Catholic Christmas in Russia

RussiaToday offers us a glimpse of how Catholics celebrate Christmas in Orthodox Russia:



I must admit, seeing the Novus Ordo celebrated in Russian (even if only for a few seconds) is quite... unnerving.

Below is a picture of the Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Moscow; I am surprised that almost every book on the Russian capital I've read neglects to mention this fine Gothic building.

I am also thoroughly disturbed by this footage of the Christmas celebration in Moscow.

Novus Ordo out of Russia! NOW!

Why? There are Orthodox churches in Rome.

Well, realistically, I say that we should toss out the Novus Ordo entirely, but that may be a bit too extreme for some. So, to curb any sort of radical tendencies, let's start small and merely kick the Novus Ordo out of Russia. What do you say, Josephus Flavius?
