New Catholic Film On Russia's Christian Renaissance

a fascinating look into a country that is both eagerly returning to Christianity and still grappling with an atheist past


On the centenary of the Bolshevik Revolution, Catholic News Service released a 30-minute film, FACES AMONG ICONS: Orthodox Believers in Contemporary Russia. 

Through interviews with the Roman Catholic archbishop of Moscow, a top official of the Russia Orthodox Church, and Orthodox monks, deacons, authors, professors and laypeople—including a Russian rock singer—the film pays tribute to Russians who kept the Christian faith alive through bloody persecution and now are trying to chart a course for the future.

As Eugene Vodolazkin, one of the film’s prominent subjects says, “Russia and the West are children of one culture with Christianity at its foundation.” .
