New Martyrs from Optina

There is an excellent account of three Monk Martyrs of Optina Monastery in Russia on the website of Handmaidleah. She is a frequent visitor to this blog, always with insightful comments. Her account of these new saints is well worth a read. Her blog, Christ is in our Midst is on the blogroll here at Glory to God for All Things.

    Fr. Stephen,
    You are far too kind. Yet I thank you just the same.

    Fr. Stephen I just had an odd thought, do you remember when you posted the words to How Can I Keep From Singing? I forgot that I have that song on my YouTube video from Spruce island, odd that I should think of that, it is the second tune I put on that video…
    For those who want to hear the song sung by the students at St. Innocent’s Academy in Kodiak Alaska here is the link:

    In Christ,
    Mary-Leah
