A complete miracle: everything that was destroyed in the war was sacred

In 586 BC, the forces of the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the temple of King Solomon in Jerusalem.

In 1237, Batu Khan’s troops set fire to the Savior’s Cathedral in Ryazan and killed the people hiding there.

In 1931, the Bolsheviks blew up the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow.

In 2015, ISIS terrorists blew up the Temple of Bel in Palmyra.

In 2023, Russian troops destroyed the Transfiguration Cathedral in Odessa.

Who would the Russian army want to ally with – Nebuchadnezzar, Batu, Stalin or ISIS? However, the difference is small. Centuries pass, and the barbarians do not change.

Noteworthy are the justifications of the Russian Ministry of Defense, followed by the spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, that the temple and twenty-five other cultural heritage sites in Odessa suffered not from Russian shelling, but from the illiterate actions of the Ukrainian air defense forces. Let’s say that a very precise Russian missile flew into a military facility, and the Ukrainian troops shot it down, and therefore the missile hit the temple.

It’s like saying that Julius Caesar stumbled upon Brutus’ dagger because the illiterate defended himself against an attack by conspirators. Or that Alexander Pushkin during the duel with Dantes, illiterate, positioned himself in space and therefore stumbled upon the ball.

Or that Leningrad was blocked due to illiterate defense or due to illiterate actions of the Soviet troops in the first part of the Great Patriotic War.

Or that the Belarusian village of Khatyn was burned down because of the illiterate organization of the village fire brigade.

The destruction of temples goes down in history, it becomes a symbol of barbarism, because people fill the temples with meaning, they believe that a miracle happens every day in the altar. A temple is a temple, so its destruction is a historic event.

In fact, any item should be considered a miracle, a rocket simply cannot hit anything that cannot be considered a miracle. Only many people believe in the miraculous properties of the temple, and few know the miraculous properties of everything else in the world.

In the altar of the Transfiguration Cathedral, the miracle of the Eucharist took place every day – the wine was transformed into the Blood of Christ, and the bread into the Body of Christ. And the parishioners shared this miracle. The Eucharist is not of this world, it is not afraid of rockets, but the temple and its priests are defenseless.

At the same location in nearby Odessa, several elevators and port granaries were bombed by Russian missiles and drones. There was also bread. This bread did not turn into the body of God, but was to strengthen the bodies of tens, if not hundreds of thousands of people around the world. This bread was to participate in the miracle of the continuation of life. People also had to participate in this miracle. Now Ukrainian bread will not participate in the miracle.

Lisa’s girlfriend in Vinnitsa, remember, the one who died under fire, at least for her mother, was no less a miracle than a shrine for Odessa and Odessa people. Dr. Oksana Leontieva, who died in Kiev, was also a miracle, at least for her family and patients.

Let’s lower the hype. The Kakhovka Dam was a miracle, and it was inefficient, inefficient, but a miracle – thanks to it, the land around it lived, which now, without irrigation, is rapidly turning into a barren desert.

They will surely tell me that dead children in Donetsk are a miracle. And the stadium in Donetsk and the airport in Donetsk. Yes, and they were a miracle, an irrevocable sanctuary. You can’t hit anything with a rocket that isn’t a miracle and a temple.

It’s a pity that the soldier who equips the rocket and the officer who gives the order to fire it don’t have enough imagination to imagine it – a total miracle.
