21 November 2014. From Happier Days… “A Rusin Prayer”… with Fr Dmitri Sidor

00 Fr Dmitri Sidor. 08.04.14

******

_______________________________

At present, Fr D D Sidor, the leader of the Rusin nationalists, is under house-arrest by the Uniate junta. I fear for his safety… after all, history tells us that the Uniate pigs murdered Blessed Gavriil Kostelnik (and here) and that they were accomplices in the murder of St Maksim Sandovich, along with being complicit in the many killed at Talerhof. These people showed their mettle in the past… they were murderers, thugs, collaborationists, and terrorists then… so they remain, today. Then, they whored for Nazi Germany… today, they whore for the USA… what’s the difference? The Uniates will gladly sell out their homeland to Western interests so long as they get to indulge their “Consciousness” (and get to be the local bully boys of the West)… it tells you much of their character as an institution (along with their running-dog partners, the “Ukrainian Orthodox”). I know that the world is often very crank, indeed… but do we truly deserve to see such depths of depravity?

Pray for Fr Dmitri… his life is in danger so long as he remains in the power of the Uniates. God do preserve him and us from the blight of the Unia…

1 November 2014. From the Russian Web… As It Was, As It Is, As It Ever Shall Be!

00 Tsar Nikolai Pavlovich. 01.11.14

______________________________

When I saw something like the above on the Russian web, I knew that I had to “English” it and bring it to you. Thanks to Google Image Search and PhotoShop, I was able to recreate what I saw. This IS truth…

The “Ukraine” is a legal fiction that doesn’t reflect reality. Great Russia is an undoubted reality… as is Malorossiya, Novorossiya, the Lvovshchina, Belarus, and Podkarpatskaya Rus. All of them (and more) make up Holy Rus.. which isn’t “Russian”… which isn’t “Ukrainian”… which isn’t “Byelorussian”… which isn’t “Rusin”… it’s all of them… it’s a unity that’s greater than the sum of its parts. No… Great Russians aren’t the “dictators” of Holy Rus… we’re merely the largest group within it (which is something else entirely). All of us have something to bring to the table… each party has an indispensable piece of the puzzle. There are no “low Russians” nor “high Russians”… those who think in such terms miss the entire point of it all. There is one Orthodoxy that shines forth in myriad ways… that’s something that we Great Russians must acknowledge. There is one Orthodoxy that shines through all the differences… that’s something that the Little Russians and Rusins must acknowledge. That is, we’ll have unity, both religious and secular, when we understand that the only path to it is mutual humility. Shall we realise it? That’s up to you…

As it was, as it is, as it ever shall be!

29 October 2014. Here’s the “One Thing Needful”

00 Glittersnipe.com. Get Your Shit Together. 2013

______________________________

We must start with organising the house from within. That’s our responsibility. The most important thing is that the Church, as an institution, serves the community.

Tawadros Sulaymān

Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and all Africa

Coptic Orthodox Church

Our Russian Orthodox Church should focus on the “one thing needful”… putting our house into order before we even say anything to anyone else. Our most crying need is to unite our fractious body. The OCA, ROCOR, and MP/USA and Canada are one sociological whole. Why do we tolerate such disunity? The Cold War is over. We should put all minor issues to the side. Better heads than mine have told me that the Calendar issue is something best left to the healing hand of time. However, there’s one thing that many Great Russians haven’t faced… their unconscious assumption that their ways are the only ones in the Church. I wrote a friend:

It’s time for Russian Orthodox people here in the diaspora to start seriously talking unity… it’s the only way that we’ll keep the feral in check. I’ll be blunt… I think that there’d be a “Rump OCA” after such a union… but the healthy parts would “come home”. It’s TIME… it’s time to overlook minor disagreements… we NEED to be together… that’s the lesson of the Ukrainian Civil War… the Ukie nutters have unity, ergo their voice is heard. We’re shunted to the side… it’s our own fault!

They replied:

You’re aware that Great Russian chauvinism is behind our disunity? They disdain Carpatho-Russians, Byelorussians, and Russophile Ukrainians and THAT has been the cause of our disunity. “We’re ‘HIGH Russians’ and You People are ‘Low Russians’. You will do as WE say”. UGH. Can you fight THAT?

I shot back:

Veliki Rus is the core of Holy Rus, but it isn’t the only part… Great Russia is the largest partner at table, but not the only one. God willing, “High Russians” like me can help move things right…

My interlocutor wished me well, and admired my lack of chauvinism. However, we all need to look at our attitudes. Are we furthering “organising the house from within?” If not, the Church can’t serve the community; it lacks any real purpose. It then becomes a pseudo-temple… an abomination. We shouldn’t be talking about ecumenical contacts and missionary work when we can’t even set our own rooms to rights. We have work to do…

Can these dry bones live? It IS up to us!
