  • Serafimo-diveyevsky monastery has changed a lot over the past 20 years, I remember came here first time shuttle ride from the town of Arzamas. Later with each visit I saw changes taking place on the territory, and inside the temples. This time came to about 5 pm, Diveevo I am very surprised to see that the relics no queue, this to me was the first time, and on the territory of the monastery was little pilgrims. It seemed to me that here became a monastic asceticism, spirit vanished appeared in fountain shops are selling chocolates, something went ... I hope for the good of all, and the place certainly namolennoe but first impressions are the strongest.

  • Describe your feelings cannot be the words! I wanted to get into this holy place long ago, but somehow it never happened. Came late in the afternoon, we stopped at the hotel "Diveevskaâ Sloboda" (the coupon from the "Bigliona" about this establishment a separate review to write), and immediately turned into a monastery. Hit for the evening service to the relics of St. Seraphim, went with prayers to the most Holy Theotokos on the Groove. People have been a bit. Be quiet. Quietly. The Grace Of God ... Indeed, everyone will get there that is looking for ... Morning came early, before the service, again on the Groove to the relics, then simply wandered, admiring and enjoying the peace and quiet that there you feel like nowhere else.
