To spend life in peace

№91(5506)19.05.11 The idea to restore the Christian tradition of women worship may be implemented through a new holiday. 

The Belarusian Womens Union intends to restore the festive week, celebrated in the old days in Slavonic lands and devoted to St. Myrrhbearers. In point of fact, the International Women’s Day was introduced as a political red-letter day, without any spiritual load, - says Nadezhda Ermakova, chairwoman of the Belarusian Women’s Society. Nevertheless, the spring holiday (March 8) is appreciated by many people, so no one is going to cancel it.
