St Tikhon Zadonsky Monastery is the oldest Russian Orthodox monastery in the USA. St Tikhon Bellavin, who later became Patriarch of Moscow and all the Russias, founded it in 1905 as a monastery and orphanage when he was ruling bishop in the USA. It still exists today, but the orphanage no longer exists. However, a seminary opened on the grounds in 1938, which still operates. Every year, on the American Memorial Day weekend, there’s a monastery open house and pilgrimage that draws hundreds of believers from throughout the USA (but mostly from the Northeast, especially from NEPA).

Crimea IS Russia… full stop. It was never “Ukrainian”… it isn’t “Ukrainian”… nor is it ever going to be “Ukrainian”. Let anyone who thinks otherwise come and expel us… and no one has the power to do so, INCLUDING the EXCEPTIONAL and INDISPENSABLE USA! If the USA was so INDISPENSABLE, where was it in 988? If it was so EXCEPTIONAL, why is it the Prison House of All the Nations and the leader in violent gun deaths by police?
I rest my case…
