German Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis once said, “We used to pray for the intentions of the Pope and the conversion of Russia. Now we pray for the intentions of Russia and the conversion of the Pope”.

Do not pray for intentions of Russia. Except that gangster Putin did not allowed homo mafia in Russia (which is good) he is no different then any dictator.

I don't see Mr. Putin so much as "gangster" as I do as someone that is very much nationalist, and loves his country very much. Yes, he has a huge ego, but he is very fit, and an active individual.

I don't see Mr. Putin so much as "gangster" as I do as someone that is very much nationalist, and loves his country very much. Yes, he has a huge ego, but he is very fit, and an active individual.

He also doesn't allow the perverts access to children, or family institutions. And, if you come to Russia to live, you live as a RUSSIAN, Russia does NOT change for YOU! Period! NO - changing the language, culture, society, education, religion, etc to "accomodate" YOU! Instead, YOU CHANGE to FIT IN! Just like it >>>USED TO BE<<< in The USA! Now look at what we have for a "president"! And, our Constitutional Republic is falling apart, fragmenting, and our once mighty military..... BUT, this administration is imprisoning patriots for the "crimes" of free assembly, free association, and free speech.....under cruel, unusual, and harsh conditions.....

There will, hopefully, be a surge in priests desiring to join the FSSP and ICKSP. There may be am increase in men following Frs. Nix and Hannon into the life of diocesan hermit. There will be no place in many dioceses for young, traditional priests. Some may have the holiness to be true white martyrs like Padre Pio was during the years when the authorities thought him a dangerous charlatan. Others will go against their conscience and play the game and be phonies. Sadly, others will leave ministry. Seminarians should certainly leave their dioceses and seek a better place to pursue their vocations. It will be a bad scene.

Let's hope so! If not the SSPX will get even bigger.
