He also was one of the first to condemn ecumenism and it was largely under his influence that the MP condemned ecumenism in the 40's, after World War II, when he moved to...

A New Intercessor- Saint Austerberthe

Today I learned of a 7-8th century Orthodox saint from the region where our monastery is located, Haute Normandie. Our Venerable Mother Austreberthe, born around 630, embarked upon the monastic life at an early age. She was tonsured by Saint Omer (or Audomar), one of the enlighteners of this region,...

Re: Nun Agnia [Countess Anna Orlova-Chesmenskaya]

One of the early "Orthodox Word"s published by Platina featured a biography. I'll try to find it. There is a "life" in Russian as well.
