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…

2 June 2016. Saints Aren’t Infallible… They CAN be Wrong

all saints of n america

I wrote this on FB:

However, although he was a saint, St Ioann Maksimovich wasn’t a good bishop or theologian. He was, indeed, holy. He was, indeed, a Fool-in-Christ (thus, his title of “Blessed”, instead of the more-common “Righteous”). However, he wasn’t an administrator (his successor Antony Medvedev had to clear away his mess) or was he an academic theologian. He was, perhaps, a great pastor and a great mystic, but he wasn’t a Defender of the Faith as was Antony Bartoshevich or a hardheaded diocesan leader like Bishop Kip in NEPA. In short, St John isn’t a good source for defined Church dogma… I’d look to people like A I Osipov for that. Again, apples aren’t oranges… sainthood isn’t scholarship or leadership… we should remember that.

I wish that the konvertsy like Holland would stop with the proof-texting nonsense. We aren’t “Evangelicals”… we shouldn’t be aping their Antichristian ways. The Church defines its dogma by its shared consensus… not on this-or-that isolated quote from this-or-that saint or theologian. If a saint said something, it either agrees with the agreed consensus or it doesn’t… if it’s the latter, it’s simply wrongheaded, and that’s that. We don’t believe that saints are infallible. NO ONE IS INFALLIBLE. Therefore, it’s entirely possible for a saint to be wrong on a particular point without impairing their sainthood one bit. For instance, St Mark of Ephesus had tinges of Latin Purgatory in his writing… but since he was a saint in other ways, we overlook this error. In like manner, we overlook St John’s errors in re the tollhouse fantasy. He was simply mistaken on that. Note well that the konvertsy brats can’t seem to get that. It tells you much about them and their stance doesn’t it? Keep alert… the times aren’t good…

10 April 2015. A Thought from St Ioann Maksimovich the Wonderworker

00 St John Maksimovich. 10.04.15

The Khatyn Massacre happened in Belarus. However, the main participants on the Nazi side were Galician Uniate nationalist collaborators. They haven’t changed their spots. Yesterday, the Galician Uniate nationalists murdered for the Nazis… today, they murder for the Anglo American neoliberals (“conservatives”). Evil hasn’t changed. It’s still our duty to oppose it wherever and whenever it appears. Reflect on that this Holy Friday…
