The tragic martyrdom of Tsar Nicholas, his family, and all intimately related to him was the signal wave of an in-rushing tide of barbarous secularism that would sweep over Holy Russia in the years after Ekaterinburg.

Satan is here. Men chose to murder the Tsar; and, today, men rush to crush holy foundations. They set the stage for horrors to follow.
