Can Catholics learn hard-identity from the Jews? Anatevka, edition

Above, a weather vane in Anatevka, just outside of Kyiv, Ukraine. Our fiddler is preaching, if you will, to the North, as tradition has it, toward the enemy, Moscow, some 100+ years ago. And now it’s happening again.

The Ukraine has been beaten down again and again, to death, as have the Jews. It would be good for all of us to see some of that tradition, how tradition is lived out, in hard identity, in our daily lives. That’s what preaches to the enemy.

These are all people, just like you and I, not to be dismissed, put to a genocide, again, today, as the world looks on. Stalin murdered by starvation the Ukrainians by the millions, the Holodomor, in a much bigger starvation of hundreds of millions throughout Russia, typical diabolical, Communism. Ukrainians are still recovering, 100+ years later, and now, while they are still down, the guy who has prostituted himself to Satana, the putana of Moscow, is on the attack. But let’s hear about the greatness of tradition:

I don’t care whether or not Russia was consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary or not (a thousand arguments either side). Fact: Russia is spreading her errors throughout the world, still. Think Biden. Think Trudeau. Think Putin. Think of Catholics who are in dire need of learning some hard-identity Catholicism…

Tradition is not a weakness. It’s the strength of the history of the world, now redeemed by the Lord of History. Tradition is all about being at the heart of Life. God is Life.

But how many actually enjoy killing Tradition, marginalizing those who try to hold up tradition? So, how are we supposed to survive anything in this world without tradition, indeed, without Sacred Tradition? Why take this away?

    Probably the best part of the entire play. So full of the beauty and challenge of life. Thank you, Father.

    Yes, Communism is diabolical and it has spread throughout the world. So much cruelty has thus been perpetrated: starvation and bloodshed employed by openly communist governments but also by assaults dressed up as progress – feminism, abortion and unnatural lifestyles – initially promoted in Communist Russia and later taken up by “democratic” governments. Today, very few world leaders uphold traditions rooted in God’s love for man. In previous wars, we were able to see “our side” as the good side … but now? Is it only Putin who has prostituted himself to Satan?

    It matters if Russia was /is consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for if so, there is still hope for the world. What Putin is doing in the Ukraine is reprehensible and what is presently playing out could erupt into WWIII, but Our Lady can turn it all around. Where is the Pope? Surely it would be in keeping with his office as Christ’s Vicar on Earth to mount a Rosary Crusade involving every Catholic parish world-wide, and for him with all the bishops to (re)consecrate Russia and the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    I don’t think it a coincidence that this crisis is presenting on the eve of Ash Wednesday. In October 2019 when the Amazon Synod brought the demon goddess Pachamama into the heart of the Church, it was reported that an angel spoke to the Akita seer, Sister Agnes Katsuko Sasagawa, calling for penance: “Cover in ashes and pray the Penitential Rosary every day”. Now comes the news just a few hours ago of a Russian military convoy sighted near Kyiv that is more than 40 miles long. The whole world is aroused and both sides have terrible weapons as well. Lord have mercy, Mary help us!
