THE DIARY OF A RUSSIAN PRIEST

Author: ALEXANDER ELCHANINOV #: 10189
Alexander Elchaninov, one of the most gifted priests of the Russian emigration, died from a tragic illness in 1934, at the age of fifty-three. In his early years he was involved in the cultural and religious movements which transformed the country`s literature and art during the period 1900-1910. He was ordained comparatively late in life, after passing through the harrowing experience of the 1917 revolution. While deeply rooted in the spiritual and ascetic tradition of the Orthodox Church, Father Alexander remained close to the intellectual movement of his day.

FATHER ARSENY, 1893-1973: PRIEST, PRISONER, SPIRITUAL FATHER

Author: #: 10191
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).
