Don't believe it when Platina tries to say that Fr. Seraphim became "soft" towards the end of his life and started moving towards world Orthodoxy. Here is his last issue in 1982 –– he is just as "firm" and uncompromising of the Truth as he was in 1965. The only "softening" he did was to grieve more in his heart for the poor people stuck in world-orthodoxy.
