MOSCOW, January 6. /TASS/. Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia begins the Christmas service in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow.

"First and foremost, we are all looking for the Kingdom of God in our lives, for a special world and a special arrangement of relations between people and God. This world lives by a special law - the law of love. This is the main and the greatest divine law of life," the Patriarch said before the service.

Several thousands of believers came to the main Russian cathedral. The Federation Council and State Duma deputies and other senior officials are also present.

The service in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior is broadcasted live on Channel One, Rossiya 1, Spas TV channels, and online on the official website of the Russian Orthodox Church.
