  Свято-Успенский Псково-Печерский Монастырь – Holy Dormition Pskov Monastery of the Caves  
  Свято-Успенский Псково-Печерский Монастырь – Holy Dormition Pskov Monastery of the Caves  
     
 

The official site of the monastery (www.pskovo-pechersky-monastery.ru/eng) includes the following description:

The Holy Dormition Pskovo-Pechersky (Pskov-Caves) monastery is located on the historically Russian land, 50 kilometers to the west of the city of Pskov, near the very border of Estonia and 340 kilometers from St. Petersburg.

The date of the monastery's foundation is considered to be August, 15/28,1473. It was on that day that the monastery's founder, St. Jonah (Shesnik) consecrated the church of the Dormition of the Most Holy Mother of God — a church which was built into the hillside. But the monastic life had actually begun there much earlier, when a few hermits, seeking solitude, came to live in the caves. The holy relics of one of them, St. Mark the desert-dweller, still rest in the caves and many people come to venerate them. The monastery's chronicle relates that "the Most Pure Virgin herself chose this site in the valley of the Kamenets spring, blessed it, exalted it through her chosen people and has been protecting it ever since. Five centuries have passed, and the monastery has seen both glory and tragedy, but never have the holy lampadas gone out, nor prayer ceased in this blessed place.

...

In the 16th and 17th centuries the monastery suffered from numerous attacks by the "Latins" — Polish and Lithuanian troops, as well as by the Swedish and German soldiers. The most serious attack was lead by the Polish King Stephan Batory in the autumn of 1581.

...

In 1920 the town of Pechory, in accordance with the Tartu Agreement, was given to Estonia, and the monastery found itself outside Russia. This new situation did not affect the church services in the monastery — they never ceased; however, the new authorities caused a lot of problems and distress to the brethren.

Which fits nicely with the preferred narrative of Russian holiness interrupted by unholy foreign intervention, although this narrative is almost devoid of integrity, and indeed it is nearly the mirror opposite of the truth. In fact it was the circumstance that Pechory and the Pskov Monastery of the Caves were assigned by treaty to Estonian government during the period of 1920 through 1944 that saved the monastery from the murderous rampages en masse of the Bolsheviks and their ugly godless and anti-Christian experiments, to which the Russians succumbed, but which had to be imposed by the Soviets militarily elsewhere in Europe.

... Well ... the buildings are beautiful.

Well, there is a certain symmetry ... in deception and evil, 1917 to 1920 and 1941 to 1945. "Heroes of the Revolution and the people's struggle for their homeland gave the most precious - life."

Let him among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her

Let him among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her. Forgiveness - Прощение

   

 

 

Russia and the Russian Orthodox Church do stand in a special position as regards the dialogues among the Oriental Orthodox, the Orthodox and the Catholics and as regards the process of Christian and ecclesiological re-unification, and this not only because in Realpolitik they are actually and potentially a whole lot more numerous than the Greeks. So too within European Christendom, the Russians are special, and they have a special and in important senses leadership role to play.

To many Descendants of European Christendom other than Russians the forgoing may seems strange. Indeed to play a holy role the Russians will need to rethink and change much within themselves, not least the mass fashion in recent decades to try to view the atheist Communist period as somehow a continuation of and in continuity with — rather than an abominable interruption from — Russia's holy role within European Christendom and Christendom universal. Embracing evil in order to manufacture martyrs is not worthy of the least among Christian societies. Lapsed- or atheist- Jews may have started ... well, clearly did start and lead Bolshevism. Equally clear is that they could not have and did not do it alone. As difficult as it may be to acknowledge this about one's grandfathers and fathers, how can there be reconciliation, much less leadership, without truth?

 

 

 

 

   
  reads 1941 but truth would be 1939 if not 1937  
 

If one is actually speaking of the Second World War, the beginning of that war may quite convincingly be dated to 17 de julio de 1936 and the start of the Spanish Civil War, in which Communist ideology and Soviet military assistance figured so prominently. Another possible dating would be to July of 1937 and the commencement of the full-scale hostilities of the Second Sino-Japanese War (7 July 1937 – 9 September 1945), in which hostilities the Soviet Union also participated and from 1937 (Советские Добровольцы в Китае). With perhaps 2.7 military deaths on all sides and as many as 22 million Chinese civilians killed, this war, from a world perspective, is hardly the minor footnote that it may seem to most Descendants of European Christendom. At all events the Second World War - Вторая Мировая Война did not begin for the Soviet Union — for Russia, the Ukraine, or Belarus — in 1941, though countless thousands of major monuments throughout Russia, the Ukraine and Belarus, including this large one right next to the Lavra in Russia's spiritual capital of Sergiev Posad, contain this lie written in stone and in steel. For the Soviet Union the European War began in 1939, and the Soviet forces began it. In this massive Soviet war of aggression, the Red Army, the military forces of the Soviet Union, attacked (that is, started murdering people in):

