To the heaven for the dream. Spiritual flight.
Today Father Iov is called the confessor of cosmonauts. During recent 10 years, priest Iov has not only become the spiritual mentor of the cosmonaut team, but himself has actively participated in the cosmonaut training, he has performed many zero gravity flights, trainings in the Hydrolaboratory, flights in the L-39, many times has followed cosmonauts to Baikonur and met the crews returning to the ground from the space flights .
Being a schoolboy, future priest dreamed of becoming a cosmonaut. And even was getting ready to enter the flight school, in order to try to pass through the selection to become a cosmonaut. But the Lord took him in a different way. And nevertheless interest in space flights has not disappeared. Seeing how well and wisely our world is arranged, the heart of the priest dragged more to the One who created it all.
And today Father Iov, with God’s help and Vegitel support, decided to climb up to the new height for himself, rise to the Edge of Space in order to get as close as possible to his old dream. And to complete this flight he came with a space mentor – Hero of the Soviet Union, pilot cosmonaut of USSR Alexandr Stepanovich Viktorenko.
