Vladimir Soloviev, prophet of Russia's conversion
The life and works of Vladimir Soloviev are a perfect illustration of this truth of Fatima. He whom our Father regards as « the greatest Russian genius of the 19th century », was in his own way a prophet of the “ conversion ” of his beloved Country, announcing the necessity of her returning to the bosom of the Roman Church.
The Immaculate Conception and the Divine Sophia
Fathers of the Church, theologians and poets have vied with one another to acclaim in Mary the perfect ideal of the Wisdom of God. The 19th century Russian philosopher, Soloviev, contemplates the Wisdom of God at work in history, creating a mysterious harmony that he calls Sophia, Virgin, Spouse and Mother, the Immaculate Conception.