  • Poland on 17 September 1939;
  • Finland on 30 November 1939 (the Winter War - Talvisota - Vinterkriget - Зимняя Война of 30 November 1939 to
    13 March 1940, in which tiny Finland cleaned the giant Soviet Union's clock);
  • Estonia and Latvia and Lithuania between 14 and 16 June 1940 (Estonia under the command of Andrei Zhdanov, lovely).
    Within a few days there were 500,000 Red Army troops in these three countries; and
  • Moldova (Bessarabia and northern Bukovina) on 28 June 1940.

The circumstance can be left to another day and webpage for exploration that, when Nazi Germany commenced their invasion of the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941 in their Operation Barbarossa - Fall Barbarossa of unprecedented scale, Germany progress east was so swift because Red Army forces were arrayed not to optimize effective defence from invasion but rather for their own invasion in the other direction. Part of any such discussion would also have to include an examination of the hypocrisy of the American Presidents Wilson and Roosevelt and Über Alles the hypocrisy and self-dealing of Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill and his most deliberate schemes to convert a brief local European war into the World War, his second, which left 50 to 80 million dead, the ascendancy of world Communism with tens of millions more dead, and the extinction-level-event threat which was the Cold War.

The forgoing sentences may seem to the reader at first blush to be out of place on a website dedicated to the re-unification of the Orthodox-Catholic Church, as to the re-establishment of civilizational integrity within Christendom, beginning with European Christendom. Those who reflect more thoroughly on the poisonous role of nationalism/chauvinism both as a heresy within the Church — sometimes labelled Ethnophelitism — as also in the process achieving meaningful civilizational integrity governed and restrained by subsidiarity. Less than two months forward from this 22 March 2015 writing, the Russians will be celebrating a 70th anniversary of the 7/8 May 1945 V-E Day, when those for whom it is personally expedient will attempt, and doubtless with a large measure of success, to use this central identity-forming event to buttress and rejuvenate an enormously exaggerated and artificial sense of separateness — separateness from their genetic and spiritual kin in the rest of European Christendom — or better yet actual siege mentality, within the minds of Homo Sovieticus (plural Homo Sovietica?). Orthodox Christian Russians and Orthodox Christian Russia deserve better.

  What percentage of the monks of the Russian Orthodox Church completely conflate ignorant Russian chauvinistic nationalism with orthodox Christianity?  
  True, the contemporary diseases of masses of Catholic clerics — homosexualism and homosexuality — are even worse.  
  This circumstance does not make nationalism wise or holy. But perhaps more than unholy, nationalism is simply unworthy.  
  It is absurd.  

 

 

 

  70 Лет Победы  
  70 Лет Победы! – 70 Years of Victory! Maybe if we can make our own people continue to derive their self-identities from this war — seventy years on — they will forget both that our war would not have happened but for our embrace of Bolshevism and that they are only paid 250€ (15,000 rubles) per month in 2015! In our new society the chief beneficiaries, those consuming the lion's share of the spoils, are not Russia's productive people (or even their managers), but rather persons in political and police force positions which empower them to prevent productivity.

Trying to reconcile the irreconcilable, to find continuity where repentance and permanent break should be,
countless thousands of monuments to this monster continue to soil the scenery of Russia in 2015, often in
the central-most town squares, as with this one in Lipetsk.
Пытаясь примирить непримиримое, найти преемственность, где покаяние и постоянное перерыв должен быть,
многие тысячи памятников этого монстра продолжать почвы пейзажами России в 2015 году, часто в
Центрально-большинства городских площадях, так как это один в Липецке.

  In New York sure, but here we find А. Д. Сахаров – A.D. Sakharov (1921-1989) honored next to the main building of Russia's first university. Don't you see? Atheist Jews are not the Bolshevik vanguard. Oh no. They are the heroic dissidents against Communism. We must be grateful to them for liberating us all.
