Editor Comments: Remember, the Russian government is attempting to seize relics from ROAC. If they can successfully seize relics, then eventually they’ll begin seizing the relics of all other TOC in Russia. First they seize temples, vestments, icons, and now, why not relics? Soon no true Orthodox Christian priest in Russia will be able to safely keep an antimension without fear of the police busting in and ‘re-possessing’ the relic of the martyr. To those who say we are too ‘harsh’ on the World Orthodox patriarchates, let them take a good look at the fruits of these forces of wickedness. First they preach heresy (ecumenism and sergianism), and then they persecute, and now they will make life as difficult as possible. To all those on the border or the fence, remember, choose now whom you will serve, but, “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Josue 24:15)
An hour and an half meeting in Washington was initiated by representatives of the U.S. government in connection with the last campaign of persecution against ROAC unleashed by the authorities of the Russian Federation. As reported by “Portal-Credo.Ru” , on May 24, Court of Arbitration of the Vladimir region has decided to seize the relics of St. Euphemia and St. Euphrosyne of Suzdal from ROAC, and on June 4 bailiffs arrest power was given for such a purpose.
