  • An amazing story attracts both pilgrims and the simply curious. This place is in a quiet picturesque corner of Yaroslavl region in the village of Godenovo, near the town of pereslavl-zalessky. Dobirat′s′sâ better on the car because it is miles away. twenty from the transport interchange. But does every inhabitant will tell you how to properly go to this shrine.

  • Found out about this place quite by accident. I saw a signpost on the way from Pereslavl and Rostov decided to go-it's not every day that the shrine visit. Passing on is not the best way, saw the white Temple on the outskirts of the village. Read the history of the independence of the cross, then went inside. I am not particularly faithful, but seeing the shrine, felt a special atmosphere, some climbing. Everything in me said: I believe, believe, believe! ... Nothing like not experienced before. Even in the Vatican and Jerusalem. Can only in Bethlehem when touched the stars in place of the birth of Christ. Usually people here much. Pilgrims, tourists go to venerate the crucifix. There have been cases of miraculous healing. I was lucky, almost no one was and nothing prevented me to touch one of the shrines of the Orthodox faith. I noticed that unlike conventional crucifixions, here Christ is not retracted abdomen. The girls bring to the cross flowers in baskets which do not wither, and then distribute them to the faithful and to all comers. The Church shop you can buy a miniature copy of the crucifixion, sacred image with his image, consecrated oil and even magnets depicting Temple. That's what I did. So passing in those places, take your time and visit the Church of St. John Chrysostom in Godenovo.

  • Were the veneration of the cross on April 3. Of course a lot of people. But the place itself and the cross is not to describe. Pro energy wrote. Frustrating only road.
