The All-Ukrainian Cross Procession: 100 photographs

On July 28, the All-Ukrainian Cross Procession for peace, love and prayer in the Ukraine came to its conclusion with Divine Liturgy at the Kiev Caves Lavra, with His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry presiding. According to the most modest accounts, over 80,000 people participated in the procession that stretched across the Ukraine in two flanks—from East and West. Many of the participants walked hundreds of kilometers.

Pravoslavie.ru website posted this photographic chronicle of this wide-scale event, prepared by Kiev photographer and director of the Orthodox Center of Artistic and Documentary Photography, Holy Trinity St. Jonas Monastery, Sergei Ryzhkov.

Sergei, who shot over 41,000 photographs at the All-Ukrainian Cross Procession at the request of the Union of Orthodox Journalists of Ukraine, selected 100 of his favourites for Pravoslavie.ru, which we reproduce here for our readers. More photographs can be found on the author's own website. May the smiling, and prayerful faces of this incredible event inspire us also in our Orthodox faith.
