AN UNEXPECTED THEOPOLITCAL GEM FROM RUSSIA

Pope John Paul II referred to Vladimir Soloviev (1853-1900) as “one of the modern world’s great “witnesses of the faith and illustrious Christian thinkers”.  Writing before The Virgin Mary’s prophecy of the conversion of Russia, Soloviev foresaw that Russia was destined to play a great religious role in the modern world: “It is the historic destiny of Russia to provide the Universal Church with the political power which it requires for the salvation and regeneration of Europe and of the world.”

Product Description

Vladimir Soloviev
Kolbe’s Greatest Books Volume 87

According to Hans Urs von Balthasar, Soloviev provides “beyond question, the most profound vindication and the most comprehensive philosophical statement of the Christian totality in modern times”. Soloviev understood that the  “The distinctively religious character of the Russian people as well as the mystical tendency exhibited in our philosophy, our literature and our arts seem to indicate for Russia a great religious mission” in the modern world.” Arguing from an integral theological, philosophical and mystical perspective, Soloviev understood that:

“…if the faith communicated by the Church to Christian humanity is a living faith, and if the grace of the sacraments is an effectual grace, the resultant union of the divine and the human cannot be limited to the special domain of religion, but must extend to all Man’s common relationships and must regenerate and transform his social and political life.”
