Re: St Feofil of the Kiev Caves

Tonight being the exact same night as the catastrophic event described here, I thought to post this example of St Feofil's prescient warning to Met Philaret of Kiev : Soon after this, Vladika was again in Kitayev and, meeting Feofil in the monastery courtyard, stopped him and said: "Well, misc...

Re: The YMCA & Russian Emigration: Halloween Trick - or genuine treat ?

I never liked Nikolai Berdyaev, even the name makes me feel uncomfortable. I never knew much about him except that he was a big liberal. Having read that he wrote fiery accusations against ROCOR probably at the bidding of his YMCA cronies, I began to wonder who he was. Probably readers of this site...

But still carried on the pre-revolutionary endeavors, whether for good or for ill. Tomorrow being the anniversary of the dreadful Bolshevik Revolutio...
