  1. I don’t believe St. Francis was pre-schism. How wonderful that he was instrumental in Father Seraphim’s journey. This might not be very Orthodox, but I find a lot of Catholic Saints to be very inspiring.

    According to Wikipedia, his dates are September 26, 1181 or 1182 – October 3, 1226, so not that far after the schism.

  2. Ladies, I did not get the impression that MG was leaning towards Orthodoxy. Wasn’t St. Francis pre-schism? If so, then there is no issue, is there?

    I know that it was St. Francis who was very instrumental in leading my spiritual big brother, Fr. Seraphim, to Orthodox monasticism. 🙂

    None the less, I was very pleased re: MG.

  3. I agree, Mimi, it does give that impression. Who knows, maybe he is, which would be a pity — OTOH, I guess if that’s what works for him, the important thing is that he believes in God and practices his faith. But I do hope he hasn’t turned his back on Orthodoxy, which is inconceivable to me. 😉

    Philippa, thanks so much for posting this — I had no idea of this article! I always liked Gorby, myself!

  4. That’s neat. I guess it was an open secret, I always knew he was at least sympathetic.

    But that article kind of gives the impression he’s Roman Catholic, does it not?
