Church Design Competition

I wish you well in the new civil year. May A.D. 2012 be a good year for you.

The Art Newspaper has a story about the Moscow Patriarchate’s project to solicit architectural and artistic designs for two hundred churches that are to be built in Moscow’s suburbs: “Competition launched to decorate Moscow churches.” At the beginning of the film version of The Return of the King, Treebeard proclaims that the filth of Saruman is washing away (based on a line near the end of The Two Towers: “. . . it will be foul water for a while, until all the filth of Saruman is washed away.”) I think that such is true in Russia, as well. The mire of Soviet theomachy is slowly disappearing. The effects of the revolution remain and will remain for ages. However, the Russian land and its people are slowly healing thanks to God’s mercy.
