Who knows the pity and sorrow of the Mother of God, our sorrowful intercessor!

Putin's Patriarch Cyril celebrated this past Sunday in the Russian Military Cathedral,
infamous for its "steam-punk" design, and pro-war Soviet symbolism.

"Mothers wail:

- We do not cry for ourselves, but only that our sons be spared.
Fathers mourn:
- recalling past hopes, no longer believing their sons will return.
Wives tear their hair:
- in anguish for their husbands.
In Alexandria and in Syria the same words of prayer rise to heaven,
- prayers for mercy and prayers for victory.
But heaven remained unmoved." - Aleksey Remizov
