Russia, and the ironic attacks from the left.
#1
Given the seeming likelihood of Bernie as the Dem. candidate, I can't help but marvel at how ironic the whole thing appears.
The left went after Trump for being civil with Russia.
Now the new Dem candidate is a socialist, with ideas that appear to come straight from the Bolsheviks.
It's obvious what the left hates: Russia's turn towards Christendom.
Now, I realize that Russia isn't a "Catholic country", but, it would seem to me, that it may very well be on the path to achieving that end. Just thought it would be something interesting to discuss.

Edit. Typo.

It depends how liberal Rome goes and how liberal Constantinople remains but they could verily enter through an Eastern Rite.

Many of us still pray for the conversion of Russia in the rosary. Those prayers have to have had some effect.

Russia is more "Catholic" than the Vatican right now.

That's a lil' misleading. The Left was extremely conciliatory to the Kremlin, even after the Kremlin's putative turn to "Christianity." Remember the New START? Remember Obama grabbing Medvedev's thigh and telling Medvedev he would help Russia in Obama's second term, by acting in a way that would lose Obama reelection were it known by the public? Remember how we wouldn't sell the Ukes arms under Obama, but Trump is doing so, and he plans to beef up our presence in Poland after Obama cut it down? Remember how Obama laughed at Romney and McCain's concerns about Putin?

Most important: Remember how Hilary's campaign, through employee/ex-spy Steel, paid the Russians for intel on Trump?

[Now a minor criticism of Trump is coming, but I am voting for him]

The "Trump's a Russian asset" meme was played, and the whole Left flipped, because Trump KEPT saying nice crap about dictators; he didn't even condemn Hitler when given the opportunity. The Left decided their cynical political realignment on Russia was how they'd take Trump down - it is that cynical. Putin was already going after LGBTQIA identifiers before the Lefty flip-flop happened. Putin's attitudes on SSA are not the cause of the Lefty flip-flop.



As for Russia being a redeemed Christian county, do Christian countries have super high abortion rates - and legal abortion? (Russia has the same regime on abortion as does France, but Russia has a higher abortion rate). And do they have super high murder rates? Do they have 3% church attendance? Do they invade Christian countries with 4 times their Church attendance, as the Russian army did with Ukraine? Do Christians, such as Putin the Great, praise Stalin? The nexus between the infiltrators of the Russian kept church, and the government, come from the Soviet period. So too do the two spies who run the state and the church (but I repeat myself), come from the Soviet-era.

Unfortunately I fear there is some truth in that.

Amen!

Quote:One of the nations with the highest rates of abortion is Russia. According to UN reports, Russia’s abortion rate is 37.4. In other words, for every 1,000 women between 15 to 44, 37.4 had an abortion.

OK, clearly my reflections on this aren’t exactly the stuff of scholarship.
Consider my original post mostly false.
Not deliberately of course.
Just wrong.

Yup,



I wear my Brown Scapular and pray for Russia (Incl. the west which very much needs it), I see many good things occurring in Russia in regards to their Christendom, my only concern is China, because China is still communist. Fatima said that Russia would be converted, but it will be late and like the King of France we will regret it (as communism spread to multiple countries and has permeated and gained such ground even in our own Countries).

God Bless You

"For you I descended from heaven to earth; for you I allowed myself to be nailed to the cross; for you I let my Sacred Heart be pierced with a lance, thus opening wide the source of mercy for you. Come, then, with trust to draw graces from this fountain. I never reject a contrite heart." (Diary, 1485)

"Remember My Passion, and if you do not believe My words, at least believe My wounds." (Diary, 379)

"It is in My Passion that you must seek light and strength." (Diary, 654)
