Patriarch Kirill believes that the Kingdom of Heaven is bigger than cosmos

Moscow, November 30, Interfax - Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia expressed the opinion that the Divine Kingdom exceeds the size of outer space.

"What are our good deeds before the greatness of eternity, before these unknown worlds that await man! That our good deeds are even before the greatness of the cosmos! But the Divine Kingdom is bigger than any cosmos," the patriarch said in a sermon at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior.

According to him, "we can't even imagine, we don't have a yardstick, a criterion by which we could assess the greatness of this future life."

However, the primate believes that it is easy to touch this greatness - you need to have faith and do good deeds to enter it.

"The Lord teaches us that salvation comes only by His power, only by Divine power, only by grace in response to our good deeds. May the Lord help us all to combine the action of His great power, His grace that saves us, with our tiny, insignificant, but nevertheless good deeds, even in their minuteness pleasing to God," Patriarch Kirill concluded.
