(I thought this posted earlier this week. Dratted computers.)
How the Catholic Church in Russia is doing is not mainstrem news, so it was fascinating to read about a recent trip of several members of Madonna House staff to Moscow and their field house in Krasnoyarsk (central Siberia).
In his piece Signs of Hope in Russia, Fr. David May describes the 24/7 prayer in a small chapel at Red Square, the many churches at the Kremlin, and attending the Divine Liturgy at the parish of a contemporary martyr.
It sounds like there are signs of hope indeed.
