So... we approach the centenary of probably the worst year in the history of the Christian world.
In the scale of its unleashed and still-continuing massively-destructive viciousness and hatred; terror, torture and murder; In the scope of its calculated and principled lying; its achievement and example in the subversion and inversion of virtue; And in terms of its sustained, on-going and wide-spread effect -- surely the events of 1917 were the greatest and most lasting of blows against Christians, and against mankind generally?
Therefore let us expect, and prepare for, this tragic and damning anniversary to be noted with approval, positively-regarded - indeed actively-celebrated by our ruling elites and their servants.
Thus we may know our enemies - their motivations and the extent of their power and influence.
"surely the events of 1917 were the greatest and most lasting of blows against Christians, and against mankind generally"
I presume you are referring above all to the Russian Revolution.
But — 1917 was also the year of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima. God's counter-strike against Satan, through His handmaid the Blessed Virgin. So although our enemies will celebrate the centenary, we too have a banner to rally around in 2017, if we will recognize it.
@JB - Part of my point is that we have to think about it - when 1917 should be burned onto our collective consciousness. Well, in a sense it is for the Russian Orthodox who understand it perhaps better than any other group:
Horrific tragedy . . . really the dénouement of the modern age, since the dramatic arcs started a few centuries beforehand.
I have a realistic hope, though, for Russia, where there is a movement toward a widespread repentance of regicide. I no longer find it incredible that I could witness the restoration of Christian monarchy in Russia.
