For His Friends

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

Христос Воскресе!

For today, I offer Vadim Vinogradov’s documentary «За други своя» (from A.D. 2003) about how Russian Orthodox Christians rallied to defend their homeland during the Second World War, despite the Communist state’s persecution of them during the previous decades. Even if you cannot follow Russian at all, the film includes much interesting original footage.

Russia still has many open wounds that need dressed and healed, but its transformation since the fall of the U.S.S.R. has been miraculous.

All those Leonine prayers worked—though not in the way Rome likely intended.
