Bishops’ Council

Last month, two hundred ninety bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church assembled in Moscow to deal with practical matters in the life of the Russian Church. The Moscow Patriarchate has a nice site dedicated to the sobor, which includes a photography page. The bishops met at Christ the Savior Cathedral, which my brother Aaron and I visited while we were in Moscow. The hierarchical liturgies during the council must have been splendid:

The photography page also shows the bishops’ meeting with President Putin in the Andreyevsky Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace. What a sight!

Aaron and I walked past that lovely building but we did not get to go inside. The main halls are imperial, indeed.
