I like it.

St. Aleksandr Nevsky is one of the very few martial saints we Orthodox venerate. Leaving aside Roman soldiers who were outed as secret Christians during the Imperial persecutions and died as martyrs as a result (St. George, St. Demetrius, the 40 Martyrs of Sebaste. . .) the only ones besides him who springs readily to mind is St. Lazar and St. Olaf (for those of us who follow St. John Maximovitch’s advice and have restored the veneration of Western saints from before the Latin schism, though some of us are minded also to venerate St. Harold, Last Orthodox King of England).

If the Cold War between US and Russia were to resume, on whose side would God be?

Interesting choice. Nevsky’s the guy who beat the Teutonic Knights when he defended Novgorod [his city], by fighting them on a frozen lake.

But he’s also the Russian prince who made submission to Batu Quan. A sort of Quisling with blinis.

IF you can find a link you can download the 1938 Alexander Nevsky movie with English subtitles because there are no copyrights on the movie.

There was a 2008 Nevsky movie, but I never watched it, the trailer was here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdyZKx57sNc

Somehow I’m not surprised. The Rooskies are probably hoping for all the Divine help they can get with all the terrible accidents involving their subs in recent years.
