Pe 31 iulie 2014, Protopopul Vladimir Kreslyansky, un cleric ucrainean al Bisericii Ortodoxe Sf. Gheorghe, a fost ucis de armata ucraineană în timpul bombardamentelor de la Lugansk, cu bombe cu dispersie interzise. Părintele Vladimir, care a fost rănit mortal, a îngenuncheat înainte de a muri, să se roage ca restul bombelor cu dispersie, aruncate din paraşută, să nu explodeze. Dumnezeu a revelat o minune prin mijlocirile preotului pe moarte, iar bombele au căzut treptat pe pământ şi într-adevăr, nu au explodat.

Dar nu este doar un miracol, ci un miracol semnificativ.

În centrul oraşului Lugansk se află biserica în cinstea icoanei Maicii Domnului „a sensibilităţii”. La data de 31 iulie, la ora 19:30, după slujba de seară, Pr. Vladimir a ieșit din acea biserică pe stradă şi condus acasă. Aceasta a fost în ajunul prăznuirii unuia dintre sfinţii cei mai veneraţi în Biserica Ortodoxă Rusă, Sf. Serafim de Sarov: 1 august celebrează găsirea moaștelor sale, care a avut loc în 1903. Mergând pe stradă, Pr. Vladimir a văzut deodată pe cer un bombardier care a aruncat opt bombe cu dispersie de 500 de kilograme de pe paraşute. Părintele Vladimir Kreslyansky a fost atins de tijele unei bombe de 500 de kg, aruncată din avion și care a explodat în apropierea sa. Rănit mortal în piept și brațul stâng, cu hemoragie puternică, ţinând brațul rănit la piept şi făcându-şi cruce cu mâna dreaptă care nu fusese rănită, a găsit puterea de a se așeza pe genunchi și a se ruga pentru ca celelalte 7 bombe să nu explodeze la contactul cu solul. Minunea aceasta este cu frică și cutremur povestită de martori. Bombele au străpuns asfaltul precum cuţitul străpunge untul, fără să explodeze. După această minune, părintele Vladimir şi-a dat sufletul în mâinile lui Hristos. A murit în genunchi, la fel cum Sf. Serafim de Sarov a murit cu mulţi ani înainte. În 1833, Sf. Serafim a murit în timp ce se ruga, îngenuncheat în faţa icoanei Maicii Domnului „a sensibilităţii”.

The Martyrdom of Archpriest Vladimir Kreslyansky

(www.singac.com, 09 September 2014)

On July 31st Archpriest Vladimir Kreslyansky, a cleric of St. George's Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate, was killed by the Ukrainian army during their bombing of Lugansk with banned cluster bombs. He is survived by five children.

Before reading further, cauthion is advised because of a disturbing and a grafic image.
(He is shown in this photo with his wife [Matushka] and three of his children in happier days. His daughter, not shown here, is Sister Nika of our monastery.)

Father Vladimir, having been mortally wounded, knelt down before he died to pray that the rest of the cluster bombs, descending by parachute, would not explode. The Lord revealed a miracle through the intercessions of the dying priest - the bombs gradually fell upon the ground and they indeed did not explode.

But it's not just a miracle, but a significant miracle.

In the centre of Lugansk stands the temple in honour of the icon of the Mother of God of "Tenderness". On July 31st at 7:30, following the evening service, Fr. Vladimir went out from that very church onto the street and headed home.

It was on the eve of one of the most revered saints in the Russia Orthodox Church, St. Seraphim of Sarov: August 1st celebrates the finding of his relics which occurred in 1903.

The Church's day begins on the evening before at 5 P.M., so that means that on the evening of July 31st, Fr. Vladimir began, by his prayerful effort, that very feast of the Sarov wonder worker.

Approaching Chapaev Street, he suddenly saw in the sky a bomber that dropped eight 500-kilogram cluster bombs on parachutes. This type of bomb explodes before hitting the ground, when a corresponding sensor is triggered, increasing the destructive effect. This occurred around a densely populated area with a lot of residential housing and at a time when a lot of pedestrians are on the street. The Ukrainian army usually shoots and bombs either at night or early in the morning.

After the explosion of the first two bombs, father was mortally wounded in the chest and left arm. Holding his wounded arm to his chest, Fr. Vladimir came out of the passage between the houses onto Chapaev Street. He knelt down and started praying, crossing himself with his uninjured right hand. The other six cluster bombs that fell on the residential area, did not explode. Through his prayers, no one else was killed.

So Fr. Vladimir was granted, on the day of the memory of St. Seraphim of Sarov, in a like manner to die on his knees, just as many years before this great saint had died. In 1833, Fr. Seraphim died while praying, kneeling before the icon of the Mother of God of "Tenderness", while extending his hands to support his bowed head. Thus the connection is made between the name of the church, in which Fr. Vladimir served that night and the manner of his and St. Seraphim's death.


May Archpriest Vladimir's MEMORY BE ETERNAL!
