"Conversion of Russia" Update:
A Falling Plane and a Rising Empire

by Christopher A. Ferrara

The Tsar-like inauguration of Vladimir Putin in 2012. The blatant instrumentalization of the Russian Orthodox Church by the Putin regime. The rebuilding of the Russian military. The annexation of Crimea. The growing conflict in Ukraine. And now the shooting down of Flight MH 17, with Ukraine accusing Russian separatists of the crime and the Kremlin blaming the Ukraine government installed by allegedly US-backed revolutionaries.


Christopher A. Ferrara is an attorney specializing in First Amendment and other civil rights litigation on behalf of Catholics. His articles and commentary on Catholic Church affairs have appeared in The Latin Mass magazine, The Remnant, Christian Order, Catholic Family News, The Fatima Crusader magazine and elsewhere. He is co-author (with Thomas Woods) of The Great Facade, a widely acclaimed analysis of changes in the Church since Vatican II. He and his wife Wendy, a convert from Protestantism, have six children.

James W. Bannister was born in Toronto, Canada and earned degrees in Arts and Law from the University of Toronto. He practiced law in Canada for 12 years, then moved into business management consulting, training and teaching. Jim has taught and practiced the art of communication for nearly a quarter of a century, working in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia. He was a convert to Catholicism before Vatican II and is dedicated to restoring the Church to what it was when he was baptized. He has been working with Our Lady's Apostolate since 1990.
