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



Back issues of The Orthodox Word #1 through #107, up to Fr. Seraphim's repose, are shared with friends on a private blog.  For an invitation to access the blog, email me:


Platina has the legal copyrights to much of Fr. Seraphim's materials, but they abuse those rights by withholding or censoring Fr. Seraphim's works for political and deceptive reasons.

Fr. Seraphim published his magazines and books for future generations.  He never intended for world-orthodoxy to have the power to suppress or "renovate" his materials.

Fr. Seraphim's original works are now SAMIZDAT.

Samizdat (Russian: самизда́т; IPA: [səmɨzˈdat]) was a key form of dissident activity across the Soviet bloc in which individuals reproduced censored publications by hand and passed the documents from reader to reader.  This grassroots practice to evade officially imposed censorship was fraught with danger as harsh punishments were meted out to people caught possessing or copying censored materials.
