Orthodox Saints & Patristic Church Fathers (209)
It is one of the great mysteries of life that in atmospheres of the harshest cruelty, a certain few not only survive but emerge as beacons of light and life. Father Arseny, former scholar of church art, became Prisoner No. 18736 in the brutal "special sector" of the Soviet prison camp system. In the darkness of systematic degradation of body and soul, he shone with the light of Christ`s peace and compassion. His sights set on God and his life grounded in the Church, Father Arseny lived by injunction to "bear one another`s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ" (Galatians 6:2).
