Holy Russia: abundantly tithe...

One hero of the cold war was Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, the foremost American prelate of the twentieth century. Here are his words on Russia from his own autobiography:

"Despite my opposition to the evils of communism, I have always loved Russia. The chalice I use every day in Holy Mass was used in St. Petersburg in its days of faith...The little tabernacle in my private chapel is a replica of a Russian church. Thus do I express my hopes for the ultimate conversion of Russia. Not in war, but in prayer must we trust that the land which once was known as Holy Russia may become again the wellspring whence a pure stream of Christianity may flow..."

-Treasure in Clay by Fulton J. Sheeen c. 1980
