MERCY: a Russian volunteer movement

sacred spring

Life is harder in Russia than in America, materially. But Russia is an Orthodox Christian nation, traditionally at least, and that Tradition is continuing to revive after the Soviet era, which tested Orthodox Christian Russia to the limit, a limit which from a human standpoint did not seem to be “reasonably” endurable.

When I read Solzenhitsyn’s “The Gulag Archipelago” (Book 1) several years ago I could only read one chapter a week simply because I found it overwhelming. But our loving and faithful God alone knows our limits and our possibilities as peoples made in His image, called to shine forth in His likeness.

Here is an English translation of the website of the Russian ministry MERCY. They seek to serve those in need, including people with disabilities: http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=1&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.miloserdie-nn.ru%2F&sl=ru&tl=en
