And how dare you besmirch the memory of Vladika Philaret of
blessed memory. You do it every chance you get. Any one else
you would wish to defame? Interesting how we can do a "snow

dallies into modernism. Look the abrogation of fasting. Look
at the almost complete erasure of confession in some
locales. Look at the simplistic attitudes that mark a
debased humanism that permeates the modernists.
The world is turned upside down. Black has become white and
white, black. I shake my head.
