Catholics Distribute “Prayer Book of a Revolutionary” (Mолитвенник революционера: Molitvennik revoluyutsionera) on the Maidan

00 Ukrainian rioter 01. 31.01.14


Vasili Anisimov, the head of the UOC/MP press service, said that the Catholics are ratcheting up their rhetoric on the Maidan in Kiev. He said in an interview with the website Radonezh, “Uniates, schismatics, and sectarians feed the revolt on the Maidan. The level of hatred shown by the fomenters of the Maidan often exceeds all reasonable limits. To illustrate this, President Vladimir Putin quoted a Uniate priest in Brussels. In fact, the Catholics distribute A Prayer Book of a Revolutionary (Mолитвенник революционера: Molitvennik revoluyutsionera) to those on the Maidan. It has five recommended prayers, which are really steps, with lengthy explanations. The first instruction is, ‘Rely only on God, asking Him to intervene in our people’s (народа) history’. It claimed that no one could overthrow Filipino dictator Ferdinand Marcos, as only one battalion went over to the rebels. However, [Cardinal Jaime Lachica Sin] called believers out; so, millions took to the streets, checkmating the army, toppling Marcos. The book quoted a 1986 Filipino prayer, adapted to the present situation. The second step says, ‘Every tyranny has its roots in the sins of the people’; this prayer lists sins from abortion to corruption. The third step explains, ‘To forgive one’s enemies doesn’t mean that one refuses to fight’”.

Anisimov told us that the UOC/MP wrote the Catholic Apostolic Nunciature in the Ukraine to explain all this, but they’re still waiting for a response from the Catholics. He went on to say, “The original text of A Prayer Book of a Revolutionary was in Russian, then, they translated it into Ukrainian, as the text has many Russian idioms and Russian loan words. It’s an old compilation, as the data on abortions is six years old. Probably, it’s a generic ideological text that the Catholics adapt to specific countries, where the West feels the need to overthrow ‘tyrants’”.

This is an excerpt of a MUCH longer interview here. There’s much more in the way of foolish claims by the papists, such as the USSR falling due to Pope John Paul II Wojtyła consecrating Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and other such rot. In short, A Prayer Book of a Revolutionary is the usual product of Western illusion and self-centred ignorance. A rather more “jangly” translation of the above is here. It smells like a bad “machine” translation.

20 September 2012. Rod Dreher Chock Fulla It… The Cossacks He Hates are Going to Play a Role in the Upcoming MP/ROCOR Dixie Fry


I heard that the Cossack Congress in America was invited to the big 13 October shindig celebrating the fifth anniversary of the reconciliation between the MP and the ROCOR. It gets better. There’ll be over 200 priests, Archbishop Yustinian Ovchinnikov, Metropolitan Hilarion Kapral, and many honoured guests. Not only that, it’s going to get primo coverage on Pervy Kanal and Radonezh. The Cossacks have the honour of standing vigil at the Myrrh-streaming Kursk Root Icon of the Mother of God, including the molieben before it.

Therefore, the Cossacks, whom Roddie Dreher denigrates, will have an honoured part of this significant celebration. Dreher, Freddie M-G, Fathausen, et al will have none. Fancy that… there IS justice in this world, after all. Rod… stop hanging about with worthless godless Russophobic trash like Pat Buchanan and the American Enterprise Institute… it’s NOT seemly.
