  • When obojdjosh' the whole monastery, finished with shrines, poobshhaesh'sja with people you have listened to tour otstoish' liturgy, firmly convinced that it is really the fourth barony of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Some inexplicable grace settles in you and accompany you for a long time. All the way here, and miserable, and happy. With God!

  • We are a big company came in Diveyevo from the capital. In the evening, walked around the neighborhood, drove a dip in the baptismal font, a tasty meal at the veranda. Early in the morning, went to the service. The service is very beautiful and solemn. Temples huge, everything. There are many shops with souvenirs.

  • In Diveyevo I went a few times. Earlier, with a large pilgrimage group and in July for the first time went on their own. On the feast of the Kazan icon of the mother of God, I again visited Diveyevo. Everything here is under the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary and FR. Seraphim, Wonderworker of all Russia. Cancer with relics of father Seraphim is the Trinity Cathedral, relics of Blessed saints of Diveyevo in the Kazan Temple, liturgy, we fall into the Cathedral of the Transfiguration. Temples-wonderful architecture, wonderful singing choir sisters monastery, all very sedately and kind. In the evening light, and amid the winter night sky temples look very beautiful. Be sure to follow the Holy Groove with a prayer: Virgin, rejoice, o ... (150 times). It is believed that those who will is under a special Cover of the mother of God. In Diveyevo 5 holy sources with the fonts, you can gain with a holy water and plunge into the font. I okunalas' in the summer, now lacked courage, but those who dipped, came out with shining faces. Source Priest Seraphim is located in the village of Cyganovka, from the pilgrimage center of there trips by bus, costing 80 rubles. Impressions of Diveyevo most good. All Orthodox Christians recommend visit this holy place.

  • Place of power and it is felt. In the Friday and weekend many pilgrims. On weekdays relatively freely. In the pilgrimage centre, you can remove the housing and to clarify all questions. Food: there is a pilgrimage at the monastery refectory-free, but it's on the air and paid close to the pilgrimage centre.
