Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia called those who do not believe in the existence of coronavirus and disregard medical prescriptions stupid people. He compared them to unbelievers and encouraged people to behave in accordance with medical requirements.
“I know that there are people who do not believe in anything – they do not believe in illness or danger, they neglect these medical prescriptions. But we, believers, know that not only these people are stupid – and that is how they can be called – exist in the world, but there are many people who do not believe in God, “he said during a sermon after the liturgy (quoted by TASS ).
In January, the Russian Orthodox Church advised older people to refrain from attending church services on Christmas due to the spread of the coronavirus. The representative of the Moscow Patriarchate noted that priests can come home to those who cannot visit churches. At the same time, Orthodox churches continue to work at Christmas.
