Murders and Assaults on Priests in Russia

By all means, drop what you're doing and go to Orthodoxy and the World to read the article Murders and Assaults on Priests in Russia in 1990-2010: A Reference. It's both horrifying to think of the cruelty inflicted on these servants of the Church, and inspiring to read of their martyric ends. Lord, have mercy!

As social commentary, I don't know whether the article referenced or this article (http://www.pravmir.ru/i-ubity/) about murders of WWII veterans makes me more sad about the present state of Russia. They both make me pretty downcast.
