Interview with Metropolitan Kliment of Kaluga and Borovsk
(Igor Grigorevich Kondratovich - the coordinator of an exhibition of orthodox art)
I.K.-Your Sovereign, let us thank you for support and for you could find time to visit exhibition.Credit: orthodox-expo.ru - международные православные выставки
К.- I wish God help to all icon artists . May you work for God s fame. May God care you all.
I.K.-Your Sovereign, our participant from Canada has a question for you.
А.М.- Your Sovereign, hope you like the Exhibition, there are some ideas for making them in the USA. May be in Metropolitan, for Russian people are deeply interested in it.
К.-.I guess it’s a first exhibition, later it could be held abroad too. It may be held not only in America, but in Europe too because a world need to get acquainted with Russian icons and Orthodox belief. I was working in the USA, I know their interest to Orthodox art.
A.М.- Thanks God .I saw with my own eyes how people are interested in it. People of other beliefs, of different countries. Many of them are interested in spiritual growth in Russia, and it would be a good example for their spiritual development.
К.- May God help you in the USA, in Canada to accept and to develop Orthodox art.
А.М.- Thank God, Your Sovereign. Thank you.
