1 June 2016 Is International Children’s Day… A Wish From the Kids in Novorossiya

00 russia we draw peace novorossiya 010616


A peaceful and happy world for all our kids… not just American Anglo Upper Middles! End the wars… end the state-sponsored terrorism… end the funding of religious fanaticism and insurrection… then, our kids could sleep soundly at night. We can extend our hand in peace or draw back the club to strike. Do reflect on the fact that the American Establishment, both Republican and Democratic, chose the latter, and their drooling devotees (both HillyBillys and Trump Chumps) see nothing wrong in that. I call that evil.

Peace for ALL our children… that’s what I work and pray for…

1 June 2016. The Heart of Christian Syria Still Beats…

00 syria you can burn and destroy our churches 010616


I owe great gratitude to two Syrian Orthodox clerics in my faith-life as a believer… Fr John Namey and Archbishop Michael Shaheen. My life would be the poorer without their contributions. Remember… they were first called Christians in Antioch… and Antioch (Antakya) is only Turkish today because the French ran a rigged referendum to favour the Turks. It looks like the Turks were no friends of Syria in the past, just as they’re no friends of Syria today.


Today is the Feastday of St Dmitri Donskoi

Do Not Yield Russian Land: St Sergei Radonezhsky Blessing St Dmitri Donskoi

Igor Sushenok



Today, 1 June, the church honours the memory of Grand Prince St Dmitri Donskoi. He was born in 1350, brought up under the guidance of Metropolitan St Aleksei Byakont of Moscow. Prince Dmitri combined Christian piety with outstanding talents as a statesman. He dedicated himself to uniting the Russian lands and liberating them from the Tatar-Mongolian yoke. Gathering strength for a decisive battle with the Horde, St Dmitri asked the blessing of Righteous St Sergei Radonezhsky. The starets encouraged the prince, sending him the warrior-monks Aleksandr Peresvet and Andrei Oslyabya. After his victory at the Battle of the Kulikovo Polye, on the feastday of the Nativity of the Birthgiver of God, he received the honorific title “Donskoi” (“of the Don”). Prince Dmitri founded the Assumption Monastery on the Dubenke River and built the Church of the Nativity of the Most Holy Birthgiver of God near the graves of his fallen warriors. St Dmitri died on 19 May 1389, with burial at the Cathedral of Archangel St Michael in the Moscow Kremlin.
