“A house isn’t a home until it has a cat in it”… “One cat makes a home, many cats make a village”… that be Russian folk wisdom, kids… so, you were wondering why Russian soldiers have a “thing” for cats?

2 November 2015. No Words Necessary Department…

In a Greek country town, the fascist occupiers and their local collaborators set up a stage. They gathered the people and promised them all sorts of material incentives to help search for Jews. Many appeared to be moved by this and seemed ready to help the fascists. The local pappas came on the scene, walking through the crowd, looking at everyone. When he got in front of them, he simply said:

Our Lord Christ lived and died a Jew.

Nothing more. He left with composure and dignity, not in a hurry at all. The crowd dispersed.

That is the Churchly attitude to anti-Semitism. Oppose it wherever you find it. It’s most common in the ROCOR (and other Russian Orthodox bodies, too), most often found amongst “conservatives” (both White Guard and American varieties). Have a care… anti-Semitism can rot out your Orthodoxy from the inside out. Like all hate, there’s nothing positive about it. Be on your guard… the times are evil…
