The Universal Exaltation of the Precious and Life-giving Cross.

The Scripture Readings

John 12:28-36 Matins Gospel (The Universal Exaltation)
1 Corinthians 1:18-24 The Universal Exaltation
John 19:6-11, 13-20, 25-28, 30-35 The Universal Exaltation

“O Lord, save Thy people and bless Thine inheritance.

Grant victory unto Orthodox Christians over their adversaries, and by the virtue of Thy Cross, preserve Thy habitation.”

The Taking Down from the Cross

The Cross and the Resurrection


For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written:“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”

Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

Alas, the Patriarchate of Moscow still fumble in the schizophrenic delusion that it’s possible to venerate both those who embraced the Cross (all the new Martyrs and Confessors of the Rus’) and those who refused their Cross and bowed to the beast (painted red for the occasion).

That’s the reason why the Rus’ is still stuck in the quagmire which entraps all the madmen who thinks it’s possible to follow Christ a little and the world a little more. In that quagmire we will stay, if these are all the fruits of repentance we are able to produce.

You can pray for Metropolitan Sergius, but nothing more. There’s nothing to boast of in his shameful submission to the butchers of Christ’s flock, yet Patriarch Kyrill and many of our hierarchs evidently think that without him the gates of hell would have prevailed against the Church.

Therefore, my worst fears are bitterly confirmed: actually, our hierarchies do really believe they know better than the Lord.

He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.




“And unto the angel of the Russian Church write: ‘I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast My name, and hast not denied My faith, even in those days wherein Tikhon was My faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth’”

The good Paul Smirnov has forgotten to report the remaining verses that the Lord addressed to the Church in Pergamos, that he has transposed to the Church in the Rus’ lands.

But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of the beast, who taught Sergius to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to despise the blood of the martyrs, and to slander My confessors.

So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Sergianites, which thing I hate.

Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

I humbly exhorts the Rus’ hierarchies to come to their senses, lest the Lord removes their lampstand and appoints their lot with the hypocrites.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, and say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

This list of prophecies about the Revolution of a century ago and the fate of the Rus’ (and the world, by consequence) is obviously incomplete; there are too many of them. Among many others, it’s missing one of the most striking because of its timing and the minute details. It’s the prophecy uttered by the holy man Gregory Novy (called Rasputin) a few days before his bestial murder:

“I feel that I shall leave life before January 1st. I wish to make known to the Russian people, to Papa (the Tsar), to the Russian Mother (the Tsarina) and to the Children what they must understand. If I am killed by common assassins, and especially by my brothers the Russian peasants, you, the Tsar of Russia, will have nothing to fear for your children, they will reign for hundreds of years. But if I am murdered by boyars, nobles, and if they shed my blood, their hands will remain soiled with my blood for twenty-five years and they will leave Russia. Brothers will kill brothers, and they will kill each other and hate each other, and for twenty-five years there will be no peace in the country. The Tsar of the land of Russia, if you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, you must know this: if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then none of your children will remain alive for more than two years. And if they do, they will beg for death as they will see the defeat of Russia, see the Antichrist coming, plague, poverty, destroyed churches, and desecrated sanctuaries where everyone is dead. The Russian Tsar, you will be killed by the Russian people and the people will be cursed and will serve as the devil’s weapon killing each other everywhere. Three times for 25 years they will destroy the Russian people and the orthodox faith and the Russian land will die. I shall be killed. I am no longer among the living. Pray, pray, be strong, and think of your blessed family.”

Please note that the first of the New Martyrs was not killed by the Bolsheviks. That’s the reason why the fight of the White Army was not blessed by the Lord and they were defeated by the Red beast: they had their root in the perjury and betrayal of the Tsar and his inprisonment, in those pathetic apostates thinking that they could substitute the Anointed. They were the ones who removed the Christian Emperor, not the Bolsheviks, opening the gates which kept all the Hell’s powers from swarming the earth.

White and Red were two faces of the same coin, the thesis and the antithesis of the devil!

The Rus’ will not be delivered until the first of the New Martyrs will not be glorified and that filthy mummy will not be finally removed from the sacred heart of Rus’ power and buried. Then everything will be clear and the land will be cleansed even from the abominable collective infants’ sacrifice to Baal (calling it abortion does not change what it is), the Lord will finally see a complete repentance and restore the Christian Emperor.

All of this will not happen under a Patriarch who glorifies those who bowed to the beast instead of accepting their cross and allows the publishing of this so-called catechism, nor while still endures the mocking of the saints’ relics, sent by apostate or mortally negligent priests and hierarchs to imaginary trips aboard imaginary space stations orbiting an imaginary ball conceived by imaginary scientists worshipped by imaginative priests.

