Patriarch Kirill obliges mother superior of a Moscow monastery to sell her luxury Mercedes

Moscow, July 27, Interfax - Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia blessed Hegumenia Feofania (Miskina), Mother Superior of the Intercession Monastery in Moscow, to sell S-class Mercedes Benz, which was in her possession, speaker of the Russian Orthodox Church Vladimir Legoyda says.

"The primate of the Russian Church pointed out that donations to the monastery should be used for social and charitable purposes," Legoyda wrote in his Telegram channel.

The patriarch reminded of his blessing to all clerics and monks not to use cars, which are considered luxury, and to register vehicles required for work on convents.

Earlier, mass media and social nets widely spread the information that Hegumenia Feofania purchased a Mercedes at the cost of 9.5 million rubles on her own name.
