莫斯科 – 縱使當地氣溫只有零下23度,數以萬計的俄羅斯人週六參與了主顯節落冰水清洗罪孽的宗教儀式。

In Russia, several hundred thousand Russian Orthodox believers symbolically washed clean of their sins With traditional ice baths. In the freezing cold – minus 23 degrees – women and men jumped into the icy water!

根據俄內政部數據,單單在莫斯科16.5萬人參與了這個宗教儀式。而在很多地方都把冰洞刻成十字架形狀,而神父也會事先為冰水「祝聖」。

More than 165 000 people attended the ceremony in Moscow, according to the Russian Interior Ministry. In many places, the holes were cut in a cross shape in the ice. The water is blessed by priests before minds and souls are purified.