If the Rus’ will not produce fruits of true repentance, the Christian Empire will not be restored and, in my poor understanding, this world will not last another century.

Four years more of conservative social-demonocratic misery for German people, who possibly will get to their next electoral theatre as a minority in their own land, which is the fate waiting every European nation under the demonocratic rule headquartered in Brussels, duly executed by the possessed local demonocratic representatives.

A White Flag in Front of the Aggression of Secularism

—Fr. Raphael, can you point to some concrete features or characteristics of modernism—its distinctive features, so to speak?

—You can point to a whole number of such features. It’s not necessarily that the article or lecture of some modernist will present all the points, but even one is enough to understand that we are dealing with reformism. You don’t have to change all the numbers in a complex formula: It’s enough to change one number, and the whole formula won’t work; one deep wound on a man’s body is enough for blood to flow. Therefore, the errors of modernists enumerated can be contained in any composition, or even be limited to one.[2]

1. Modernists deny the transmission of Adam’s sin to his descendants.

2. They deny the atonement or distort its meaning.

3. They are skeptical towards miracles described in the Bible and in the lives of the saints.

4. They deny the transubstantiation of the Holy Gifts celebrated in the Liturgy.

5. They are hostile to the word “mysticism,” consciously confusing Orthodox mysticism with false mysticism.

6. They strive for language reform—replacing the ancient liturgical language for the modern language, which is less responsive to the dynamics of prayer.

7. They consider the love of God in isolation from the justice of God, thus drawing Divine love into the justification of moral permissiveness.

8. They distort the concept of the Church, namely the dogma of “I believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.” They believe that people can be saved in other religious confessions, or even in the absence of any religious faith. They ignore the action of the Holy Spirit Who abides in the Church, and deny the holiness of the Church and the purity of its teachings. They substitute the conciliar consciousness of the Church for their own conjectures and speculations.

9. They try to rationalize theology and worship, generally coldly relating to the services, considering them a secondary matter for salvation.

10. They relate to Holy Tradition, customs, and continuity nihilistically.

11. According to modernists, classical, orthodox theology is nothing more than “spiritual stagnation and boredom.”

12. To hide their anti-Orthodox orientation, modernists affirm in one place that which they deny in another; they deny that which they themselves earlier proved. In this regard, if a modernist is denounced for heretical thoughts, then he refers to another place in his statements and says that his views should be considered not in isolation, but as a whole; but what this whole means is unclear. Modernists resort to such a technique in order to create confusion in the minds of the Orthodox.

13. Many modernists try to rehabilitate the teachings of Origen and almost make him out to be a victim of delusion on the part of Orthodox apologists—the fathers of the Ecumenical Councils. For modernists, Origen is an uncanonized saint.

14. They teach that universalism is pre-determined by God, that is, inevitable. They not only repeat variations of the apokatastasis of Origen, but in some cases go much further. If for Origen the sinner must go through purifying suffering on earth, then some modernists believe it’s enough for a sinner to desire salvation and he will be saved.

15. Modernists downplay the importance of both the angelic and demonic powers in the history of the world and the moral life of every man. They are inclined to write off demonic temptation as emotional effects and mental disorders.

16. Modernists try to discredit Church authorities and religious books.

17. They veer between evolutionary and creationist teachings about the creation of the world and man, and advocate a compromise hypothesis.

18. Modernists use forgery in their critical attacks on Orthodox teaching: Their assumptions are displayed as facts, and their shaky foundations as hard evidence.

19. By assembling quotes and manipulating fragments plucked from Patristic writings, they ascribe to the holy fathers those opinions that suit them, regardless of Church exegesis and the rules of hermeneutics.

20. Modernists, expressing their thoughts, try not to fully reveal them, so as not to betray their anti-Orthodox nature. Therefore, modernists feel the fragmentation and incompleteness of conceptual views.

21. Modernists’ deficiency of faith is disguised as broadmindedness. They speculate with the words “science,” “education,” and “progress.”

[Indeed, they have an unbreakable faith in the idol they call “science”. They question everything, from the Scripture to the words of our Lord to the holy tradition of the Fathers in the Church, but every idiocy uttered by the scientist idol through its pathetic oracles is taken by them at once as sacred dogma. All of them believe firmly to live upon a mad ball, blessed by democratic progress sculpted in unfailing love for the unrepentant, wandering aimlessly in a demential universe. They are the fullest fulfilment of the prophecy of St. Anthony the Great! – ndM]

22. Modernism not only indulges human passions and worldly tastes, but sometimes even comes to a cynical attitude toward sacred objects. They speak about metaphysical problems with jokes and grins that destroy the sense of awe towards faith. Divinity is a fire, to which it is impossible to draw near without repentance and awe. Some theologians act as if they want to borrow the glory of Mullah Nasreddin.[3]

—What is it that propels a Church person to become a modernist?

