3 March 2105. Charity Action “Feed the Hungry” in Donetsk

00 Feed the Hungry in Donetsk. 03.03.15


This charitable action took place in Donetsk, in Proletariata Raion. They don’t have much, but what they have they share. A post that I saw on Facebook on this had tons of comments from Galician Uniate nationalist swine. Can you believe that they were casting snarky aspersions on those who posted about this? The Uniate slimers deliberately attack civilian areas… the Orthodox leftists in Novorossiya share what they have. Whom would YOU call Christian… whom would you support? Remember what Our Lord Christ said… that His brethren were those who heard His Word and kept it. You can stand for Orthodox compassion and sobornost… or you can stand for Uniate aggression and racism. Choose well… godly socialism or godless crapitalistic greed… your choice WILL show your real character…

RBTH Video… A Glimpse at the Holy Land in Novy Ierusalime Monastery



Click here for page with an embedded two-minute vid with English subs

Patriarch Nikon Minin founded the Novy Ierusalime Monastery  in 1656. He based its design on the famous Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Nikon intended to build a series of holy places in the Moscow suburb of Istra as replicas of the sacred sites of Palestine. The Patriarch lived for eight years in the monastery, devoting all his energy to the construction so that Russians could familiarise themselves with the Passion of Christ without needing to take a long and expensive journey to the Middle East.
