As preparations get underway for this year's 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, the country's small Catholic Church is keeping a low profile.
However, because some Russian Catholics support the policies of President Vladimir Putin, the church is looking to remain neutral and focus on prayer services and discussions of the church's history of the last century.
"Although we won't be commemorating the revolution, our church communities will naturally reflect on what happened," said Msgr. Igor Kovalevsky, secretary-general of the Russian bishops' conference. "We'll pray for Russia, and for all those who died for their faith during those dreadful years. But the Catholic faithful hold various political views, so the church won't try to promote any one position," he said. tradcatknight.blogspot.com/2017/02/russias-catholics-keeping-low-profile.html#more