—What propels him is that which the Gospel warns us about: pride of the mind, lust of the flesh, and the temptations of the world, with its semi-pagan spirit and the cult of pleasure. It’s the desire to combine the incompatible: holiness and sin, love for Christ with the lust of the world, the Church with the Tower of Babel, Divine revelation with limited concepts and ideas stricken with pride, under the influence of the passions and the egotism of human reason. It is the desire not to submit to revelation, but for revelation to submit to you; it is an attitude towards Tradition as to raw material from which you can sculpt any form and which you can interpret in conformance with the voice of your own passions and desires. In the words of the secular poet: “The white rose with the black toad I wanted to marry in the land.” The thrust of modernists’ thinking is directed towards the earth and is subject to history. For them, religion is not a revelation of eternity in time and a path towards it, but one of the guarantees for earthly prosperity.

Our time is an era of social and moral revolutions that stun the world. There is a growing process of revision and reformation in all spheres of social, cultural, and moral life, altering morality, breaking worldview conceptions, breaking human relationships, causing catastrophic family breakdown, and the emotional cooling off of people for one another. There is a defilement of morality and an apology for sin through art, literature, and the media. Morality and chastity are seen as opposed to nature, which avenges them with neuroses and phobias. Television shows are turning into injections of debauchery, cruelty, and pride. People’s consciousness is becoming more and more secularized. The permissiveness of lust develops parallel to the permissiveness of the mind (as the mind is identified with one of its powers—reason). As a result, man’s religious intuition is blunted, and his spirit goes into itself and remains as if in a lethargic dream, in a state that can be called neither life nor death.

But there remains in the soul of man some feeling of the mystery of eternity, which neither positivism nor atheism can grant. Therefore, man does not completely sever himself from religion, but looks for compromises that would give room to his intellectual lawlessness, and not hinder the lusts of his soul and body, and at the same time would, to some degree, satisfy his religious sensibilities. The general decline of spirituality was a breeding ground for modernism, which promises to create a new, lightened for the will, comfortable for the passions, unfettered by dogmas and canons for the pride of mind liberal and humanitarian Christianity. In this case, a person can go to church and say his prayers, and at the same time do yoga and meditations taken from the East, be a regular at rock concerts, participate in the creation of monastic literary and sports clubs, and in all this consider himself an Orthodox Christian, of course calling himself not a slave of God, but a son of God.

The Gospel teaching and high ideals of Christianity seem to such people not native and natural to their souls, but some unattainable, beautiful abstraction, which is impossible to implement in life, and sometimes an assault against human nature, which responds to this coercion with painful complexes and pathologies. Modernists seek to replace asceticism with the pleasures of fallen human nature; in this sense it is an apology for the passions and a means of fitting them under Christianity. Modernists want to create a unified Christianity, where the good peacefully co-exist with the evil, to replace the Logos of Christ with the logos of Heraclitus. One of the most prominent decadents wrote, “I want that my boat sailed everywhere, and the Lord and the devil both I am ready to glorify” (Bryusov).

In our time of moral degradation and the legalization of what was previously considered a perversion and disgrace, to live in a Christian manner is already a podvig. Morality is one of the organic elements of religion. With its fall, religion stops being the inner life of man and moves to the periphery of his consciousness. Here there are several possible paths of outcome. First is the struggle for morality and the opposition to the temptations of the world, as to a concentrate of passions, and an atmosphere electrified by lust, pride, and egocentricity, in which man lives.

The second path is Gnosticism and skepticism, as a system of denial, as a comfortable way to escape his own conscience and reflections about the meaning of human existence, while religious teachings and moral principle are perceived as relativistic concepts.

The third path is the satisfaction of warped mystical feelings through Eastern pantheistic religions and occultism. The fourth path is liberal Christianity—a compromise between Christianity and the world, which removes moral responsibility from man. This Christianity is not spiritual joy, but a good mood. It’s like a medicine that does not heal, but reassures the ill that he is healthy, hiding from him that his innards are decimated by cancer. It’s a Christianity with a goose on the spit in Lent and concerts in Holy Week; a Christianity where Heaven and earth change places.

The Gospel is not from the world, but from Heaven—it is the voice of eternity, which opens to us that man himself is created for eternity. The Gospel convicts the world in its sins, and therefore the world hates Christ and His followers.

Modernism is a workshop for the production of false christs, the stainer’s cauldron, in which you can dye Church robes in any color. Modernism has no academic, cultural, or theological foundations. It’s a white flag, thrown in front of the aggression of secularism. However, it corresponds to the sentiment of a significant part of society and they accept it without reasoning; they accept it because they want, instead of harsh realities, to believe in a rosy utopia.

