Russian Orthodoxy and the Romanovs

During the last centuries the destiny of the russian Orthodoxy was very linked with that of the Romanovs.The father of the first Romanov who reigned was a patriarch, Peter I abolished the organization of the Church and preferred the so called Procurator of the Holy Synod, The Patriarchy was re-established after the fall of Nicholas II,in exile the Russian Orthodoxy remained faithful to the Imperial House.
How do you see this link beween the Russian Orthodoxy and the Imperial House in the history and today?

Of course,Russian Orthodoxy had a great importance during the Romanovs' reign and previous one,it was a very strong relation between Church and State,just like it was Catholic one for other historical kingdoms.But after the revolution in 1917,Church lost its importance and privileges,it 's a separate page if we take the Russian Orthodox Church separately.
In present times,the Orthodox Church is very important and it's the most important religion,but there is no direct relation between Church and state.After the Canonization of the last Tsar and his family,Church contributed to the restauration of historical values of Romanovs.
Recently there was information that GD Maria Vladimirovna would like to be the ambassador of Russia or Russian Orthodox Church in Vatican,but I am not sure about her role now.

Grand Duchess Maria paid a visit to Pope Benedict XVI but I do not know if she wants to be involved in the catholic-orthodox dialogue.
During the communism only the Russian Orthodox Church from abroad sustained the Romanovs while the russian Orthodox Church ,after many persecutions, accepted a sort of "modus vivendi" with the bolshevics.

Pope Benedict XVI uses to receive members of the Royal Families reigning or not.Patriarch Kyrill would not accept to be represented in fron of the Pope by somebody else than a Bishop.
Grand Duchess Maria would not be able to solve the difficulties between the Holy See and the Russian Orthodox Church (especially the problem of the relations in Ukraine between greek-catholics and orthodox).

Yes I know the pope receives reigning (or not reigning) monarchs....and I understand that she would have nothing to do with repairing relations between the East and West ...it's a pretty complex divide.

Perhaps she just met with the pope out of courtesy/respect.

The Russian Orthodox Church has got its diplomats, who do not need extra help.

I suppose it was just a normal audience but surely she had inform before Patriarch Kyrill.She seems to be orthodox but quite ecumenical.

Why should she?
Besides, she resides in Spain, not in Moscow.

Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna is very faithful and she would have never done a gesture of this importance without the advice of Patriarch Kirill.

Are you an insider, Cory?
You are making the statements 'carved in stone' without any proof this evening.
Either you are a member of the 'imperial court', or you are making allegations, which are forbidden at TRF.

I pass over your irony ( it is not for the first time)...
From all her appearances it is obvious Grand Duchess Maria is a very faithful orthodox and that's not a secret for anybody.
On the other hand she went there with the blessing of the patriarch:

I have read the posts, well the interesting ones.

This thread, which you created, is entitled Russian Orthodoxy and the Romanovs not Russian Orthodoxy and (pretender to the throne) Grand Duchess Maria.

I would be quite interested in the topic if some one could provide some information about the links to the church that Alexandra, Nicholas, the children, Alexander II & III had.

Now 6 members of the Imperial Family are considered Saints:Nicholas II, Empress Alexandra, the 5 children of the couple and Grand Duchess Elisabeta Feodorovna (widow of Grand Duke Serge).

Their standard for saints doesn't seem to have a measure, except death.
