Archpriest Smirnov took the rumors of his death with humor
Moscow. October 9. INTERFAX - the honorary head of the Patriarchal Commission on family issues, Archpriest Dimitri Smirnov, took with humor the rumors about his death, which appeared today in social networks.
"Today there was a lot of speculation about the state of health of Dmitry Smirnov's father. I finally got through to him. He is waiting for a visit with a banana, jokes, greeted as "dead Dimitri". He says that the demonic world is raging! And "if God is for us, then who is against us," Yevgeny Nikiforov, head of the Radonezh Orthodox society, told Interfax on Friday.
Earlier today, Archpriest Smirnov's entourage denied rumors about his death. Priest Fyodor Lukyanov, who recently replaced father Dimitri as head of the Patriarchal Commission on family issues, said that the Archpriest's struggle with the consequences of the coronavirus is not easy, but "the dynamics are positive."
The priest suggested that someone might have got it wrong, having learned that the day before in the Church where father Dimitri serves, a funeral service was held for one of the clerics who died after a long illness.
