As Hollywood and Oprah Push for “Values of the Day” Putin Hails ‘Eternal Christian Values’ at Christmas Celebration

Follow Mystic Post on Facebook

Russian President Vladimir Putin has offered greetings to Orthodox Christians and all Russians on Christmas celebrated according to the Julian calendar on January 7.

A Kremlin press service statement quoted Putin as saying that Christmas “gives millions of believers joy and hope.”

Putin said the holiday accustoms Orthodox Christians to “spiritual origins and fatherly traditions, and unites them around eternal Christian values” and the “centuries-old historic and cultural heritage of our people.”

He also said that the Russian Orthodox Church and other Christian denominations have “made a significant contribution to strengthening high moral ideals in society, educating the growing generation, and solving vital social problems.”


Putin attended Orthodox Christmas services at the Church of saints Simeon and Ann in St. Petersburg as the clock turned to January 7.

Meanwhile, Russian state television channels showed a live broadcast of the Christmas Eve midnight Mass from Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral.

Russian Orthodox Church Patriarch Kirill conducted the ceremonies at the Moscow site before hundreds of worshippers, including Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev as well as several other Russian government and parliamentary officials.

I’ve been enjoying Mystic Posts for several years now. Today, when so much seems to be going wrong in the world, Mystic Post is working hard to provide truthful Catholic news. I want to support that Robb R. UK

I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information. Annonymous Donator

  • I would like to comment that Oprah does not represent true American values. I’ve been following Mystic Post for a few months now and I have noticed the authors infatuation with Vladimir Putin. Although Putin ourwardly appears to exemplify Christian values, one must keep in mind Putin is a politician, with a political agenda. It is my opinion that the author is using one particular message from Our Lady of Mejugorje to claim that Russia will save the world. Keep in mind Russia has aligned themselves with rogue nations like China and Iran
    Also I would like to point out Russia has the second highest abortion rate in the world. USA 4th. Whereas one more supreme court nomination in this country and Roe V Wade can be overturned. President Trump just received the award as being the pro life person of the Year. Source Lifesite news. I agree Russia will play a very important role in these end times. But God has not abandoned us in our sin. The USA has a very special place in Our Lord and Our Lady’s heart. One can see they have great plans for the USA as well. One has only to read the messages of Holy Live ministries to know this. I would encourage the author and all to go to holy love .org. Our Lady has been appearing to visionary Maureen Sweeny in Ohio since 1985. Wayne Weible even wrote a book about it called ” Intimate Messages From Heaven. Wayne same author as “Medjugorje the message” throughout the messages during the last presidential election here in the USA it is apparent Donald Trump was hand picked by God. I encourage all to go to Life site news and watch President Trumps speech about Christmas calling Jesus Our Lord and Savior. The Hollywood liberals are on a slippery slope toward morality….and it’s scaring them to death…. and that includes Oprah. Source Life site news

    • You are wrong about Abortion they have passsed laws restricting abortions..
      Why do you think you know more than Our Lady. Open your eyes and look at what is really happening .. Did you predict the rise of Christianity in Russia? Our Lady did. So why should we listen to you? Medjugorje and Fatima are the only Marian apparition that has prophecy that has come true.
