Divine Liturgy in the Cathedral of the Assumption in Moscow

I have always been rather taken by the iconography and architecture of the Cathedral of the Assumption in Moscow; it must be one of my favourite Eastern churches.

Accordingly, I was delighted to come across the following photos, taken January 20th, 2011, of the Divine Liturgy celebrated in this church by Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, showing it in liturgical use.

Let us pray for the unity of East and West.
