RIP Metropolitan Vitaly
I understand he was not the nicest man but had a long, full life spanning epochs in Russian and world history. He was born in St Petersburg in 1910.
God be good to him.
- Archimandrite Serge (Keleher)

Beatification process for Metropolitan Andrew (Sheptytsky) moving along
A Polish count (Austrian graf) who became the head of the Ukrainian Catholic Church for the first half of the 20th century, dying during World War II two years before the Soviet persecution really began. He was high-church ‘Ortho-philic’ even though ‘it wasn’t cool’.

Russian Old Believer council condemns artificial insemination
Because embryos are killed. A Catholic position. Хорошо. They are a separate church from the Russian Orthodox but still ‘in the family’ preserving mediæval Russian Orthodox practices.
