Archbishop NIKON (Rklitsky)
"Our homeland represents the embodiment of the Gospel in the national character and national existence, as well as embodiment of the Heavenly Kingdom; our Russia is not only a legal entity or a state, no it is a universal, all-encompassing idea." so said the great hierarch of the Russian land, the most blessed Metropolitan Anthony on 5 October, 1904, on the day of the four saints of Moscow, warning Russia about the coming hardships.
These four saints Peter, Alexei, Jonah and Phillip were the spiritual creators of Russian history. And, if we carefully study the Russian historical processes we will be able to observe that at all stages in the life of Russia there were humble elders, bright geniuses of Russia, creators of Russian history.
