20 November 2011. St Maksim Sandovich was NOT Alone! Pan-Slavism Lived… Pan-Slavism Lives… Pan-Slavism Shall Live!

Petr Chelčický: Do Not Repay Evil with Evil

from the cycle, “The Slavonic Epic”, nr 12

Alfons Maria Mucha

1918

______________________________

Many of you are aware of St Maksim Sandovich of Gorlice, the Protomartyr of the Lemkovshchyna. A smaller number, but still large, knows of the Austro-Hungarian concentration camps at Talerhof and Terezín. However, most Orthodox people in the USA aren’t aware that the Russophiles and Pan-Slavs scared the bejesus out of the Habsburgs (and their Uniate lickspittle running-dogs). They weren’t scared of the Poles or Croats… the Croats and Poles were loyal to the Dual Monarchy. They weren’t scared of the Uniate leadership (both lay and ecclesiastical)… they were in their pockets. They WERE scared absolutely shitless of the Pan-Slav Movement. Look at what happened in America… thousands of Uniates “came home” to the Mother Church. The Lemkos, Slovaks, Czechs, and Carpatho-Russians scared them… the spectre of the po-nashemu people rising up against their Habsburg oppressors haunted their sleep. Ergo, when war broke out, they started shooting Russophile activists such as St Maksim.

However, how many of you are aware of the Pan-Slav ferment in the musical and art worlds of the Dual Monarchy? Fearful Habsburg secret police agents tailed musicians like Leoš Janáček and artists like Alfons Maria Mucha. Yet… Pan-Slavism lived! Mucha produced his seminal The Slavonic Epic… a series of 20 historical paintings documenting the historical path of the Slavs. Janáček wrote In the Mists and On an Overgrown Path… we shouldn’t talk about music and art… we should LOOK at art and LISTEN to music…

In the Mists…

On an Overgrown Path…

______________________________

As for the art, I just finished posting the entire Slavonic Epic on Art and Faith, Too… click here to go to the first painting. Before you do anything else, look at the “tags” and click “The Slavonic Epic”… that’ll bring up all the works in order. Everything has links to most obscure points, so, you’ll learn a lot about the Western Slavs, in particular.

Any time that you hear some Uniate claim, “I’m Orthodox in Union with Rome”… remember St Maksym… remember St Aleksei Kabalyuk, remember Blessed Gavriil Kostelnik… remember Fr Mikhail Shuvar. Ask your Uniate interlocutor if his church honours St Maksim… do note the silence that’ll greet that question. Yes, Virginia, Pan-Slavism not only lived, it lives now… and we’ll pass on the flame to the next generation, too…

This Just In Department:

A friend of mine wrote me:

You might like to know that Mucha’s niece became Orthodox and a matushka in the Czech Republic (she died quite recently) and Janáček’s grand-daughter also became Orthodox. She’s in the USA in a ROCOR parish.

Who woulda thunk it? SMALL WORLD…

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.

21 July 2011. Relics and Video of St Maksim Sandovich… Confessor of the Faith Under the Habsburg Uniate Yoke

______________________________

Above, we see relics of St Maksim Sandovich of Lemkovshchyna, murdered by the Habsburg authorities on trumped-up charges of spying at the beginning of World War I. Actually, they arrested and killed him for being an effective preacher against the Unia, whose hierarchy were bum-kissing lickspittles of the Habsburgs. Yes, sir… the Uniates were obsequious running-dog lackeys of the Poles, the Habsburgs, and the Second Polish Republic, just as they’re the willing Step n’ Fetchits of the American Neoliberals… all of whom attacked the Church in Galicia, Transcarpathia, Byelorussia, and the Lemkovshchyna for their low political ends.

The Uniates are NOT our friends. Pray for the poor rank n’ filers… they’re not responsible for what their leadership does. Be kind to them, let your good-will be sincere and unfeigned, but don’t validate the Unia itself. The people aren’t guilty… the organisation that they belong to is. That’s an important and critical distinction. Don’t give any quarter to “Josephus Flavius”… and don’t trust his website Byzantine Texas, either. Ponder this, the konvertsy are gaga over him… they won’t listen if you tell them that Uniatism opposes Christ’s Church. That’s one of the ways that makes it clear that they’re not one with us, never have been, and will leave us in future (excoriating us for our “hatefulness”, no doubt).

Here’s a video of Lemkovshchyna, in 1987… at 6:52 minutes into this video you will see the late Fr Maksim, the son of the saint:

******

St Maksim Sandovich is amongst the saints… Fr Gavriil Kostelnik shall be amongst the saints (the case for his canonisation is going forward in the UOC/MP), and the late Fr Mikhail Shuvar will be amongst the saints in future (Patriarch Kirill noted his passing)… all three names are absent from “Josephus Flavius'” writing… I wonder why. Is it because all three made an effective witness against the Unia’s falsity, and gave their lives for the principle of Church Unity? I think that that’s the case here.

Accept no substitutes… the Church is the Church, and that’s that… too many good people such as St Maksim, Fr Gavriil, and Fr Mikhail gave their lives for us to engage in syncretistic and false “dialogue”. If we were to do, their blood would speak against us on the Last Day…

My thanks to my correspondent who passed on the link and the photo…
