Nat’l Geo Article in April Issue

Sent by a friend who shares St. Patrick’s name!

Enjoy this article and photos on the Russian Orthodox Church.  It was written by Fr. Alexander Schmemann’s son, Serge, who I would suggest read his father’s diaries.

I love the photo of the great schema monk.

    I must admit that I was disappointed by the negativity in the article. Schmemann had a good opportunity to witness to Orthodoxy; instead, he chose an almost exclusively Western approach, which is sure to elicit a spate of letters from people who think our form of worship is all “empty ritual.” Very disappointing.

    thanks for this! i felt that it goes into a lot of the changes that I am aware of in Russia (mostly aware by talking to one of my friends from church…)
