After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY


Attack on Parish in Russia

From metropolitan Agafangel's website:-
Our Protection of the Theotokos parish in Russian Federation (Leningrad Region. Volkhovsky district, vil. Dudachkino, rector Fr Alexander Sukhov) was attacked: officials in the amount of about 20 people, headed by the Prosecutor of the Volkhov city Isakovsky V.V., police, government representatives (including a land surveyor), searched all the church premises for the five long hours without any explanation of their actions and threatened to take away community's land. Our parish is not registered as a religious organization, but is accounted by local authorities as a religious group. Father Alexander was also asked, without a written summons, to appear in the prosecutor's office tomorrow, October 21, 2011.
Asking your pray for the priest Alexander and his parishioners.
