Representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church said it was willing to continue to sanctify Russian missiles, if they so request from Roscosmos. This was told by Deputy Chairman of the Synodal Department of the Moscow Patriarchate on relations of the Church with society and the media, Vakhtang Kipshidze, the publication of “Moscow Says”.
According to Kipshidze, Russian Orthodox Church has always consecrated the results of the labor of the faithful, regardless of what field they work. He called this ritual “ancient tradition” that has nothing to do with the result of the application of talents.
“Man, talking to the Church with the request to sanctify the results of his work, shows his faith, and the Church always goes to meet him, if the results of his work are intended to benefit other people,” said Kipshidze.
The question of the consecration of the rockets rebounded after Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed Dmitry Rogozin to head the state Corporation “Roscosmos”: this post was previously headed by Igor Komarov. The new CEO promised to make personnel changes point character in the aerospace field.
