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


Ungodliness of Islam

New Martyrs of the Turkish Yoke
Matins: last stichos on Praises
June Menaion p. 376

  O newly assembled choir of three choruses, composed of hieromartyrs, martyred monastics and martyrs!
  Who can praise your passion-bearing struggles worthily?
  For at various times and in divers places, ye all armed yourselfves against the selfsame ungodliness of Islam,
and endured mutifarious tortures. 
  Together in the heavens, pray ye that we be saved.
