Patriarch Cyril Calls on Orthodox Christians to Attend to Their Souls

Patriarch Kirill (Gundyayev) of Moscow has called on the faithful of the Russian Orthodox Church to transfer their attention from the external beauty of the monasteries and churches to the internal state of their souls, saying that, "We are restoring the external grandeur [of the churches] to raise the bar for our interior spiritual work. Looking at the grandeur and beauty created by the hands of our ancestors, we understand that such greatness and beauty cannot be created from scratch." More (in Russian) here.
