Sister Vassa (Larin), ” I also Experienced, Together With My Church, the Very Unique Changes We Underwent”

Conducted by Deacon Andrei Psarev

Vienna, September 25, 2014

I find myself still processing this immense transition, and learning from it. I now cross paths with other Orthodox jurisdictions on a regular basis, and am often very impressed by the vibrant church-life that I observe there. This kind of capacity to change, demonstrated by our Church in recent years, is very unique in the history of church divisions, and I am grateful to be part of it.

Archbishop Mark

London July 16, 2014

Of course, we should follow what’s going on in Russia, the Church and the society. But first and foremost, we should be concerned with matters of our own salvation and of the faithful around us.

Invariably the “Russianness,” is Going to Dissipate With Every Congregation

Alena Kozhevnikova

Rye, Sussex July 11, 2014

Mind you, I used to annoy some of my colleagues in another job I had. They'd say something about God, and I'd say, "Of course God speaks Church Slavonic. He's a Russian." But when you look at it, it's ridiculous.

“Святитель Иоанн не шёл на компромиссы, ни с самим собой, ни с ситуациями”

Мария Решетникова, беседовал диакон Андрей Псарев

Джорданвилл, Н.Й. 24 мая, 2014 г.

“St. John Didn’t go in for Compromises, Neither With Himself Nor With situations”

Первые восемь лет я купалась в эйфории, в Белой эмиграции, и это оправдано, потому что я открыла для себя новую историю, которой в Советском Союзе не было. Потом понадобилось ещё пять лет последних, чтобы понять, что своего рода идеология существует по обе стороны баррикад, и истинная история произошедшего после 17-го года или даже начиная с начала века, в Первую Мировую войну, и что касается предательства царя и т.д., - лежит посередине.

“St. John Didn’t go in for Compromises, Neither With Himself Nor With situations”

Maria Reshetnikova, Conducted by Deacon Andrei

Jordanville, NY May 24, 2014

For the first eight years [of my immigration] I was bathed in euphoria in the White emigration. And this was justified, because I'd opened up a new story for myself, which did not exist in the Soviet Union. It took me five more years to understand that my kind of ideology exists on both sides of the barricade, and the true history of what's come to pass since the 1700's, or even since the beginning of the [last] century, in the First World War, and of what the betrayal of the Tsar means, etc. -- the true history lies somewhere in the middle.
