Video. On St Maksim Sandovich the New Martyr of Lemkovshchyna…

Fr Mikhail Shuvar (1958-2009), he went to an early grave due to injuries inflicted by an American-paid Uniate mob… sadly enough, St Maksim and Fr Gavriil weren’t our last martyrs at the hands of the Uniates

______________________________

Canonisation of St Maksim in 1994… This is over an hour-and-a-half long… The late Fr Basil Stroyen is visible at 1:27.18

******

This is a service to St Maksim from Gorlice (POLAND)… the total vid is over an hour in length…

******

Service in commemoration of the Carpatho-Russian victims of the Habsburgs killed at the Talerhof concentration camp during World War I. This vid is about an hour in length.

******

Whenever you see a smiling Uniate and hear their lies about being “Orthodox in Union with Rome”, bring St Maksim and all the other Orthodox victims murdered by the Habsburgs, Poles, and Croats to mind. DO NOT HATE. If you do so, the devil wins! Equally, do NOT allow Uniate lies a forum in Orthodox venues. Beware of a snake who calls himself “Josephus Flavius”… don’t reply to him… simply spam him, and be done with him. Remember Fr Mikhail Shuvar and how the Uniates attacked him without mercy! Close your ears to their sweet words… reflect on this, most of the ignoramus Anglican semi-converts are “soft” on Uniatism (they refuse to give up their beloved “Branch Theory”), as are the pseudo-intellectuals at SVS… that’s why most American Orthodox haven’t heard of St Maksim or of Fr Mikhail (His Holiness Patriarch Kirill noted his passing, by the way). The defence of the Church is in YOUR hands… not some cockamamie “Magisterium”… do act accordingly.

Can you believe that a loudmouth smarcacz of a young priest gave a friend of mine a hard time about this? Grow up and get a life, Father! Just because you’re a priest doesn’t mean that you can push people around. Sheesh! Now, you can help me wash the dishes… hey, “a priest is a priest only when he’s vested”… never forget that. As I said, you can help me with the dishes…

Oh, yes… take a nip before you start… use the mug with the inscription, “Even monks imbibe”…

20 August 2011. “The Revival Will Not be Televised… The Revival Will be Live!” Check Out This Lenten Calendar from KP

The above Lenten calendar appeared in KP… Komsomolskaya Pravda… one of the main tabs in Moscow. The equivalent would be if The Sun or The Daily News put out a full-colour supplement religious page during Lent. Who woulda thunk it! THIS testifies to the depth of the revival in Russia… KP wouldn’t print this if there wasn’t a demand for it. It’s been some 25-odd years since the ending of state persecution of religion in 1985, and 20-odd years since the end of official atheism in 1991. Taking that into consideration, practise in Russia is VERY good, indeed.

Don’t listen to the chowderheads in Stokoe’s comboxes (especially, Francis Frost) or listen to zapadnik nutters like Nikita Struve or Svetlana Vais. Take a look at KP! Just shows to go ya that although there’s a good bit to go yet, we’ve made a good start… and that’s all that matters, kids…

20 August 2011. A Point of Unity. August: The Month of Feasts, Part Six. 29 August, The Feast of the Wonderworking Icon of Christ “Not Made by Hands” “Walnut Spas”

******

Editor’s Foreword:

Can you forgive me? I FORGOT the last feast of the Lord in August, on 29 August, the Feast of the Wonderworking Icon of ChristNot Made by Hands”. Here are some images from that feast…

Editor’s Afterword:

Peasants called the Church holiday on 29 August “Third Spas”, “Walnut Spas”, “Canvas Spas”, or Bread Spas”. It’s easy to figure out that this was the Third Feast of the Lord in August, that nuts appeared to be ripened by this day, and that much of the harvest was in by then. However, it’s a bit harder to explain the “canvas” bit. On 29 August, the Church celebrates the transfer of a wonderworking icon of the Saviour from Edessa to Constantinople in 944, a piece of cloth on which, according to the Gospel story, was imprinted an image of the face of Jesus Christ. “By Third Spas, we’ll make our kvass”… after this day, according to folklore, the last swallow leaves and winter starts its entrance. It’s the first full day of feast after the end of the Assumption Lent; it’s the unofficial “end of summer” holiday (it’s the Russian analogue of Labour Day). The beginning of September brings “The Day of Knowledge” (the first day of school), the first autumn chills… time to clean out the stove and to check the caulking for leaks… winter does come EARLY in this part of the world…
