Russia’s Revolution

A profitable read for this morning is another fine, precise and elucidating article by Father Rutler, on this quasi-anniversary of the Russian Revolution (as he mentions, they still used the older Julian calendar back then, resisting the corrections mandated by Pope Gregory XIII in 1584). As I wrote the other day, the Russian revolutionaries, Bolsheviks and Communists, have indeed spread her errors around the world, subtly and often by subversion, errors that must be resisted by might and main, and a clear and founded intellectual and spiritual formation, all too evidently lacking in today’s modern mediocre Church, especially in the West.

But it is never too late for correction, and striving for perfection, as Christ so willed.
