"Today the concept of truth is viewed with suspicion, because truth is identified with violence. Over history there have, unfortunately, been episodes when people sought to defend the truth with violence. But they are two contrasting realities. Truth cannot be imposed with means other than itself! Truth can only come with its own light. Yet, we need truth. ... Without truth we are blind in the world, we have no path to follow. The great gift of Christ was that He enabled us to see the face of God".Pope Benedict xvi, February 24th, 2012

The Church is ecumenical, catholic, God-human, ageless, and it is therefore a blasphemy—an unpardonable blasphemy against Christ and against the Holy Ghost—to turn the Church into a national institution, to narrow her down to petty, transient, time-bound aspirations and ways of doing things. Her purpose is beyond nationality, ecumenical, all-embracing: to unite all men in Christ, all without exception to nation or race or social strata. - St Justin Popovitch

Holy Hieromartyr Hilarion Solemnly Celebrated in Sretensky Monastery

On December 28, 2010, in the Moscow Sretensky Monastery was celebrated the feast day of its heavenly patron, Holy Hieromartyr Hilarion (Troitsky). With the blessing of His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia, Divine Liturgy was presided over by Archbishop Theognost of Sergiev Posad, Father Superior of the Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra. Archimandrite Tikhon and members of the Monastery clergy concelebrated, along with graduates of the Sretensky Theological Seminary, and other guests of the Monastery. After the Liturgy, Archbishop Theognost lead the prayer to Holy Hieromartyr Hilarion.
St. Hilarion's treatise on the Incarnation of God the Word was read at the meal in the refectory. After the meal, Archimandrite Tikhon thanked His Grace Theognost for serving the festal Liturgy in the monastery, and then presented the results of the students' photography contest. 186 photos were chosen out of the 746 submitted, from which five winners were chosen. The winners were awarded monetary prizes.
His Grace Theognost thanked Archimandrite Tikhon for his labors in building the Sretensky Monastery and its Theological Seminary. The Superior of the St. Sergius Lavra noted the brotherly relations amongst the seminarians, and wished them conscientious learning with special attention to the Holy Fathers, whose writings need to be studied now more than ever.
