29 April 2017. Is Your Parish Still Celebrating? It Should Be…

The above image is of the Красная горка (Krasnaya Gorka: Red Hill) celebration in Dmitrov (Krasnogorsk Raion, Moscow Oblast). Where better to celebrate “Red Hill” than in “Red Hill” Raion? Red Hill is the popular name for Thomas Sunday and for the following week. Obviously, it’s a “baptism” of pre-Christian pagan festivities marking the beginning of spring, people hold dances and fairs, organise bonfires and celebrations, and often hold marriages at this time (it’s thought particularly auspicious). People make another round of Easter Eggs and Cakes and keep the party spirit alive. By the way… the Igumen of the local Monastery of St Dmitri Salunsky blessed this festival…

It’s party hearty until Pentecost… keep it alive until then…

8 March 2017. It’s Our Day! International Women’s Day… URA!

03.12 International Women's Day. 01e

____________________________________

Today is a special day, International Women’s Day. One of the few countries not to observe it is the USA… especially, the “conservative” troglodytes hate it. In like manner, to curry favour with the toddler Anglos, the Uniate junta in the Ukraine cancelled the holiday. That shows you how retrograde and subservient the Uniates are… whatever their Western puppeteers want, they deliver, in spades, no matter what the cost to the people, no matter what the people want. Don’t forget… this is a RED holiday… dedicated to the equality of women, justice for all in the workplace, and the recognition of the vital role that women play in life and in society.

Don’t let the rightwing filth rob you of your rightful holiday…
