In your 71st birthday of the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill presented to reporters a collection of his thoughts and reasoning. 80 topics – from Church polity to postmodern and Ukraine, according to the head of the Church, will not be a «memorial» but a living book, useful to everyone.

The book contains the statements of the Primate of the Russian Church on eighty topics, including the political structure, the economy, the coming of the Antichrist and the relations of the Church with reporters.

«The voice of the Church must become the voice of the weak and deprived of power, seeks justice», «People are half-educated students, who escaped with a lesson about good and evil before it starts,» the Director of the Department of information and press of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, the Patriarch with his vivid phrases taught all her colleagues «to talk, to share and to convince».

«Your sincerity is striking,» — said Zakharov, referring to the Patriarch.

In turn, the Church Primate hopes that in a time when reading large texts people have no opportunities, and information space is oversaturated, his work will help to «feel and understand».

«I always say what I called for the Lord, all the thoughts that came to mind,» — said the Patriarch Cyril about the idea of creating a collection.
