Back to Church

Russian church
The revival of the Russian Orthodox Church is one of the big stories of the post-Communist era. Savagely suppressed throughout the long years of Communist rule, the church has rapidly regained a powerful position in Russian society. Russian Orthodoxy is so strong today that all the major candidates in the recent presidential election -- including the Communist, Gennady Zyuganov -- claimed to represent the traditions of the church.

Perhaps, as the faithful ponder their choices in this week's crucial election, they might pray for guidance in terms inspired by the prayer of Philaret, Patriarch of Moscow.
