New Hiero-confessor Leontius (Stasevich)

This issue of The Orthodox Word is dedicated to Archimandrite Leontius (Stasevich), a Russian monastic who was born in Poland and spent his life serving his flock in the Ivanovo region of Russia. He maintained his burning faith throughout all his trials under Soviet rule, which included intensive interrogations and several imprisonments, and even persecution at the hands of his fellow clergy. This Life is another of those painstakingly compiled from archival sources and eyewitness accounts by Abbot Damascene (Orlovsky) and published in his twelve-volume opus, The Lives of the New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia of the Twentieth Century.

The issue concludes with a review of the recent critically acclaimed film Man of God, the story of the life of St. Nektarios of Aegina.
