... is the same thing as Christianity. These two words have the same meaning. Hatred against Christ and His followers should not surprise us. It is natural, it was foretold by the Lord Himself, Who said: “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you” ( John 15: 18 ) . Today we celebrate the memory of the Holy New Martyrs and Confessors of the Russian land. These are all the multitude of bishops, priests, monks, nuns, laymen, laywomen, and children who were killed or suffered gravely because of their faith and their refusal to compromise their faith, to cooperate with the new revolutionary government, or to renounce their faith in Christ. The experience of each and every one of these martyrs and confessors was unique. Even if their manner of death or suffering was similar in many cases, each of them brought with them to that moment of confession or martyrdom a unique soul, a unique set of experiences and circumstances. If we were to enter into the mind and heart of each one of these saints and observe the unique way in which they experienced their suffering and the knowledge of their coming martyrdom, we would see a wondrous tapestry of ... далее ...

... and Sacraments—at the price of certain “deals” with the authorities, or should we choose the path of uncompromising, but possibly unknown and as if fruitless confession of faith? In search of the answer people in the Church have, willfully or unwittingly, separated into various camps and groups—the “disagreed”, and the “Sergianists”, just as now we like to separate into “conservatives” and “liberals”… “I am of Paul, I am of Apollos…” These questions are relevant also now, only they sound a little different: Who are we? The “reigning” Church or the persecuted Church; the Church of the New Martyrs or the Church that “speaks to the world in its own language”; the Church of power and influence or the Church of weak earthen vessels that bear within the immortal treasure of the Spirit? [7] Will we inherit the experience of New Martyrs—the experience of simplicity and poverty of spirit—or will we try to produce the same relationship between Church and society that was characteristic of the “Constantinople” period, when Christianity was welcomed and supported by external powers, but with a lower spiritual degree? I think that the true answer lies in following Christ. ... далее ...

... is the memory of the holy new martyrs so dear to us? How did they so please God that we hymn their lives as a true example for the faithful? We do not honor the new martyrs because they suffered. Everyone suffers, and we also suffer. We suffer because our lives turn out different from what we want them to be; we are hurting because others do not value us enough; we are tortured by our own passions and are in pain from the wounds that we inflict on ourselves by our own lack of physical and spiritual self-control. Romeo and Juliet, they also suffered—for there never was a story of more woe… Beloved in Christ brothers, sisters, and children, Today we have been honored to be concelebrants and fellow communicants in the Divine Liturgy—the great Sacrament of the Body and Blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This day is especially notable for us because today we celebrate our parish feast—the memory of the holy new martyrs and confessors of Russia. From the earliest times of the Church, Christians gathered on the days of the memory of martyrs for the breaking of bread—participation in the sacred Eucharist; and today, the Lord granted us this great gift.

Could you comment on the work of the meeting and its results? What is the prehistory of this conference, and why exactly did Archimandrite Tikhon (Shevkunov) , Archpriest Maxim Kozlov and you participate in it on the part of the Moscow Patriarchate? Archpriest Georgy Mitrofanov Archpriest Georgy Mitrofanov. – The All-Diaspora pastoral conference, held on December 8-12, 2003, in Nyack, may be regarded in a certain way as an epoch-making event in the history of the relationship of the Russian Orthodox Church in Russia and the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. For the first time after many decades of sharp controversy representatives of these two parts of – I am sure of it – one Church had a chance to meet each other and discuss looking into each other’s eyes many acute and sore points.

... by certain ill-informed members of the Church Outside Russia, the Elder said, touching his hump: " We are accused of co-operating with the KGB, well, here is the sign of my co-operation with them. " Clearly, the Elder was referring to politically-minded or simply ignorant members of the Church Outside Russia, who without discernment, lumped all members of the Patriarchal Church, people like Elder Zosima and Metropolitan Philaret of Kiev and modernists and ecumenists, together. These were the very people whom Metropolitan Philaret of the Church Outside Russia, who canonized the New Martyrs and Confessors who finally freed Russia, rebuked in 1981, in the resolution concerning the holy Elder Tavrion of Riga. Seeing their failure, the KGB next tried a familiar tactic, tried so often in other parts of the Russian Church and at other points in its history. This was to send Fr. Sabbatius off to different parishes in out of the way places, in fact exiling him. Thus, in 1985 and 1986 he served in three different parishes. But those faithful to him always sought him out and found him, as is the way of things. The Elder A few days before the fall of the Berlin Wall, on 22 ... далее ...

