Russian Patriarch Kirill sent a “circular letter” to all dioceses in the Moscow Patriarchate to offer two-day prayers for the health of Vladimir Putin. The first day of prayer is the Russian president’s birthday, October 7, when he turns 70. Prayers for Putin’s health will continue the following day, October 8, when St. Sergius of Radonezh is celebrated.

The patriarch calls on bishops, priests and the faithful on the president’s birthday “to pray diligently at home for the health of the Russian head of state”, and the next day he blesses “during the great litany of the Divine Liturgy to include a special request for health and long life of the president”. The liturgy should end with a liturgy.
