To Mr PennyPincher - on Church Adornment
I particularly liked this line:

"If the body consumes both the spiritual and the physical food, what will the soul feed on then? Have you not heard how the godless people in Moscow have turned everything into bread, ate it and now they hunger - and they hunger now like Russia has not hungered since the times of Askold and Dir"

Our country is confronting many uncertainties.
