117 Russians in Hospital After Drinking Holy Water

January 25, 2009
Yahoo News

More than 100 Russian Orthodox believers have been hospitalized after drinking holy water during Epiphany celebrations in the eastern city of Irkutsk, an official said Monday.

A total of 117 people, including 48 children, were in the hospital complaining of acute intestinal pain after drinking water from wells in and around a local church last week, said Vladimir Salovarov, a spokesman for the Irkutsk Investigative Committee.

Salovarov said 204 people required some medical treatment after consuming the water, the source of which was a stagnant lake. He said, however, that it was too early to say what caused the illness.

Many Russians consider any water obtained on Epiphany — which they celebrate on Jan. 19 — to be holy.

The water is typically bottled for consumption later. Tap water in most of Russia is undrinkable.

The goal of this whole ecumenism is to bring about a new world order.

I hate to break it to you but the merger of various Churches and faiths is not going to bring about a "new world order".  We've seen various Churches and religion institutions continue to lose influence over the general public (with certain exceptions), and this is likely a trend that will continue.  Even in a world with a "First Amalgamated Church" like in Futurama, it would not have the ability to form some all-powerful collective that will bring about some sort of apocalypse.  It would pontificate to a public that really wasn't all too interested in listening.

With not a commun gospel I may agree with you, but the current problem and scandal of christianity is that when in mission lands the Gospel is proclamed by a catholic missionary then a protestant missionary pases anathemises catholic preacher, and then a Mormon, and an adventist. (orthodox don't use to mission so much). That is a scandal that goes against Christ. Division of christianity is the key weapon of Satan against God's will, to delay the inevitable conversion of the entire world to The Lord Jesus Christ.

Now, Catholicism and Orthodoxy need to unite to create a comun strategy of mission to the entire world, even to muslims. We need a comun strategy to show muslims how false is Mahoma as a prophet of the true God. and why Qur'an goes against the Bible. and the teaching of the old testament and the new testament. Bible Vs Qur'an. that is going to be the key of the strategy, despite all the saints we believe, the only way to convert muslims is to show them how far is Qur'an from the real teachings of the only God taught in the Bible.

Luke 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

1Th. 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

2Cor. 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

1Th. 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

2Pet. 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

This looks like bad news for Constantinople Patriarchate.


BRUCE CRUMLEY
Sunday, Jan. 24, 2010
TIME Magazine

Though not even two decades have passed since the Soviet state collapsed in 1991, the Orthodox Russians who came to France to flee communism say they're starting to view Moscow with mistrust again. The reason: the recent move by Russia to take control of a dazzling Orthodox cathedral built in Nice during the reign of Czar Nicholas II, which some opponents say is part a wider, nationalistic power play by Moscow to regain symbols of Russia's historical, cultural and religious grandeur abroad.

The tussle centers on the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas — a breathtaking church topped with spires and domes that was built in 1912 on land that Nicholas' grandfather Alexander II had purchased half a century earlier. Initially intended as a place of worship for the Russian aristocrats and industrialists who flocked to the Côte d'Azur before the 1917 Russian Revolution, the cathedral became a spiritual and cultural focal point for the mass of exiles who fled to Nice during the Soviet era. Since the fall of communism nearly 19 years ago, the so-called white Russian community and its offspring have been joined by Russian jet-setters who've grown extremely wealthy under the country's current leadership and bought pricey mansions in Nice to use as their second homes.

To the Russian diaspora, as well as the 85,000 paying tourists who visit the church every year, the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas has represented a slice of Mother Russia on the shores of the Mediterranean. And that's exactly the logic the Russian government used to win a court case in France on Jan. 20 that recognized Moscow's ownership of the church. The Nice Russian Orthodox Cultural Association (ACOR), which managed the church under a 99-year lease it signed with the czarist regime in 1909, had maintained that it effectively inherited the cathedral when Russia's royal family was executed during the revolution. But the court upheld the Russian government's position that since the czarists had bought the land and built the church using state money, the cathedral remains the property of the Russian government, meaning that Moscow could legally reclaim it now that ACOR's lease has expired. Decades of Soviet uninterest in the property, the court decided, did not undermine Russia's entitlement to it today.

ACOR, which says it will appeal the ruling, has derided the case as yet another attempt by Russian leaders to manipulate the Orthodox Church for political and nationalistic purposes. Under the Soviet regime, communist leaders enlisted Russian Orthodox officials to fan patriotism and encourage support for the state among the population, in return for which the authorities held back from stamping out the religion for good. Now detractors say that Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and his government allies are similarly seeking to gain public support by reclaiming relics of Russia's former greatness abroad to stoke patriotism among voters.