... walls of the cathedral. February 9, 2014 On Sunday, February 9, the Russian Orthodox Church celebrated the memory of the Holy New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia—those who met their death during the Soviet period at the hands of atheists, or more exactly anti-theists —people who “war against God”. As Orthodox Christians not only in Russia but around the globe attended services and sang the praises of these righteous ones of the comparatively recent past, little did they suspect that two more Russians Orthodox Christians in the Russian far east would die that day, in a way that can only be called martyric. Who were these two martyrs, and what motivated the young man whom everyone described as an ordinary Russian guy, indistinguishable from anyone else in the church until he opened fire on the worshippers assembled there? Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, or South Sakhalinsk, is the largest city on Sakhalin Island in the Russian Far East. The climate is very cold in the winter, with moderate, foggy summers.

Two years later, in June of 1998, the relics of the remaining Elders were uncovered (except those of Elder Nikon, who reposed in exile in the far north, and those of Archimandrite Isaac [Bobrikov], who was executed by the Communists and whose relics have not been found) and later that year placed in the newly rebuilt Optina Church of the Vladimir Icon of the Theotokos. Finally, on August 7, 2000, in connection with the glorification of the New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia, all the Optina Elders were universally canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church in the newly rebuilt Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. From the introduction to Elder Leonid of Optina, ( St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood, 2002 ) The Prayer of the Optina Elders Besides the written Lives, and the many letters of spiritual instruction, a beautiful and powerful prayer was left to us by the holy elders of Optina.

... key event in the history of the Church in the 20th century that marked the end of " Synodal era " , which lasted since Peter I, was the National council of the Russian Orthodox Church that opened on August 28, 1917 and lasted off and on till September 7, 1918. It reestablished the Patriarchate and the ancient tradition of regular Councils as the supreme bodies of ecclesiastical authority. The authority of Patriarch Tikhon (Bellavin) , formerly Metropolitan of Moscow, elected by the Council on November 18, 1917, would strengthen Church unity and help preserve the rich Russian moral and cultural heritage for future ages. Patriarch Tikhon started his road to Calvary in the Kremlin Dormition Cathedral. At that time the central drum of the cathedral’s five domes gaped with a shapeless breach—it was a bad sign, but the Patriarch did not change the ancient place of enthronement. He walked firmly along the Kremlin yard, and the believers looked at the long awaited protector of the Church with great hope. They thought that during the time of troubles the Patriarch’s authority would strengthen Church unity and infuse a fresh spiritual impetus into the religious life of ... далее ...

... between sanctity and temptation, our New Martyrs represented an example of personal victory over sin. If not, if they were liable to this sins themselves, then God would not honor them by shedding their blood for Him, He wouldn’t have crowned them with a martyr’s crown. We make sure of it again and again while studying the lives of each of the New Martyrs and the biographies of those people who were in enmity with them. Everyone who exemplified weakness betrayed the Church, the Tsar, and the Motherland, collaborated with Bolsheviks, or left into different schisms and dissents. The New Martyrs presented us an example of great love, love for God and for the people. How did they love God? First, it was displayed in their prayer, in the divine services. We constantly call upon all of you to offer up morning and evening prayers. But could you read these prayers from beginning to the end without a prayer book, by heart? And what if we would happen to be imprisoned, and we’d have no books? Some of you answer – we would read the Jesus Prayer. Yes, that is certainly a way out.

... June 2015 It may be that they held many grievances against the foreigners and their various “missionaries”, who were not always innocent of worldly ambitions and self-serving considerations. But the small Orthodox Church of China, the holy offspring of the Russian missionary zeal of older times, had shown and proved from early on that its concern and task was exclusively preaching and spreading the Kingdom of God, and not the “religious” support of political and other vain and reprehensible expediencies. So, even if others had given cause for suspicion and complaint, the Orthodox merely preached Christ crucified and nothing else. Compared to the “ant-hills” of Buddhists, Confucians and Taoists, the other presence was a drop in the ocean. Despite that, this “drop” was unbearably irritating for the Boxers and they could not stand that it worked on the eyes of their souls like ointment, sharpening their spiritual activity so that they could make out the light of true knowledge of God. So they determined to dry it up: with the fire of persecution; with the horrible tempest of violence; in any and every way. Almost all the churches were torched.
