sometimes even I, fear my Alevtina

and she is not close to my heart,

but you can't run from yourself.

Then I think -

She is my sharpener, with her I get sharp.

And if she wouldn't be at times so evil,

would I be as good as I am?

- Good day!

- Good day!

Most of the time, God gives us wives that

are different from us.

As is the case with me and my

Alevtina Andreevna.

I am thin, tall and gentle

she is round and roly-poly.

If you look at us from the side,

I look like one and she looks like zero.

But together we form ten.

Without me, without one, she would have only been zero.

But also I without her, without zero,

I would remain one only.

Kiril, the soldier. Come.

You came on leave? Come to the church.

Like that's what I needed...I will only

go to the cemetery, to visit my father's grave.

In vain. Today is the day of all saints,

it is your celebration (by name) also.

Kiril the Alexandrite and Belozerskii, our neighbor.

With you priests, every day

is a celebration.


Blessed is the kingdom of the Father and

of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

With peace, let us pray to the Lord.

Lord, have mercy.

For the peace up high and for the

salvation of our souls, let us pray to the Lord.

For our God protected country,

for her leaders and her army,

let us pray to the Lord.

For the ones travelling by sea, on land, for the sick,

for the ones who are distressed and worried,

for the enslaved ones, for their salvation

let us pray to the Lord.

In order for us to be delivered from all trouble, anger, danger

and need, let us pray to the Lord.

Defend, save, have mercy and protect us, oh God,

with your aptness.

Citizens of the Soviet Union,

The soviet government and its leader,

tovarish (comrade) Stalin
