Fr Mikhail Shuvar, Confessor and Warrior of the Faith in Galicia… if you associate with Uniates or schismatics, you spit on his grave… full stop...
When a little freedom appears, when they’ll open and restore churches and monasteries, then, all false teaching will come out; the demons and secret atheists (Catholics, Uniates, Ukrainian self-ordained, and others) will fiercely take up arms against the Orthodox Russian Church, its unity, and its sobornost. A godless authority will support these heretics; therefore, they’d take churches away from the Orthodox and slaughter the faithful. Then, a Metropolitan of Kiev (not worthy of the name) together with like-minded hierarchs and priests will strongly shake the Russian Church. His lawlessness will frighten and amaze the whole world. He himself will go off into eternal perdition, like Judas. However, all these slanders of the evil one and false teachings will disappear in Russia, and there’d be One Orthodox Russian Church.
Elder Iona of Odessa said:
The Smuta in a country smaller than Russia will come a year after my death. The Smuta will continue for two years, after which a Russian tsar will arrive. The first Easter will be full of blood, the second with hunger, and the third with victory.
It’s clear that both of these prophecies deal with the Ukraine. Remember, in Orthodoxy, prophecies are not “what will be”… but rather “what could be”. Both these prophecies are working themselves out in the contemporary “Ukraine”. Elder Iona died in December 2012… the Evromaidantsy Smuta started in Kiev in late 2013. Easter 2014 WAS full of blood… Easter 2015 in Kiev IS hungry… but the elder tells us that next Easter will be victorious. St Lavrenty said, “However, all these slanders of the evil one and false teachings will disappear in Russia, and there’d be One Orthodox Russian Church”. Is this what WILL be? God willing, yes… but the Church teaches that we aren’t automatons… that we MUST exercise our Free Will. Shall we? Only time will tell us that…
