On September 30, 2021, the presentation of the Chinese version of Patriarch Kirill of Moscow’s book In His Own Words will take place at the Chinese Patriarchal Metochion.
The collection contains thoroughly selected passages from His Holiness Patriarch Kirill’s sermons, academic articles, papers, speeches and interviews, with each day of the calendar year having an appropriate passage.
In the book, a reader can take a look at Patriarch Kirill as a pastor of the Church of Christ, a thinker addressing pressing problems of today’s world and a person endowed with a profound spiritual experience and a unique charisma of a preacher. The publication of this book in Chinese on the eve of the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church’s 75th birthday reflects the interest of the whole world in the personality of Patriarch Kirill himself and in the life of the whole Russian Orthodox Church.
