  • Optina Hermitage called the people blessed. And whoever goes to the abode is not for "watch, take pictures, listen to the guided tour" will not be able to immediately appreciate this place. There is a misconception that the monastery well restored, since the State revived Church complex still in 80-ies in the USSR. Oh no! The monastery was returned at the end of 87 years. And rebuilt it largely already at the time of the new Government, going along with the entire country through the difficulties. The tremendous work done not only to restore the temples. Optina Hermitage as spring water, spring of faith. Come here for consolation and healing, with the humility and the Council. Many prayed for the first time at the liturgy in the Optina monastery, see what depth should be prayer. Neotropical Bellbird here. Many fall in love with this Bell rehash, but haven't listened to bells never in life. After this trip you are sure to want to know more of the Optina starcah have her illustrious prepodobnomuchennikah 20 century and the three slain brothers at Easter 1993 year. Your world change, will be the other. Come for sure! There is a House for pilgrims, good parking, who has the opportunity, he can negotiate with local residents to stay. Guardian Angel:)

  • Optina, not only a monument of architecture, culture, history. Optina is a blessed place-prayers the elders namolennoe-will take, who will lead the believers and doubters. Let me quote the words of a well-known spiritual writer e. m. If: "Here unwittingly man looks at himself and surrender will remember his evil and will shudder with. So trifle seem all desires that people live, and so I want to forget them and get away from it all and be sad that so lyubitsya what so unworthy of love. " PS. to pilgrimage (greater spiritual benefit) suggest to prepare: read the spirit. literature, receive a blessing. And not in a hurry to leave, do not fuss.
