A UOC parishioner: I call everyone to Lavra. Come, we will pray together!
The believer expressed confidence that access to the Lavra caves will be resumed.
A participant of the service near the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra on 8 December 2023 in his commentary to "Pershy Kozatsky" called on the UOC believers to join the daily prayer standing near the walls of the monastery.
According to him, he tries to come to the Lavra at least twice a week.
"The Lord pleased so that somewhere since 2015, almost every Thursday we with the brethren would go down to the Far Caves, and there was a prayer service," said the believer. "And then the whole week went so well! My favourite saint there is Arseny the Hardworking, he helped me all the time. Now I can't go to the caves, but nevertheless, coming to the Lavra, I feel constant prayerful help, I get a huge boost of energy."
The parishioner noted that now he misses praying at the relics of the Holy Cave Fathers and expressed confidence that access to the Lavra caves would be resumed.
"I urge everyone to come and pray to our saints. Despite the fact that the access there is closed, the Lord will manage so that we will return and pray to my beloved Arseny, and Abrahamy the Labourer, and all our beloved saints of Pechersk Lavra after a while," the believer said.
"I call everyone to the Lavra. Come, laity, let's pray together!" he added.
As reported by the UOJ, earlier parishioner of the UOC Iryna said that despite the winter weather, Orthodox Christians should continue to pray at the walls of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra.
