Discouraging words, to the extent that it is accurate.
Not specifically related to the Catholics but in general, I've started to second guess my romantic view of the Russian Church. I'm afraid, as much as I'd like it to be otherwise, that his comment that the church is more or a tool for Putin than the kingdom of God, is more likely than not. And the xenophobic nature of the oppression of other Christian denominations from the Patriarchate is bound to harm rather than help the church (i.e. her people).
I'm not sure what to say about it all but, thanks be to God for the ROCOR.
