  The World War II – Вторая Мировая Война memorial to the fallen of the Soviet Union is in Сортавала – Sortavala on the northern shore of Ладожское озеро – Lake Ladoga. The inset Polish Cross with the real dates for the beginning of Phase II of the Great Civil War of European Christendom, 1914 - 1945, is from the Katyn War Cemetery – Polski Cmentarz Wojenny w Katyniu – Мемориальный Комплекс «Катынь».  

 

 

  König und Kaiser Friedrich Wilhelm III and Tsar-Emperor Alexander I – Александр I Павлович together in Memel in 1802  
  Better times for German - Russian relations, though so very often we seem to need to find a common enemy, or have enemies find us, like Napolean or the Turks, or now in the XXI century, Muslims and Jews and Homosexuals and Plutocrats. Here in a castle museum in Klaipeda in Lithuania, a print memorializing a meeting of brother sovereigns in European Christendom, König und Kaiser Friedrich Wilhelm III (3 August 1770; reigned from 16 November 1797 to 7 June 1840) and Tsar-Emperor Alexander I – Александр I Павлович (23 [O.S. 12] December 1777; reigned from 23 March 1801, from the date his father, Pavel, was murdered, to 1 December [O.S. 19 November] 1825, when he died or, according to another version, got tired of kinging and ducked into a monastery.) Alexander's younger brother and successor, Tsar-Emperor Nicholas I – Николай I Павлович (6 July [O.S. 25 June] 1796; reigned from 1 December 1825 to 2 March [O.S. 18 February] 1855) took as wife the first daughter of Kaiser Friedrich Wilhelm III, Prinzessin Charlotte von Preußen (1798–1860), who thereafter was restyled Императрица Александра Фёдоровна – Empress Alexandra Fyodorovna of Russia, thereafter mother of Emperor and Tsar-Liberator Alexander II. Indeed, nineteen-years-younger, little brother Nikolai was taking after older brother Alexander in this regard also. Alexander, who took for beloved bride German Luise Marie Auguste Prinzessin von Baden (* 1779 to 16 May [O.S. 4 May] 1826 †), restyled with marriage Императрица Елизавета Алексеевна – Empress Elizabeth Alexeievna of Russia. Two more unions piling on more proof of the absurdity which coupled the evil of internecine, fratricidal war between Germany-Austria and Russia-Ukraine. This meeting of Frederick William and Alexander in Klaipėda, when it was Memel of Prussia, on 10 June 1802 was under rather more auspicious circumstances for Frederick than a later visit to Memel in 1806, fleeing Napoleon's Grande Armée.

  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.

  No Победа – Victory for Christendom to be seen here  
 

AmericanismHollywoodism, Jewish–American cultural hegemony is alive and well in the Russia of

Yeltsin – Berezovsky – Chubias – Potanin – Sachs – Nemstov – Deripaska – Prokhorov – Alekbarov – Blavatnik – Abramov – Mikhelson – Kuzmichov – Lisin – Vekselberg – Fridman – Shvidler – Gusinsky – Khan – Khodorkovsky – Abramovich – Kogan . . .

(Nope, no pattern here.)

Even the minority of films now played in XXI century Russia which are not imported from Hollywood have nearly completely co-opted the Hollywood strategy of destroying Christian culture and civilizational integrity through the villainization of the Church and of Christians, with European-Heterosexual men being the very worst portrayed; promotion of the acceptance of homosexuality as normal and desireable; the sexualization of children; women as soldiers and the associated destruction of the instinct in men to protect women and children; and the rest of their demonaic and vile agenda.

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.

  Orthodox Cross and Communist Stars  
  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.  

 

 

   
  Главное Управление Лагерей — ГУЛАГ +  Православие  Orthodoxy  
 

The Orthodox Christian Cross afixed to the memorial for the Bolshevik-Communist-Jew- inspired/created Великая Отечественная Война – Great Patriotic War is all the more striking and ironic here, at the Спасо-Преображенский Соловецкий монастырь – Holy Transfiguration Solovetsky Monastery, as the monastery was closed, the monks martyred and the Island turned into one of the more important "labor" camps within the system the world has come to know as the

Главное Управление Лагерей — ГУЛАГ
Glavnoye Upravleniye Lagerey – Main Camp Administration — the GULAG

Estimates of the number of people murdered through the hundreds of camps of the Communist camp system rarely dip below the 2,000,000 figure, and some credible estimates reach to 10,000,000. (Obviously, the official estimates off of Soviet statistics can not be trusted.) What is more, the camp on the Solovetsky Islands — Соловки – Solovki, technically, Соловецкий лагерь особого назначения (СЛОН) – Solovetsky Special Purpose Camp (SLON) — was, to quote Александр Исаевич Солженицын – Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn, the very Mother Camp, the prototype for the whole system.

Of course little efforts like attaching an Orthodox Cross to a Soviet memorial, common as such are even in the second half of the second decade of the XXI century, must be understood in context. Russia is full of a very great many of European Christendom's very finest people. And the enterprise which is United European Christendom needs Russia. Still, it is disheartening in ways that are difficult to describe that, very much like with the Catholics in Western Europe and the Americas, some of the worst people in Russia are those one encounters in the Church. the ignorant and malevolent, the chauvinistic and nationalistic counterparts, so to speak, of the heterodox and homosexualists which polute the Holy Catholic Church.

Efforts to see some kind of contrived continuum of Orthodoxy–Communism–Orthodoxy, with a transmogrified view of history in which World War II becomes some kind of holy Orthodoxy struggle, undermine the value of Big O Orthodoxy's contribution to the Church and Christendom, past and future. And they are ridiculous.

It seems that the Liberals and the Neo-Conservatives of the United States of America do not, in the end, have a monopoly on Schizophrenia, psychopathology and the moronic.

Returning for a moment to matters related to the ГУЛАГ – GULAG,

 

 

 

  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.
