The state spits on the saints and invites physical and spiritual disaster—Metropolitan Luke of Zaporozhye

The Ukrainian authorities are sadly ignorant of the spiritual laws that govern the universe. Instead, they spit upon the Church and the saints, says His Eminence Metropolitan Luke of Zaporozhye.

The Metropolitan was among the UOC hierarchs who tried to see President Zelensky on Monday in order to personally hand him the Synod’s appeal in connection with the ongoing persecution of the Kiev Caves Lavra (read the text of the appeal here).

The hierarchs, led by His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry of Kiev and All Ukraine, waited outside for several hours, but in the end had to leave when the authorities sounded an air raid alarm.

Met. Luke responded to the incident on his Telegram channel yesterday.

The authorities’ disregard for the Holy Synod of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, “which culminated in a low-grade show with an air raid alarm,” is a spit upon both the hierarchs and the millions of Orthodox faithful. It’s also a spit upon peace and stability, the hierarch writes.

It’s also a spit upon the saints of the Kiev Caves, whom the “newly revealed God-fighters today describe as ‘museum exhibits’ and plan to transfer into the hands of the new ‘renovationists,’” His Eminence emphasizes.

“Of course, having the power, you can trample on any human laws,” Met. Luke continues. “And you can mock those who are trying with all their might to save our people from disaster. After all, there are also spiritual laws. It is precisely these laws that lie at the foundation of our being.”

In waiting outside the Office of the President, the Synod was not showing “subservience to the authorities,” but rather “an example of how to act like a Christian… Yesterday there was an attempt to strive for peace not in words, but in deeds.”

And for their Christian behavior, they were “spat upon, laughed at, photographed, and insulted by people passing by,” Met. Luke reveals. “But they also mocked Christ, spat on Him,” when Pilate had Him crucified.

Unfortunately, the authorities have no concept of the prayerful support of the saints: “Have the modern Neros thought about what would happen if the saints of the Kiev Caves removed their prayerful protection over the capital of Ukraine? Did it occur to them that the intensification of the persecution of the Church leads to devastating consequences for the whole country?”

The authorities should read War and the Bible by St. Nikolai Velimirović, where they could learn that the Lord grants peace and prosperity to the people on the basis of the virtue of the leaders. “For the sake of the virtue of the leaders, the Lord averts the attackers and grants the people victory.”

Conversely, if the leaders become proud, they fall away from God, and “the Lord severely punishes both the leaders and the people.”

In conclusion, His Eminence asks: “Who will be defeated by depriving the UOC of the Kiev Caves Lavra? After all, we know that even the slightest shock in the spiritual sphere is a harbinger of great catastrophes and disasters in our everyday lives.”

MOSCOW, March 22. /TASS/. Russia’s parliamentary commission investigating the work of American biological laboratories in Ukraine considers its mission completed as it managed to piece together the puzzle of the US’ biological activities across the world, co-head of the commission, Deputy Speaker of Russia's Federation Council (upper house) Konstantin Kosachev said on Wednesday. "What we saw was obviously not originally meant to be discovered, much less be investigated. But we, our parliamentary commission, considers its mission completed. We managed to piece together a fragmented picture of the current developments. We have no doubt left that the US’ medical-biological program is of dual purpose, and this second purpose of the US’ program is its military dimension," he said. At the very least, the issue is about Washington’s having the technology to produce biological weapons, and at most to produce these biological weapons for use in any corner of the planet if necessary, Kosachev added. "And as the Americans have declared Russia as the main geopolitical opponent and even enemy, the Russian territory obviously stands at the top of this list," he noted. The Satanic western criminal cabal uses every diabolical option to kill and maim Orthodoxy in Russia and Ukraine and around the globe. The most heinous nuclear and biologic weapons are specific for killing as many Russian Orthodox believers as is diabolically possible.

“Leading GOP Lawmakers Push To Send Cluster Bombs To Ukraine by Tyler Durden Wednesday, Mar 22, 2023 - 05:45 AM So much for weapons deemed inhumane and banned under UN-backed international treaties... apparently it's OK if they are used against Russians or other official enemies of the United States - at least according to the logic of some US lawmakers. A group of four Republican members of Congress are urging President Biden to send Ukraine cluster munitions as part of the next major weapons package approval . "Ukraine is seeking the MK-20, an air-delivered cluster bomb, to release its individual explosives from drones, and 155 mm artillery cluster shells," according to prior reporting in Reuters. These Republican hawks want to provide it. The letter is signed by the following influential, high-level GOP Congress members:  * Jim Risch, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, * Roger Wicker, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, * Mike McCaul, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee * Mike Rogers the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee Some 120 countries have banned cluster munitions as they have long been understood to be more indiscriminate than conventional weapons, given they randomly disperse small bombs over large areas.” These weapons will also be used only against Orthodox believers in Eastern Ukraine. Despite the assertion of the Anglozionist “convert” on this site who calls himself Joseph Lipper, and David, and Redington, almost all of Eastern Ukraine where the genocide of Orthodox believers is occurring are followers of the UOC(Ukrainian Orthodox Church).

On March 20, British Deputy Defense Minister Annabelle Goldi stated that the country would transfer ammunition with depleted uranium to Ukraine. The UN opposed the supply of such shells. Sergey Lavrov assured that he saw "the statements of some Western representatives that, they say, it's okay, nothing is prohibited from the category of ammunition with depleted uranium, we do not violate any conventions." "But still, they remember what results of the use of depleted uranium ammunition led to in Yugoslavia, in Iraq, when tens of thousands of civilians, as well as NATO soldiers themselves, who used these depleted uranium ammunition, suffered," he said (quoted from Interfax). These diabolical weapons will be used in civilian areas in ZAPOROZHYE, as well as other civilian areas in Kherson, Lugansk, Donetsk, Nikoliev, The Satanic/western criminal cabal is determined to kill as many Orthodox believers as possible, whether they are located in Russia or Ukraine. It is suggested by some that one of the goals of the western criminal cabal in their war in Ukrainian aside from trying to destroy Russia and Russia Orthodoxy is to kill as many Orthodox believers as possible whether they are soldiers or civilians, and the reason the US/UK/NATO refuse any efforts at peace.
