Revival of Orthodoxy in Russia...



What happens when technology and big money work together for God's Glory? Just watch this great presentation of Moscow Exhibition Rebirth of Orthodoxy!

I think that it is especially important to view the images of the persecution that the Orthodox Church of Russia endured during Communism that are towards the middle of this video. I don't think that we can comprehend how horrific that time was for Christianity without seeing footage like that.

So beautiful. So heart-breakingly, light-dawningly beautiful.

Aweful indeed to see the heart-breaking destructiveness of that terrible regime; beautiful and inspiring to see such reverence and devotion now. To God be the glory. Thankyou so much for sharing this.

The link to the documentary didn't work, I'll try and Google it elsewhere. But, I read a historical fiction novel a while back called "The Winter Garden", by Kristen Hannah; part of the story is on the Siege of Leningrad. I cried through the whole chapter. It is not a part of history that was covered in high school. I went to church and asked my friend Maria who is from St. Petersburg, and she said it was true. It is so heart wrenching to think of the atrocities that even in current times our Orthodox Christian families are going through in the Middle East.
