Bringing to Russia from Italy of the relics of St. Nicholas is «the promotion of missionary work and education», a long queue of pilgrims to the relics due to «joy of meeting with the Holy as a living person» in the Orthodox Church, said on Saturday the press Secretary of the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill, the priest of Alexander Volkov.

According to the official website of the bringing of the Shrine on Friday evening, the relics of St. Nicholas, for the first time in history brought to Russia, Moscow bowed to 1 million pilgrims.

From 21 may the relics are in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. With 13 hours on may 22 to him opened free access for pilgrims. Access to the relics is open daily until 12 July from 8.00 to 21.00.

«Important in itself, meeting a person with the Holy. She’s always in the tradition of our faith, in the tradition of Orthodoxy. This is the joy of meeting with the saints as a living person, to be exact — with a live person, because the Holy is separated from us, as, in fact, any person who died… this thin divider of life and death, but in reality God has all life,» said Volkov, the radio station «Vesti FM», talking about how he associates the long hours of queues to the Cathedral of Christ the Savior.

According to the press Secretary of the Patriarch, that «the joy of meeting with the saints through his power» is «a very important part of our faith, which gives man consolation, hope and opportunity as the right way to move forward in life.» The people in line, he added, also «receive the joy of mutual communication and, according to thousands of reviews, with great enthusiasm spend those few — three, four, five, even ten hours in the queue».

Answering the question about why people go to the temple of Christ the Savior, when in several other Moscow churches also have relics of St. Nicholas, Volkov remarked that «man is important involvement in this particular history.»

«This is a spiritual and purely human component, there is nothing bad, wrong or unnatural. It is very good that people have the need to join it to this part of the relics of St…. Person is important to feel this connection between themselves and the Saint Nicholas, whose relics there in the distant Bari. Every Russian person knows that there he will get help if I get there, and he knows that, having here an effort, stood in this queue for hours, he will receive from the Holy please. And for this, he goes there, making the effort makes over a certain feat,» — said Volkov.

He stressed that the arrival of the relics of the Saint is «the fact of the meeting with the living Saint, and through him the fact of the meeting with God.» «If you want, you can call this action an act of missionary work and education. Because the one million people who came — this is the kind of a significant part of our society… It is the people of the Church rather than the secular, which, anyway, why they came to the relics, some experience with the Church has already received. And thank God, we are very happy», — concluded the press-Secretary of the Patriarch.
