The centenary of the abdication from the throne of the holy Royal Martyr Tsar Nicholas II will be marked by a Patriarchal Divine Liturgy, as established by the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church at its March 9th meeting in Moscow, reports the site of the Moscow Patriarchate.

The prayerful commemoration will take place March 15, on the anniversary of Tsar Nicholas’ stepping-down from the throne, which is also the day of the “Reigning” or “Enthroned” Icon of the Mother of God which miraculously appeared in the village of Kolomenskoye, near Moscow, on the same day as the tsar’s abdication. The appearance of the icon was perceived by the faithful as a sign that the Mother of God would protect the Russian land in the stead of the tsar, from which it takes its name.

The Reigning Icon is kept at the Kazan Church in Kolomenskoye Park where it was found, and is one of modern Russia’s main sacred objects. Patriarch Kirill is scheduled to celebrate the anniversary Liturgy in this church.

Krupin notes in his letter to Russia's prime minister that "after the murder of Nicholas II, the Soviet government had blackened the name of the Emperor and wiped away his achievements. We want to remind Russians that during the reign of Nicholas II, Russia was a country of strength, power and prosperity. The exhibition project will contribute to the revival of the historical truth, because the history of Nicholas II, is still shrouded in many myths which we want to dispel."

George, hatred of the Jews is a crime against the light. Take heed. Do you know better than God himself?

Alexandr Solzhenitsyn, who spent his life studying the Russian Revolution, says:
"You must understand, the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime is proof that the global media is in the hands of the perpetrators."
He is referring to the Jews, who hate our Lord.
