Russian Patriarch Kirill Calls for Orthodox Christmas Truce – Antichrist Zelenskiy Rejects it

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 6, 2023

ልክ እንደ ቆሻሻው ግራኝ አብዮት አህመድ ኦርቶዶክስ ወንደማማቾችን በመከፋፈል ላይ ያለው የዚህ ወስላታ መሪ ደጋፊዎች የሆኑት ኤዶማውያኑ ምዕራባውያንም (ግራኝና ዜሊንስኪ ወደ ዋሽንግተኑ ነጩ ቤት በአንድ ሰሞን መጋበዛቸው ያለምክኒያት አልነበረም) በዚህ የሰላም ጥሪ ላይ በመሳለቅ ላይ ናቸው። በኢትዮጵያ ግን “ተደራደሩ! ሰላም ፍጠሩ፣ ተኩስ አቁሙ!” እያሉ አረመኔዎቹን ወኪሎቻቸውን እነ ኢሳያስ አፈቆርኪን፣ ደብረጽዮንን እና ግራኝ አብዮት አህመድ አሊን ከተጠያቂነት ለማዳን ተግተው በመስራት ላይ ናቸው። ለጊዜው ‘በበቂ’ ቁጥር ያህል ኦርቶዶክስ ክርስቲያኖችን ለመጨፍጨፍ ስለበቁ ነው አሁን በኢትዮጵያ ‘ሰላሙን’ የሚሹት። በዩክሬይን እና በሩሲያ፣ በቀጣዩም በግሪክና አርሜኒያ የሚገኙት ኦርቶዶክስ ክርስቲያኖች ግን ሉሲፈራውያኑ እንደሚመኙት ቁጥር ያህል ገና አላለቁላቸውም። መቼስ ለምዕራባውያኑ ወዮላቸው!

The Russian Patriarch Kirill, head of the Russian Orthodox Church, calls for a ceasefire in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

He wants both militaries to lay down their arms at midnight on January 6, when the Eastern Orthodox Church celebrates Christmas. That is reported by

A ceasefire would allow orthodox soldiers to attend church services on Christmas Eve and Christmas day, Kirill explained his plea. He added that the truce should remain in force until the night before next Sunday.

Eastern Orthodox Churches have traditionally celebrated Christmas on a different date than Western churches. This year, for the first time, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church allowed parishes to adhere to Western traditions by celebrating Christmas on December 25.

For much of the Western world, Christmas is celebrated on December 25, according to the Gregorian calendar. Yet in a distinction that dates back centuries, Orthodox Christians follow the Julian calendar and mark the festival on January 7 instead.

Orthodox Christmas — and the long-standing rift between the Russian Orthodox Church and other Orthodox groups — has been thrust into the spotlight this year by Russian President Vladmir Putin’s call for a temporary 36-hour ceasefire in Ukraine to allow Orthodox followers to attend Christmas services. Putin’s proposal was swiftly dismissed as “hypocrisy” and “propaganda” by Ukrainian officials, and shelling has continued from both sides.

Orthodox Christians are estimated to number between 200 and 300 million people globally.

It may be the new year, but for us, Christmas celebrations are only just beginning.

In some Eastern European countries, in Ethiopia and Egypt Christmas is officially celebrated on January 7.

That is because many Orthodox Christian churches follow the Julian calendar for religious celebrations.

The Julian calendar runs 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar, the standard international calendar in use today.

When we Orthodox Christians open the church calendar on January 7, we’re actually looking at the date December 25. So we still have that same date, we’re just using a calendar that hasn’t caught up. It’s like a clock that’s running 13 days slow.

The Julian calendar took effect under the reign of Julius Caesar in 45BC.

In 1582, Pope Gregory XIII created a new calendar to correct the discrepancy between calendar time and calculated astronomical time. It became known as the Gregorian calendar.

But to begin with only Catholic countries adopted the changes and Orthodox Christian countries remained on the Julian calendar.

Over time, those countries adopted the Gregorian calendar for secular use but the Orthodox churches continued to base their liturgical calendar on the Julian timetable.

In 1923 a revised version of the Julian calendar was introduced bringing Christmas Day in line with the Gregorian calendar, but it was only adopted by some of the Orthodox Christian countries including Greece, Cyprus and Romania.

Russia, Ukraine, Serbia, Belarus, Egypt, Ethiopia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Moldova and Montenegro continue to celebrate Christmas on January 7.

Prior to Russia’s full-scale war on Ukraine, Kyiv had been pushing to establish its own independent Orthodox Church separate from Moscow, and the schism only widened in the wake of Putin’s invasion last year. In October, a branch of Ukraine’s Orthodox church announced it would allow its churches to celebrate Christmas on December 25, rather than January 7.

