8 July 2017. A Word on the Myrrh-Streaming Icon of St Ioann Maksimovich in the American-Occupied DNR

________________________

Victor Potapov is circulating a news item about an icon of St Ioann Maksimovich streaming myrrh in the DNR. Note well that the CIA pig Potapov didn’t mention that the event took place in the American-occupied fascist part of the DNR. Myrrh-streaming is usually a sign of comfort in times of trouble. Note well that the CIA quisling Potapov (a real “Chekist in a riassa” if there ever was such) doesn’t mention that the fascist Uniate “Ukraine” is falling apart as we speak, with great suffering for ordinary people. This myrrh-streaming is divine proof that the “Ukraine” isn’t long for this world and that God is comforting His people to steady them for the coming trials as the American-imposed Uniate pseudo-state collapses. Potapov was a high-ranking CIA operative with a “red” official US passport (that gave him immunity from ordinary passport control). One must never forget this. Potapov took Langley’s money to undermine his ancestral homeland. Radio Liberty had the purpose (and still does) of undermining the USSR/Russia. What can you say of a priest who willingly aided such an enterprise?

This event doesn’t bode well for the “Ukraine” in the near term. The only reason that the fascist Uniate junta staggers on is that the USA props it up. The suffering in that region is intense at present… it’ll get worse as order and state control collapse. The icon streams myrrh to remind people that God is still with them in their distress and grief. Note well that none of the konvertsy jerks noticed any of this. If you needed proof that they’re idiots, with no redeeming qualities whatsoever, this is that. They support American politicians that back the murder of our Orthodox kids in the Donbass… they’re “pro-life”, after all…

18 April 2017. The Imperial Family… What They Were, What They Weren’t

____________________________________

The Imperial family aren’t “Martyrs” in the Church’s eyes… they didn’t suffer for the Faith. They’re “Passionbearers”… those who bore their suffering and deaths in a Christian manner. This isn’t a minor distinction. It means that the hoorah that you hear from certain ROCOR elements is pure BS. The Church doesn’t endorse monarchy… it never did… it doesn’t… it won’t. Individuals within the Church did… but that doesn’t mean that the Church “as Church” endorses and blesses monarchy. It’s just one of the many forms of human government out there. The Church DOES bless the Christian forbearance shown by the Romanov family. It says “amen” to that. However, that doesn’t mean that it approves of the system that they headed. If the Church called them “Royal Martyrs”, it’d give monarchy a boost, but the Church chose not to call them that. The ROCOR had to adjust its terminology at the Reconciliation… the Centre made it clear that “Royal Martyr” was unacceptable (it also made it clear that the ROCOR couldn’t canonise non-Orthodox just because the Reds killed them).

In this year of the centenary of the October Revolution, we’re going to hear much rubbish from the usual sources. I’d remind you that many of them had Nazi collaborators in their families… that doesn’t bother them. Puts a far different face on their rants, doesn’t it? Let’s honour the Romanov family’s faith and let’s fight the loudmouth anti-communists. After all, they gave succour and support to Hitler… what more need I say?

19 March 2017. Patriarch Kirill: “Anyone Can Become a Saint!”

____________________________________

I chose the illustration of the blacksmith for a reason. I find that many middle-class people (properly speaking, not working-class people with pretensions) believe that only they can achieve holiness. Interestingly enough, most saints were either aristocrats or peasants, with very few from the middle-class… the merchants and “professionals” were all-too-often fixated on money and position. Have a care with middle-class people… too many obsess on money and position. However, pray for them, as they have the most obstacles in the spiritual life. The rich and titled know that money and position aren’t what they’re cracked up to be and the working-class knows that they’re not going to get money and position. However, the middle-class is tempted the most by such… they’re almost hag-ridden by it in most cases. They’re the most hobbled in the spiritual life… so, don’t forget to pray for them, they need it most of all.

8 March 2017. Finding of the Relics of St Matrona the Blessed of Moscow

____________________________________

The wonder-working power of Matrona of Moscow was directly due to her suffering, to the endurance of her anguish as she bore her salvific and life-giving cross. May the Lord help us all; call upon the Holy Righteous Matrona, ask for her aid in solving your life’s problems. At the same time, ask her to fill your heart and your mind with the power of her example, with the understanding of what it means for you to carry the cross that God imposes on you.

Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias

On 8 March 1998, Patriarch Aleksei Ridiger of Moscow and all the Russias authorised the uncovering of the relics of St Matrona Nikonova the Blessed of Moscow. This is the second holy day for this saint (the other is on 2 May, the date of her death). Today, her relics are in the Pokrovsky Stavropegic Convent in Moscow… one can venerate them every day from 07.00 until 20.00… on Sunday, the relics open for veneration at 06.00. Thousands of people daily come to Matrona to venerate her relics. Easily, she’s one of the most “popular” saints in Moscow. The fact that International Women’s Day and this holy day of St Matrona coincide is a coincidence, but a happy one.
