Santiago Matamoros

Saint James, the one who symbolically brought St John the Baptist’s cockle (and Christian Baptism) to Spain and was interred there during the time of Queen Lupa’s reign – is known as the son of thunder (his voice was loud and clear carried far around when he preached) also known as the son of lightning – https://catholicsouthernfront.wordpress.com/chapter-912-our-lady-and-the-carolingian-dynasty/ – https://catholicsouthernfront.wordpress.com/chapter-916-the-new-world/ and Matamoros. He was considered to be a miraculous apparition which devoured Moors in Europe and Aztecs in South America!!! He appeared astride his horse during the Battle of Clavijo in 846 AD in Spain against the Moors and in 1506 AD against the Aztecs in Mexico City.

In 1860 AD, the French erected a statue ‘Notre Dame de France’ forged from the metal of 213 cannon captured from the Russians.

Smolensk, Kazan and Tikhvin

Hello everybody. Welcome to my blog exploring the miraculous, particularly the miraculous interventions of Our Lady during wartime throughout history. On your right do peruse through 60 chapters of such wartime miraculous interventions, and do note that many Nations are today still ‘Nations‘ and at least in part Christian only – solely – through Our Lady’s intervention before the Triune God.

Case in point – Russia, or rather the third Rome (Moscow).

If Russia has a strategic weakness (apart from its huge borders) it must be its Capital City. That’s right, if Moscow falls the entire Northern Euro-Asian Continent falls!

But that is not what happened throughout the Ages. As Constantinople’s Christian Icons were removed to Russia (following the end of Emperor Constantine Paleologos’ reign May 29, 1453 A.D.)

The Icons were placed in strategic locations to protect Russia. Many were the battles fought (a few chapters on the right include such) however the following is new to me and here I would like to share with you fellows who are still comingto terms with the fact that the miraculous sustains our reality.

So at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Moscow we read that:-

The original blitzkrieg invasion plan, which the Axis called Operation Barbarossa, called for the capture of Moscow within four months. However, despite large initial advances, the Wehrmacht was slowed by Soviet resistance (in particular during the Battle of Smolensk, which lasted from July through September 1941 and delayed the German offensive towards Moscow for two months). Having secured Smolensk, the Wehrmacht chose to consolidate its lines around Leningrad and Kiev, further delaying the drive towards Moscow. The Axis advance was renewed on October 2, 1941, with an offensive codenamed Operation Typhoon, to complete the capture of Moscow before the onset of winter.

After an advance leading to the encirclement and destruction of several Soviet armies, the Soviets stopped the Germans at the Mozhaisk defensive line, just 120 km (75 mi) from the capital. Having penetrated the Soviet defenses, the Wehrmacht offensive was slowed by weather conditions, with autumn rains turning roads and fields into thick mud that significantly impeded Axis vehicles, horses, and soldiers. Although the onset of colder weather and the freezing of the ground allowed the Axis advance to continue, it continued to struggle against stiffening Soviet resistance.

By early December, the lead German Panzer Groups stood less than 30 kilometers (19 mi) from the Kremlin, and Wehrmacht officers were able to see some of Moscow’s buildings with binoculars; but the Axis forces were unable to make further advances. On December 5, 1941, fresh Soviet Siberian troops, prepared for winter warfare, attacked the German forces in front of Moscow; by January 1942, the Soviets had driven the Wehrmacht back 100 to 250 km (60 to 150 mi), ending the immediate threat to Moscow and marking the closest that Axis forces ever got to capturing the Soviet capital.

The Battle of Moscow was one of the most important battles of World War II, primarily because the Soviets were able to successfully prevent the most serious attempt to capture their capital. The battle was also one of the largest during the war, with more than a million total casualties. It marked a turning point as it was the first time since the Wehrmacht began its conquests in 1939 that it had been forced into a major retreat. The Wehrmacht had been forced to retreat earlier during the Yelnya Offensive in September 1941 and at the Battle of Rostov (which led to von Rundstedt losing command of German forces in the East), but these retreats were minor compared to the one at Moscow.

We know that the German Nazi’s were 30 kms away from the third Rome and the City’s skyline was atleast viewed through binoculars.

In August 1941, German forces captured the city of Smolensk, an important stronghold on the road to Moscow. Smolensk was historically considered as the “key” to Moscow because it controlled a landbridge located between the Dvina, Dnieper, and several other rivers, allowing for a fast advance by ground troops without the necessity of building major bridges across wide rivers. The desperate Soviet defense of the Smolensk region lasted for two months, from July 10, 1941 to September 10, 1941.[6] This intense engagement, known as the Battle of Smolensk, delayed the German advance until mid-September, effectively disrupting the blitzkrieg and forcing Army Group Center to use almost half of its strategic reserves (10 divisions out of 24) during the battle.[6]

We also know that the battle at Smolensk was particular :-https://catholicsouthernfront.wordpress.com/chapter-944-our-lady-of-smolensk/

Elsewhere, the German advance was also bogged down. Near Leningrad, Army Group North was held up by the Luga defense line for almost a month before eventually overrunning it. In the south, Army Group South, which included many Hungarian and Romanian units that were less well trained, equipped and experienced than the Wehrmacht, faced several serious counterattacks and was stopped. The Wehrmacht now faced a dilemma, as Army Group Center was still strong enough to reach Moscow — but such an advance would create a bulge in the German lines, leaving it vulnerable to Red Army flanking attacks. Moreover, according to Hitler, Germany needed the food and mineral resources located in the Ukraine.[7] Thus, the Wehrmacht was ordered to first secure the Donbass region and to move towards Moscow afterwards.[8] Heinz Guderian‘s Panzer Army was turned south to support Gerd von Rundstedt‘s attack on Kiev,[7] which inflicted another significant defeat on the Red Army. On September 19, 1941, Soviet forces had to abandon Kiev after Stalin’s persistent refusal to withdraw forces from the Kiev salient, as recorded by Aleksandr Vasilevsky and Georgy Zhukov in their respective memoirs.[9][10] This refusal cost Zhukov his post of Chief of the General Staff,[11] but his prediction of German encirclement was correct. Several Soviet armies were encircled and annihilated by the Wehrmacht in a double pincer movement, allowing the German forces to advance in the south.[12]

And we just posted that at Leningrad :-https://catholicsouthernfront.wordpress.com/2009/05/16/a-russian-madonna-is-the-same-as-the-catholic-one/

Therefor, what else do we learn regarding the Battle for Moscow (‘The Great Patriotic Battle’ as referred to by the Russians “Nasdarovje”) Well, Stalin had already ordered the purges throughout Russian society, however apparently even though the chap was a confirmed dictator he was advised by a holy monk (one of the few survivors of the purges and one who was never sent to the gulags) that an angel had appeared to him to thank Stalin for not leaving and abandoning the City. That is right the holy angel thanked the dictator for not abandoning the last shreds of Russian Christianity and heritage he had left within him and around. Stalin was also warned, by the holy monk, that if he had the salvation of physical Moscow at heart, he was to have the Icon of Tikhvin flown three times around the City. An act which the dictator carried out!!

The Tikhvin Icon was flown by plane around the Moscowite skies atleast for three laps.

Earlier on in Russian history the Tikhvin Icon was also known for having protected Russia from the Swedish invasions of 1614 A.D., http://members.tripod.com/~shtyetz_john/tikhvin-icon.html

THE REST IS HISTORY (actually consistant, constant and repetitive history of the salvation which comes directly from God)

Ahhh… Stalin’s Communist Party was finally defunct also thanks to Our lady, check :-
