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


In Memory of Br. Isaac

in deep gratitude for his service to our Church

Br. Isaac did much translating of English Services and also he composed many services.  His menaion translations have been subjected to copyright abuse by certain people (some aware, others unaware) in world Orthodoxy.  I know from what Fr. Gregory told me that in his last years (as the internet increased) Br. Isaac's health declined progressively.  He also suffered with extreme financial difficulty because of medical bills.  

Two things I can share without trespassing on his copyrights:

Translated: Russian History of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church 
This was an SJKP "book in progress", Br. Isaac did not have a chance to answer the lacunae text questions.  The intention at the time was to offer this book as a "print on demand".

Composed: Service to St. Philaret – Matins Canon 
Before the ROCOR-MP union Br. Isaac was given a blessing by Bp. Hilarion to compose a service to St. Philaret.  The service was never made official by the Laurus Synod (surprised?).
