A video that has now gone viral on social media shows some soldiers praying and worshipping the almighty on the battlefield.
In the clip, the soldiers are seen clutching their riffles and singing emotionally: “My song everyday, father draw me nearer, draw me nearer, nearer to thee.”
Numbering about 15, the soldiers sang repeatedly as they performed what could be likened to Eucharistic celebration, one of the sacraments in Orthodox churches.
One of them who acted as a Catholic priest raised up what looked like the communion, with his colleagues completely immersed in the moment.
The location of the troops has yet to be verified.
