“The Sun Has Descended!”

“As the Sun has descended to our church, it is quite natural to ring the bells.”

This was what the church superior Seropont spoke from the bottom of his heart to Chairman Kim Jong Il who visited the Russian Orthodox Church named after St. Bishop Innokenty Irkutsk on August 22 Juche 91(2002).

According to the Russian Orthodox ceremony, it has been a strict discipline to ring the bells at noon when the sun rises up in the highest. However, that day only, the bells were rung in the morning in violation of the commandments.
