    Default The Russian satellite fell, even though it was sanctified. The Church faces criticism

    "According to Orthodox clergy, Andrei Kurajev, the problem may lie in the "incompetence" of Archbishop Savvy, who has consecrated the machine. "It is strange that the church provides certain services but does not bear any responsibility for their quality," Kurajev said.

    He also noticed that the clergyman, who had sprinkled the so-called holy water on the Meteor-M satellite missile, was not properly dressed for the ceremony.

    Kurajev thinks that church dignitaries whose "consecration" was not successful should be reprimanded. They would also have to ask conscience and ask God, why He overlooked their prayers."

    I find it partially funny and partially interesting

    Imagine responsibility of "health" preachers for any unsuccessful healing Or so called prophets for their prophecies. I am afraid they would all disappear till the end of the year.

    Do not be worried about many things - only one thing is needed (Lk 10:41-42).

    He used wrong type of Holy Water. He should have bought some of Peter Popoff's miracle spring water.

    2 Peter 1:5 Because you have these blessings, do all you can to add to your life these things: to your faith add goodness; to your goodness add knowledge; 6 to your knowledge add self-control; to your self-control add patience; to your patience add devotion to God; 7 to your devotion add kindness toward your brothers and sisters in Christ, and to this kindness add love.

    We have a publication here where I live called, The News of the Weird, this story would belong. But when you think about it, it's just sad.