"It's a tradition that goes back to Ivan the Terrible and Peter the Great, in which political leaders used symbols of Russian grandeur — including an entirely submissive church — to create greater support for the regime," says Jean Gueit, rector of the Nice cathedral. "Russian society has been so disoriented and adrift following the changes of the past 20 years that Putin is playing the old nationalist game to snap people out of it by responding to simplistic messages and emotions. Part of that is rebuilding the equally shattered Russian Orthodox Church and help it snatch up all these parishes abroad."

Indeed, the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas is not the only prize catching Moscow's eye. Last year Italy agreed to cede ownership of a similarly spectacular cathedral in Bari to the Russian Orthodox Church, and the year before that, Paris did the same with a cathedral there. And last October, Israel agreed to turn over a building in Jerusalem known as "Sergei's Courtyard" that was constructed in 1890 to accommodate Russian pilgrims to the Holy Land. Moscow is also currently in a legal battle over control of London's St. Andrews Cathedral, home to a large Orthodox congregation.

But Moscow's drive isn't just about real estate and nationalism. Critics say the government is also trying to bring back into the fold the congregations that broke with the Russian Orthodox Church during the Soviet era to join a rival Orthodox branch, the Patriarchate of Constantinople — as the faithful in Nice did in 1931. Many of these overseas congregations have started to restore their ties to the Russian Orthodox Church in recent years, though Gueit says this is only in response to the government's putting the squeeze on their churches.

The Nice congregation isn't planning to rejoin the Russian church anytime soon. In fact, Gueit says the congregation wants to stake out an independent, pan-Orthodox position by breaking with the Constantinople Patriarchate too. He hopes to then attract other congregations to his nonaligned movement — whether he has a cathedral to use as his base or not.


Besides TIME being descredited as a "news" outlet (did you notice the coverage on JP II"s death and the current status of his church?), why do you latch on a sentence which has very little to do with the rest of the article?  Could it be that trouble is coming not for Constantinople, but the Vatican's plans on the Orthodox?

Wow! A point upon which we can all agree!

yeah demonic ecstacy is great...

That's what St Maximos the Confessor calls it when someone is drunk....

Here is some advice for everyone:

Prov. 23:29 Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?
Prov. 23:30 They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.
Prov. 23:31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.
Prov. 23:32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.
Prov. 23:33 Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.
Prov. 23:34 Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.
Prov. 23:35 They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again. '

If I only knew this before I had started to go wild in my teen years...  :(

If you read the next quotes, you will see that the problem with wine is not the wine itself, but to drink too much wine. Unfortunatelly some people can't control themselves. but it is not a Sin to drink wine.

When you are comming to México, just don't drink tap water, It is chlorinated but some little towns are not quite careful about this, here in méxico we all drink bottled Water, just you do the same.

Also, if you are not used to eat spicy food, avoid mole.

Pagan Rome + Christian persecution + Roman Catholicism  +  Papal inquisitions (more Christian murders) + Ecumenism = NEW WORLD ORDER AND THE KINGDOM OF THE ANTI-CHRIST  Nothing New Under the Sun
There. I have fixed it. :)
We must not operate either out of fear nor panic, as I see most people with "apocalyptic" ideas do. Why should the Christians in the days of the Antichrist do anything different to the Christians of the first, second, third.......21st centuries? Our duty is is to love God with all our heart, mind, soul and body and to love our neighbour as ourself. Nothing in this duty of ours changes even if we are standing in the throne-room of the Antichrist himself. Our duty as Christians is still the same no matter what, so why the panic? And if we are weak and experience panic in difficult situations, we should at least try not to communicate our panic to others.

2Cor. 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?


Phil. 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.



Mt 9:35
Acts 13:5,14
Acts 14:1
Acts 17: 1-2,17
Acts 18:1,4-6
Acts 18:19
Acts 19:1,8

Hope this is enough for you to know that the Gospel needs to be proclamed among those who do not believe.

I think you will find that Alonso_castillo is from Mexico where a case of "Montezuma's Revenge" from drinking the water is quite a frequent occurrence.

Yes, ethnical tensions, so orthodox, nothing of catholicism is left there.

Orthodoxy is Catholicism.

Roman Catholicism is an adultereated form of Christianity.
The Vatican state is like a dictatorship simlilar to hitler.
I will have nothing to do with those wolves

I have always been impressed how the Orthodox countries have always been known for the degree of religious tolerance which they offered, as opposed to the absolute intolerance shown to minority faiths in Western lands.

In Constantinople, there was a Mosque for Muslims built long before the Turks took over.  Likewise, Russia allowed Jews, Tartars, and Catholics to practice their faith and build houses of worship on their soil.  Compare that to the blood wars and inquisitions that the RC and protestant  nations imposed on those they considered dissidents
Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

Hmm, I can think of a few episodes from Russian history that don't support such a rosy picture. Remember that the word "pogrom" comes from Russian...
