______________________________

The above images are from earlier this year, before the Uniate fascist aggression began in Novorossiya. What I’m finding out is horrid in the extreme… the UGKTs is trying to take over the Ruthenian Catholic Church, claiming that it’s really “Ukrainian”… that’s on top of it supporting the murders of the junta forces without reservation. Not a single voice in the UGKTs cries out in protest… not a single voice in the UGKTs speaks up for humanity and decency. NOT ONE. Besides that, the Ruthenian Catholic (“Byzantine Catholic”) hierarchy in the USA is silent about the Galician repressions in Podkarpatskaya Rus, undercutting its own people in their homeland and helping the Galician dogs savage their Rusin compatriots!

It’s bad enough what the Uniate fascists are doing in Novorossiya… what they’re doing in Podkarpatskaya is even worse, as they’re putting the sword to fellow Uniates (but who happen not to be under the Nazi-loving pro-junta S Yu Shevchuk). It’s bad enough what’s happening in Novorossiya… what’s happening in Podkarpatskaya is even worse. Don’t take it out on the RCs down the street… they don’t know what the Roman Curia is up to, and they wouldn’t stand for it if they did. Most “Ukrainian Catholics” and “Ukrainian Orthodox” are only repeating the lies told them by their bishops and clergy. However, we shouldn’t have anything to do officially with these groups… their support for an anti-Christian theomachistic bloodbath against those who stand up against fascism is obscene, noxious, and against everything that’s decent and holy.

May Novorossiya be whole again… may Podkarpatskaya be whole again… may God curse the UGKTs for its blessing of aggression, repression, and falsehood. I cross myself and bow as I say this… I’m a Christian… I can only speak what’s in my heart and soul…

26 November 2012. Our Great Russian Motherland. Zakarpatiya… the Westernmost March of the Russian Orthodox Civilisational Bloc

______________________________

Zakarpatiya, or Carpatho-Russia, is the westernmost extreme of the territory of the Russian Orthodox Civilisational Bloc, it’s also one of the Western borderposts of the Orthosphere. It’s been sanctified by the podvigs of Ss Aleksei Kabalyuk and Maksim Sandovich. It was one of the lands torn away by the godless Unia. However, many of the people kept the flame alive, and many of them returned to the Church whenever they could. This is one of the most special places in the Orthosphere, as it’s been difficult to maintain the True Faith here… the Uniates did their best to strangle it, but they failed.

The people from here form the backbone of the Russian Orthodox community here in the USA and Canada. If it weren’t for them, we wouldn’t really have a Church here, as they were the “pioneer” emigrants to these shores from the Orthosphere. They’re still the silent foundation of the Church here… if you think otherwise, you simply don’t know what you’re talking about.

Thank you…

20 August 2011. The Faces of the Church… It’s Rumoured that You Can Find Them in Pennsylvania, Too…

Relics and icon of St Maksim Sandovich… many of the po-nashemu people in the Church are blood-kin to those repressed by the Hapsburgs and interwar Poles. The Uniates were the willing stooges and hangmen of their Catholic overlords (just as they were eager to do the bidding of the CIA in the 90s)… you should never forget that. The Uniates refuse to honour St Maksim Sandovich, St Aleksei Kabalyuk, and the Martyr Gavriil Kostelnik (killed by a Uniate fanatic). That’s the reality behind their smiles…

A letter written in 1914 from St John Maksimovich of San Francisco (then, a layman) to St Maksim Sandovich (who was to be murdered by the Hapsburg authorities later that year).

Correction 22.08.11:

The letter from St John was written to St Maksim’s son whilst he was in seminary… not to St Maksim.

Noted and posted… this came from one of my reliable sources…

Here’s the REAL Church… sometimes sublime, sometimes hutsky-klutsky, sometimes inspired, sometimes fumbling… but always the Church, and always the Holy Place. NEVER EVER forget that when you hear this-or-that about the latest escapade from the usual cast of suspects. God likes the Church as it is… He founded it , after all! Light a candle, say a prayer, confess, commune, and do whatever good that you can do… is that all? It’s ENOUGH… if it was good enough for baba n’ dede, it’s good enough for me!
