26 July 2016. Well Done, Thou Good and Faithful Servant

His Eminence André Cardinal Vingt-Trois, Archbishop of Paris, Chairman of the Bishops’ Conference of France

Your Eminence!

With a sense of deep sorrow, we received the news of the terrible crime in a Catholic church in Rouen… a terakt* during liturgy, which led to a hostage situation and to the killing of Priest Jacques Hamel. This heinous crime occurred in the Holy Place. It was striking in its inhuman cruelty; it violated every moral norm. It doesn’t and can’t have any justification. I express my sincere condolences to you, to the clergy and faithful of the Roman Catholic Church in France, and to the relatives, friends, and spiritual children of the murdered pastor. May God, who so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life (Gospel according to St John 3.16), give rest to the soul of His servant in the mansions of heaven, give comfort and support to the victims, and give peace and blessing to the French people.

  • Terakt: Russian acronym for “terrorist action”

With love in the Lord,

When a Christian or group of Christians dies because they trust that Christ is the faithful revelation of God and of a new humanity, their death is not like Obi-Wan Kenobi’s last words to Darth Vader, “Strike me down and I’ll become more powerful than you could imagine”. Resurrection isn’t about returning to fight worldly means of power with the powers known to this world. No… as the Body of Christ, our death is like the death of Jesus, a great humility accepted voluntarily for the life of the world… with all kinds of conflicting human emotions. “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends”… even friends that at the moment look a lot like enemies. Our hope (and our vindication) isn’t in a resurrection that makes us more powerful than our temporal enemies, but a resurrection to eternal life… a great victory for ALL persons over the enemies of all whom God has made in His image, all whom God cherishes… every last human-being. Those enemies are sin, famine, disease, pestilence, sword, decay, calamities, death, and the Accuser. If we’re in Christ, our enemies are no longer our human brothers and sisters.

A witness of Christ, Fr Jacques Hamel, martyr. Pray for his soul, his witness, for Christians throughout the world suffering persecution.

Editor:

You can say what you will about Cardinal Seán… he walks the walk when it comes to aiding the poor and needy (a good Orthodox analogue would be Bishop Panteleimon Shatov). This Sunday, light a candle when you go to liturgy and say a private prayer for the repose of Fr Jacques… priests can say a private prayer as they do the Proskomidi. The canons allow this. We’re Christians… that’s what we do.

Look at HH… he shows us the way. ‘Nuff said…

2 May 2016. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky… I’m Just a Simple Girl

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. I'm Just a Simple Girl. 2016

________________________________

Do we know the fate of the girls who poured the petrol into the Molotov Cocktails in front of the Odessa Dom Profsoyuzov? We don’t know. Today, where is Alla, Kristina, or Dasha? It may be they’re about to get married or have a holiday in Europe. Where are they now and how do they live? However, that’s a stupid question. They lead normal lives. They’re just girls who wanted to be happy. For that, the others must die.

The most foul actions involve the most ordinary people… many of whom simply get caught up in events or who are trying to avoid even worse situations. The people who poured the petrol into the bombs aren’t the criminals… those who planned the arson and egged others on are the criminals. That’s why John Demjanjuk was innocent… he was a perimeter guard at most… he ordered nothing; he planned nothing. The same with these girls… some were simply there when it happened… some wanted to impress some boy or some authority figure… some were afraid of what’d happen if they refused. Were they guilty? No… but they were part of a heinous crime…

We live in a fallen, fallen world… let those without sin cast the first stone…

Honour Those Killed by the Fascists in the Dom Profsoyuzov Arson

00 I am Odessa 020516

______________________________

Today, honour all those killed in the Dom Profsoyuzov arson in Odessa by observing a moment of silence. They all gave their lives to free the Ukraine from the obscurantist fascist junta. Rest in peace, our friends! We’ll never forget you; you’ll forever stay in our hearts!

The Uniates and schismos sowed the wind… they WILL reap the whirlwind. The patriots will see to it that the fascists responsible for this murderous arson will be strung up, no doubt (if they’re lucky… if not, the relatives of the victims will have their way with them). The curial/Anglo gambit is in shambles… now, it’s only a matter of time. Dear God, do cut it short to spare the innocents…

2 May 2016. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky… Odessa: Pain, Grief, Remembrance

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. Odessa. Pain, Grief, Remembrance. 2016

_______________________________

On this day, an event took place that showed everyone the ugly evil essence of the infernal Maidan coup. We saw Russian people burned alive, but the world community just ignored it all. Indeed, the deaths of these Russian people just didn’t register with them. Today, the Ukrainian junta ringed Odessa with troops and police. They understood what they did, so, they’re very frightened of a Russian backlash. We mourn; we believe that the criminals will reap a fair reward for their actions.