There is only one cause for neurosis, the alienation from God, and there is only one cause for psychosis, the fear of death.

There is only one therapy for them: Christ and His Church.

Euthanasia – The Mercy of the Devil

The Christian attitude towards suffering and death

Prayer of our Holy Father St. Ambrose, Bishop of Milan

(St. Ambrose attributed this prayer to the Apostle Matthew, upon the occasion of the Apostle’s conversion.)

Thee alone I follow, Lord Jesus, Who heals my wounds. For what shall separate me from the love of God, which is in Thee! Shall tribulation, or distress, or famine? I am held fast as though by nails, and fettered by the bonds of charity. Remove from me, O Lord Jesus, with Thy potent sword, the corruption of my sins. Secure me in the bonds of Thy love; cut away what is corrupt in me. Come quicldy and make an end of my many, my hidden and secret afflictions. Open the wound lest the evil humour spread. With Thy new washing, cleanse in me all that is stained. Hear me, you earthly men, who in your sins bring forth drunken thoughts: I have found a Physican. He dwells in Heaven and distributes His healing on earth. He alone can heal my pains Who Himself has none. He alone Who knows what is hidden, can take away the grief of my heart, the fear of my soul—Jesus Christ. Christ is grace, Christ is life, Christ is Resurrection! Amen.

I beg you on my knees, sisters: do not kill your children!

“When you go for an abortion, you are cold on the inside from fear and doubts. There is no faith, only emptiness…

“Actually, you know that you’re doing something horrible, but everyone tries to persuade you that it’s from fear for your health, that you’re scared of the operation. But health has nothing to do with it—you’re going to kill your child, and the horror is all from that. Everyone says that at such an early date there’s nothing there—it’s a lie. Everyone knows the baby is already alive and real, from the first day. Only the lies of those around you and your own insecurities can push you to such a path.

If only I had known then that the moment of becoming pregnant is the moment when the Lord Himself had decided to bestow a child upon me and make me a mother! And it means that God Himself knows I am ready. If only I had understood that there is an enemy who is making haste to destroy my soul, rob my child of life, and to do so he lies, and frightens, leading me to despair, and there’s a whole army around me helping him in this. If only I had known then that the Lord never abandons even one mother without help and sustenance. We need only to pray to Him, and He will help. If only I had known that I would never be able to forgive myself for this choice. If only I had known that parents are special people to whom God has given to a specific child, to make his life better and more secure, to protect him, and most importantly, to love him. If my mama had said, ‘Don’t worry, dear, I’m with you,’ then nothing could have made me walk that corridor.

You don’t need much to not walk this path: Believe that everything will be okay, rely on God with all your heart, and most importantly, don’t listen to the enemy. Death is what the enemy has chosen for us. The Lord gives life everlasting! And to all those who have gone through this, I say: All the pain in your life is from unrepentant sin. Make haste to God and repent, and He will heal your soul. Everything can change, as long as we’re alive.”

The sound Christian mind of Vincent Rossi is confirmed by his very early acknowledgement of the extraordinary importance of father Seraphim Rose for the Western man and the rebirth of Christianity in the West (yet every Christian, everywhere, has a lot to learn from his life and works and struggle).

After the completion of the repentance of the Rus’, the re-chrismation of the Western man is the most important task in the battle to retard the incoronation of the antichrist, so that more souls may be saved before the end.

Father Seraphim of Platina is the first saint that the Western man has produced in a millennium, in my poor understanding, and it would be extremely important for the Church’s hierarchies to recognize it.
Extremely important, not necessary though.

Holy father Seraphim, pray and intercede to the Lord for us!

St. Seraphim of Platina

According to the servants of the father of lies (John 8, 44), in Latvia the average gross salary is 927 euro. Not bad, isn’t it? It’s a pity, however, that the calculation criteria are the following:

At the Children Hospital of Riga, nine nurses take a gross salary of 500 euro while the Chairman of the Board of the institution 5,000 euro.

Therefore, in the la-la-la land the average gross salary of hospital workers is 1,000 euro, but in Latvia the average gross salary of 90% of the people is something between 500 and 600 euro, with almost no benefit attached (that is, the worker must pay for transportation, healthcare, lunch and everything else).

In the la-la-la land, they cannot understand why the population has decreased by a quarter since the indipendence in 1992, through emigration and demographic deficit (that is, people do not make children). In Latvia, 90% of the people know very well the reason why for that.

There are lies, damned lies, amazing lies and astonishing lies. Then there are statistics, the truth of the antichrist!

Oh please, do not think that the system is broken and can be fixed; the system is designed this way. You must get rid of the system, you must get rid of the masonic republic, you must get rid of demonocracy.
