Title: Babuske
Post by: Mimě on September 22, 2009, 11:42:22 AM
There is a common statement that during Communism women, especially the eldest called "babuske" (something like grannies) distinguished themselves as guardians of faith and traditions, in particular trough the upbringing of children that, otherwise, would have received no infos but those filtered by the regime. In particular st.Seraphim is said to have foreseen this important role played by mothers. Do you know anyhting about this?
