As soon as the news of Metr. Dionysius’ arrival at Smolensk reached Moscow, the tsar’s secretary, Protopopov, was dispatched to accompany Dionysius to Moscow and to debrief him along the road, inquiring who had attended the council, whether they had prayed for the welfare of the tsar, whether they mentioned the name of Patr. Job in their prayers. He also asked if the Turkish sultan was informed, and if so, what was his reaction. In short, Russians discarded diplomacy in favor of political expedience; and the answers Protopopov got were less than what Moscow had been looking for.
There they congratulated him as patriarch-designee, and wished him many years. The actual ordination of Job was scheduled for January 26, a few days thence. In the center of Uspenski Cathedral, a scaffold was erected and on it three seats were placed: the central one for the tsar, and on either side of him Jeremiah and Job. The Tsar’s gilded chair was enveloped with blue-green velvet and above it red cloth was stretched. The areas for the patriarchs were covered with bluegreen cloth, while the chairs were covered with black velvet.
Then Job recited to Tsar Feodor a speech according to the traditional text, after which the assembly wished the tsar longevity, and the choir sang again. This was repeated for Patr. Jeremiah, and both patriarchs blessed the entire assembly in all four directions. Tsar Feodor left Uspenski Cathedral and went to his own quarters, and the prelates entered the patriarchal chamber to await their invitation to the table of the tsar. Decorated sleighs drawn by grey steeds wearing gold trappings were sent to deliver the patriarchs to dinner.