Edomites of The West and Ishmailites of The East are spreading strife among Orthodox Christian brothers in Russia, Ukraine, Armenia, Georgia, Syria, Iraq, Egypt and Ethiopia.

❖❖❖[Proverbs 6:16-19]❖❖❖

There are six things which the Lord hates Yes seven which are an abomination to Him:..And one who spreads strife among brothers.„

💭 For example, there was an anti-Orthodox conspiracy when the following individuals and bodies had been ‘randomly and coincidentally’ awarded by the Norwegian Nobel Committee – four years in a row:

2019 Nobel Peace Prize to evil Abiy Ahmed Ali for a Pact of War vs Orthodox Ethiopia

2020 Nobel Peace Prize to WFP in anticipation of the following genocidal war (Nov. 2020) against ancient Orthodox Christians of Tigray, Ethiopia

2021 Nobel Peace Prize to Dmitry Muratov of Orthodox Russia in anticipation of the coming war (Feb. 2022) between the two orthodox brothers; Russia-Ukraine

2022 Nobel Peace Prize to Ales Bialiatski from Belarus and the Russian human rights organisation, the Russian human rights organisation Memorial and the Ukrainian human rights organisation Center for Civil Liberties. – in anticipation of the coming nuclear war between the three orthodox brothers; Russia + Ukraine + Belarus

Soccer-Former Star Italy Striker Vialli Dies Aged 58 | R.I.P

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 6, 2023

የእግር ኳስ የቀድሞው የጣልያን ኮከብ አጥቂ ጂያንሉካ ቪያሊ በ፶፰/ 58 አመቱ ከዚህ አለም በሞት ተለየ | ነፍስ ይማር

The former Chelsea player and manager Gianluca Vialli has died aged 58 after a battle with cancer.

The Italian, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer five years ago, played for and managed the London club, scoring 40 goals in 88 games between 1996 and 1999 during his time on the pitch for Chelsea, becoming one of the clubs most beloved players.

Tributes have flooded in for Vialli, with former teammate Graeme Souness, who played alongside him at Sampdoria, visibly emotional as he remembered his friend on Sky Sports.

He said: “I can’t tell you how good a guy he was. Forget football, he was just a gorgeous soul. He was just a truly nice human being.

“He was just fabulous to be around. He was such a fun-loving guy, full of mischief, wonderful footballer and a warm human being.

“People will say things about his magnificent football ability, and correctly so, but above all that what a human being. My condolence go to his family – the kids were blessed to have a dad like that, his wife was blessed to be married to a man like that.”

His former club Sampdoria described him as “better than Pele” in an emotional tribute, saying: “You gave us so much, we gave you so much: yes, it was love, reciprocal, infinite. A love that will not die today with you. We will continue to love and adore you.”

Russia Says It Shot Down a UFO | ምንነቱ የማይታወቅ በራሪ አካልን መትታ መጣሏን ሩሲያ አሳወቀች

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 6, 2023

🛑 A mystery object described by one local news outlet as a “UFO” has been shot down in the southern Russian region of Rostov.

Vasily Golubev, the governor of Rostov oblast, wrote on Telegram that a “small-size object in the shape of a ball” had been discovered flying “in the wind” at an altitude of around one and a half miles on January 3. With the object spotted above the village of Sultan Sala in the region’s Myasnikovsky district, Golubev said “the decision was taken to liquidate it.”

“I urge everyone to remain calm. To ensure security, all forces and means are involved. The sky is covered with anti-aircraft defenses,” he added, without specifying what the object was.

In reporting his comments, local news outlet Pivyet Rostov carried a headline that said “a UFO in the form of a ball was shot down in the sky.”

Telegram channels that night described how air defense systems in Rostov had been operating. The channel Ostorozhna, Novosti (Caution, News) published a video showing a shining object flying and then exploding in the sky.

“Look, another one has gone,” someone is heard saying in the clip, which was captioned, “another video of the work of Rostov regional air defenses.” A witness told the channel how “there was a very strong explosion” and that “everything in the house shook. We realized that the air defenses were in operation.”

Newsweek has contacted the governor’s office for further comment.

Rostov borders the Sea of Azov, which is connected to the Black Sea by the Strait of Kerch, a strategic location for both sides of the war in Ukraine. Since the start of Vladimir Putin’s invasion, the oblast near Ukraine has been subjected to regular shelling and drone attacks.

In October, Rostov was named as one of six Russian regions and two annexed regions in which Putin introduced a “medium-response level” to the threats posed by the war. This includes restrictions on movement and strengthening public order measures.

He also announced a “maximum response”—effectively martial law—on the four regions he claimed to have annexed but does not fully control; Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk and Luhansk.
