Great Patriotic War miracles — on conscience of those who trust in them


Great Patriotic War miracles — on conscience of those who trust in them
The widespread legend says: at the end of 1941 in the heat of Fight for Moscow by order of Stalin over the city the course has been made "air God" — the capital was flown by the plane with the Virgin's icon and by that has saved the city. It is known also of other religious miracles which have allegedly occurred in days of the Second World War among which — Matrona of Moscow's prophecy which has sounded during the meeting with Stalin and a special role of the Kazan icon of the Mother of God in defense of Leningrad and the Battle of Stalingrad. Naturally, in the Soviet historiography about all this wasn't – and there couldn't be mentions. So from where we know about miracles in days of the Great Patriotic War today? And why one believe in them, and others deny? In the late USSR in a samizdat the stories about the Great Patriotic War entitled "The Kazan icon of the Mother of God – blessing of Russia and to St. Petersburg" or "Miracles from the Kazan icon of the Mother of God" went. Their authorship remained to unknown up to the beginning of the 90th, but after the crash of the Union it has become clear that an originator was the archpriest Vasily Shvets. Since 1993 these stories have become widely known, having entered the collection "Russia before the Second Coming" of the orthodox journalist and the writer Sergey Fomin.

If everything that is defined, isn't executed, Russia will die". "Temples, monasteries, spiritual academies and seminaries have to be open in all country. Priests have to be returned from fronts and prisons, have to begin to serve. Now prepare for delivery of Leningrad — it is impossible to hand over — the Virgin has allegedly told. – Let will take out a wonder-working icon of the Kazan Mother of God and will enclose it with a religious procession around the city, then any enemy won't set foot on his Holy Land. It is the chosen city. Before the Kazan icon it is necessary to make a prayer in Moscow; then she has to be in Stalingrad which can't be handed over to the enemy. The Kazan icon has to go with troops to borders of Russia. When war terminates, Eli's metropolitan has to arrive to Russia and tell about how she has been saved". "The lord — continues Shvets — has contacted representatives of the Russian Church, with the Soviet government and has given them everything that has been defined … Stalin has summoned the metropolitan Leningrad Alexy (Simansky), the locum tenens of a patriarchal throne of the metropolitan Sergiya (Stragorodsky) and promised to execute everything that was transferred by Eli's metropolitan because didn't see more than any opportunity to save situation.
