Pilgrimage to Moscow 16—23 October This happened just before the end of the year which had been celebrated in Moscow marking the th birthday of Grand Princess Elizabeth Feodorovna and the th anniversary of the assassination of the Grand Price Sergey Alexandrovich.
The spiritual leader of the group was Archpriest Stephen Platt. We were sixteen and our number included four non-Orthodox friends and supporters, who returned home with many deep impressions of Orthodox Moscow. Despite the apparent remoteness of the life of a Romanov Grand Duchess from the experience of English people some years later, we pilgrims to the sites of her life and martyrdom in and around Moscow felt ourselves to be very close to her.
I think this is because despite her aristocratic background and life of high status and privilege in a world very different from the one that we inhabit in the 21st century, Saint Elizabeth comes across as a human being very like ourselves. Because we can relate her life to ours in so natural a way, we can be inspired by the way in which she was able to turn the unpredictable circumstances of her life into heroic sanctity.
The clarity of her Christian vision as to what is right and true enabled her to deal with evils that would have submerged lesser souls, so to travel around sites associated with her life is a real inspiration for the Christian of today, reminding us that great sanctity is possible for us all if we will have the faith to embrace the events of life whether sought or not as given to us by God. For pilgrims from Western Europe used to experiencing Christian faith apparently in decline in our society, it was also inspiring to see the Church in Russia having emerged from terrible persecution so spiritually strong.
The parishes and monasteries we visited were vibrant and active, fed and nourished by the example and sacrifice of the many new martyrs such as Saint Elizabeth. We pray to the Holy Spirit for inspiration to put this into practice when back home. A couple of impressions: Ladies turning up after work to make mosaics and frescoes for their beautiful new church.
The Russian Orthodox Church has such a long and strong tradition. After a gap of 70 years, ordinary people are now literally rebuilding the churches; like a natural spring temporarily blocked, its life flows again with vigour. Unexpectedly discovering at the Tretyakov Gallery beautiful paintings I knew only from books. I was touched by the warm welcome that our group received wherever we went. Russian people were very friendly and did their best to guide, feed and give us all the relevant information of all the fantastic places that we visited such as Sretensky and Donsky Monasteries,Martha and Mary Convent, many churches and memorable places.

One place of which I have vivid memories is Novosspasky Monastery. I have been ill for some time and this was particularly relevant to me as I felt compelled to prayer as well. When I recover from my illness, I would very much like to visit this wonderful place again.
Finally, many thanks to Maria for the thorough planning of this trip. The group on this Pilgrimage was very friendly and everybody felt at ease joining the activities planned.
It was particularly impressive to see people of all ages enjoying and helping each other as if we had been friends for many years. The Pilgrimage to Moscow provided a cornucopia of activities both spiritual and physical. Yes, we visited many famous sites, several churches and monasteries and museums.
The Bolshoi was fabulous.
Perhaps the real excitement to me was sharing our spiritual and temporal experiences with such a wonderful set of people and in turn learning more about myself as well. On a more light hearted note certain members of the party did train for the next Olympics demonstrating their ability to gate limbo , a ceremony which took place around Our patronal feast was celebrated very joyfully this year.
