had not changed in size at all, while 44 saw their populations decline (capost.media/views/tolko-v-chechne-ingushetii-dagestane-i-tyve-naselenie-uvelichilos-za-schet-rozhdaemosti/). All the losers and most of those whose population remained unchanged were predominantly ethnic Russian oblasts and krays that could not attract migrants in sufficient number to make up for the deficit in births

Sarbatoarea Buna Vestire este praznuita pe 25 martie. Buna Vestire inseamna veste buna, anume instiintarea Maicii Domnului de catre Arhanghelul Gavriil, ca Dumnezeu a ales-o ca Fiul Sau sa se intrupeze din ea pentru mantuirea neamului omenesc. Este cea mai importanta veste din istorie, pentru ca vesteste ca umanitatea nu este pentru moarte. Cuvantul ingerului nu este vestirea unui fapt implinit, el doar a instiintat-o pe Fecioara si a asteptat credinta si invoirea ei. Maica Domnului ramane uimita in fata cuvintelor rostite de inger, pentru ca ceea ce urma sa se petreaca cu ea, era mai presus de legea firii. Din acest motiv intreaba: "Cum va fi aceasta, de vreme ce eu nu stiu de barbat?". Insa, dupa ce ingerul ii comunica modul zamislirii minunate - "Duhul Sfant se va cobori peste tine si puterea Celui Prea Inalt te va umbri", Fecioara a grait: "Iata roaba Domnului, fie mie dupa cuvantul tau" (Luca 1:38). In acel moment

Staunton, March 21 – Soviet anecdotes are making a comeback in Putin’s Russia because they reflect the fact that in all too many cases, the situation has not changed from 50 years ago. As such, in presenting a selection of them, Maximonline says, “this is already no laughing matter” (maximonline.ru/humor/sovetskie-anekdoty-kotorye-snova-stali-aktualny-id614356/). Below is a selection of the Moscow magazine’s choices: · A boy asks his grandmother whether Lenin was good. She replies that he was. Then he asks if Stalin was bad, and she responds that he was. Then he asks whether the current leader is good or bad. She says that we’ll all learn that after he dies. · What is the most constant thing in the Soviet Union/Russia? Temporary difficulties. · One prisoner asks another what sentence did they give you? The latter replies 25 years. For what, his cellmate continues. “For nothing,” the latter replies. You’re lying,
