  • Poche,

    I'm not going to partake in this drumbeat to WW3 which the Western powers are currently doing.

    Russia seems to want peace. Again and again.

    If they wanted war, it would be easy for them to invade and conquer all of Ukraine in 2 or 3 days with air, land, and sea power.

    The idea that Russia is invading, has tanks, troops, etc. in Ukraine is ludicrous. It doesn't even make sense. Where are the satellite images?

    Putin brokered a peace deal (again!) in Ukraine because he wants peace. Where was Obama (the Nobel Peace Prize winner) with a peace deal? Nowhere to be found. Putin also helped avert WW3 last year when he brokered a peace deal in Syria.

    Oh, but the USA is going to supply Ukraine with lethal weapons to use in the war. They also are talking about ground troops. And they're bolstering NATO big-time. They can't wait for WW3.

    We Catholics should NOT buy into this nonsense.

  • The Russians are looking after their own, something so-called Christian leaders have ceased doing.

    “The Vatican, silent about Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine, has refused to take a position,” he continued.


    Stop right there!  It's not Russia's military aggression against Ukraine.  It's the other way around.  It's studied aggression against an emerging Christian nation by a bunch of damned jews in the West.  They feel threatened, and well they should.

  • In Thirst For War, Sen. Inhofe Releases Fake Photos Of Russian Troops In Ukraine
    excerpts:
    Quote
    In his best attempt to impersonate war crazed Senator John McCain, Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma released photographic proof of Russian solders in Ukraine in order to push forward his bill to provide U.S. arms to Ukraine. Or so he thought…

    There’s just one slight problem here. Some of the photos are totally fake, and are actually from Russia’s 2008 conflict with Georgia.

    Oops.  
    No worries though, Senator. Hardly anyone is paying attention.

  • The head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, has issued a letter to his priests on war.

    “The defense of the homeland is the right and duty of every conscious and responsible citizen,” he said. “But determining the appropriateness of mobilization, declaring it, and providing the mobilized with all the necessary to defend the homeland is a competence of the government.”

    Priests should not undertake “the functions of the State or its defense departments in the organization and conducting the defense,” he continued. “Instead, we spiritually support mobilized, their families and express gratitude of all the people of God to our fellow citizens who are willing to [sacrifice] their lives for their friends, according to the commandment of Christ.”

    Calling upon priests to pray, fast, and undertake works of mercy, the prelate said that “pastors have to show patience in hearing the confessions of the combatants, encouraging and comforting soldiers and all the victims of war, pointing to the mercy of God as the source of healing physical and mental wounds and encouraging the observance of the moral rules also in the midst of the horrors of war.”

    The major archbishop also discussed just war and the vocation of the soldier.

    “The vocation of the warrior does not contradict the Christian vocation,” he said. “Moreover, you can be a warrior and holy!”

    “The war in which Ukraine is involved should be led for life and not for death: we take part in it not out of hatred for the enemies, but to defend life and our native land from an aggressor devoid of moral principles,” he added.

    “Keep in mind that of that victory on the battlefield ahead is the moral and spiritual victory over the enemy, which is based on the realization of the noble works – the defense of peace before the aggressor, the humane treatment of prisoners and wounded, the inadmissibility of any violence against civilians,” he continued. “Even the most difficult circumstances of war should be the opportunity to show moral heroism and humanity, not to provoke the release of the blind instincts of revenge and hatred.”

    My concern is not what the politicl map would look like. The main concern that I have with this is what will happen to the Catholic Church and its freedom to operate. What is happening with the Catholic people and the Church in the disputed areas? What is happening in Crimea where the religious sisters have been told they have to leave? The current eastern rite Catholic metropolitan of Kiev spent 10 yuears in a Soviet prison because of his "illegal" affiliation as a Catholic Eastern rite priest. I have at home in my posession the samizdat which describe how the Eastern rite Catholics were treated up until very recently. To be an Eastern Rite Catholic was a crime in the Soviet Union. Tis is my primary concern, freedom for our Catholic brothers wherever they are.
