To the Editors:
The article titled “Walking for the Tsar” (July/Aug 2009) is well written and informative, as Russian Life articles usually are. However, several times in your magazine we see the expression “Romanov worship.” This is even on the cover! Orthodox Christians do not worship the Romanovs (or the Mother of God, or saints, or relics). Worship is reserved for God alone, and the Romanovs, as saints, are VENERATED. There is a difference.
