True Orthodoxy in Russia

(rpac.ru) Little information is being given concerning the seizure of ten ROAC temples in the Suzdal region taking place over the current days. The website only mentions the seizures are currently taking place at ten different locales. It is safe to assume the webmasters, themselves monastics, currently have their hands full. As the official ROAC position is that they will do whatever is in their power to keep the temples out of government hands, there is probably little time to update the website.

The most recent updates besides short notes on the seizures were an open letter to President Medvedev– and a reprinting of the Synod Abroad’s 1970 Anathema against Stalin and the Soviets. As the ROAC formed in a new era in Russian history of limited cooperation with the state, the change is startling; as the cooperation has shifted from religion in general to the Moscow Patriarchate, the ROAC appears to be returning to its catabomb roots.
