RU: Waterloo: 17 Feb: Patriarch Kiril: Bless Antarctica polar explorers & penguins
17 February 2016: His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia visited the Bellingshausen Station on Waterloo Island in Antarctica. From Havana where he had an unprecedented historic meeting with Pope Francis on 12 February; Patriarch Kirill travelled to Paraguay and then to Antarctica with a stop off in Punta Arenas, Chile; the southernmost city on the South American continent and the departure point for expeditions for Antarctica.
The first ever visit of the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church to Antarctica took place at the invitation of the head of the Russian Antarctic Expedition, V. Lukin:
‘At present, we begin preparing for the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica by the Russian South Polar Expedition (1819-1821) commanded by Faddey F. Bellingshausen and Mikhai P. Lazarev. The expedition sloops Vostok and Mirny reached for the first time the costs of an unknown sixth continent on January 28, 1820, and Russian seamen became the first people on our planet to see, describe and map the unknown costs. This great geographic discovery enabled Russia to assert herself as one of the leaders of the world community in the exploration of the remote icy continent. … Having learnt about your intention to visit Latin America, we wholeheartedly invite you to visit, if possible, our Bellingshausen Station in which your compatriots have been on work watch since 1968. For us it is especially important in anticipation of the glorious jubilee of the Russian discoveries in Antarctica. We ask your Primatial prayers for all the Russian polar explorers who work in the land of Antarctica’.
Patriarch Kirill met with the head of the station: V. Cheberdak and the Russian expedition crew and with numerous members of other expeditions, including the explorers from the Chilean, Chinese and other stations; in the common room; where Patriarch Kirill stated:
“There is something that makes Antarctica a very important and significant place for the entire humanity. This is the only continent without weapons, without any military activities, where no researches aimed at creating new means of destruction are conducted. And whatever country they represent, all polar explorers are a family. They lend each other a helping hand when needed and selflessly share their resources. It is an image of a perfect humanity which proves that people are able to live in this way, without borders, without weapons, without hatred, but cooperate and feel like the members of one family.”
“A Russian church built in Antarctica is named in honor of the Holy Trinity. The Trinity is revealed to us as a perfect image of unity. The first church in Russia dedicated to the Holy Trinity was built in the 14th century, when the country consisted of many fragmented warring feudal principalities. The consequences of this division were tragic: the country was occupied for over two hundred years. But a monk named Sergius built a church in honor of the Holy Trinity in a dense forest close to Moscow and said the words that have become a motto of the unification of Russia: “To overcome the hateful discord of this world by beholding the unity of the Holy Trinity.
“It is remarkable that the church of the Holy Trinity is located in Antarctica, where the explorers overcome “the hateful discord of this world” by their life and work. Antarctica is a place of a really special spiritual and humanitarian significance for the planet. I thank you for the example that you are giving to the world. I am really happy that I was able to witness your common life. May the Lord help each and all to keep this Antarctic brotherhood and to work for the benefit of the entire humanity.”
Accompanied by members of the delegation of the Russian Orthodox church; Patriarch Kiril also celebrated a thanksgiving at the Orthodox church of the Holy Trinity, the only stationary church in Antarctica; prayed for the souls of the 64 Russian explorers who died exploring Antarctica; presented the parish with an icon of St. Vladimir Equal-to-the-Apostles and embroidered shrouds; and of course congregated with penguins.
‘Bellingshausen’ is the Soviet-Russian Antarctic station on the King George (Waterloo) Island. It is named after Faddey Bellingshausen (1778-1852), a Russian seafarer, admiral and the discoverer of Antarctica. It was founded by the Soviet Antarctic Expedition on February 22, 1968. It is the northernmost, that is, the closest to the equator, Russian Antarctic station. As of 2015, there are eight year-round and five seasonal specialists working at it. The Chilean Antarctic expedition ‘Frei’ (Presidente Eduardo Frei Montalva) is located in the immediate vicinity of the Bellingshausen Station.
The idea to build a permanent church in Antarctica was put forward in the 1990s by the head of the Russian Antarctic Expedition (RAE), Valery Lukin and the captain of the Metelitsa women’s team, Valentina Kuznetsova. It was supported by His Holiness Patriarch Alexy II. The Church in Antarctica Foundation was established at the same time.
The church was designed by Svetlana Rybak and constructed by Alexander Schmidt. It was built of cedar and larch logs by a team of carpenters from Gorno-Altaysk at the Kyzyl-Ozek village. The building was let ‘settle down’ for a year; then it was disassembled and transported by trucks to Kaliningrad and from it to Antarctica, where it was re-assembled by an 8-member team of within 60 days. The wooden carved iconostasis was made by masters from Dmitrov near Moscow. A small residential house was built close by for the clergy.
Hieromonk Kallistrat Romanenko, now Bishop of Gorno-Altaysk and Chemal, who was at that time a monk of the St. Sergius of the Trinity, was the first rector of the Antarctic church until March 2005. Since that time, the Monastery’s monks, just as the researchers, have relieved one another every year.
