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


Opening of the 5th Seal

Revelation 6:9-17 King James Version (KJV)

And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

According to Archbishop Averky's book, the "fellowservants" will be the ones who are killed for refusing to take the mark of the beast.

To be killed for not taking the mark will be welcomed, because those left alive who do not take the mark of the beast will not be able to buy and sell, and, according to St. Andrew of Caesarea, these will die "a violent death for want of necessities."
