Paper Back New One of the sick men told him that his name was Sazikov. Father Arseny prayed quietly while he was helping him. Sazikov noticed it and mumbled, you're praying, ... eh, Priest? ! You pray to get forgiveness of your sins and this is why you help us! You're afraid of God! Why's that? Have you ever seen Him? Father Arseny looked at Sazikov with surprise. How could I not have seen Him? He is here among us and unites you and me! What are you saying, Pop? God is in this barracks? he laughed. Father Arseny looked at him and said quietly, Yes, I see His presence. I see that your soul is black with sin, but there is room in it for light. Light will come to you Sazikov, light and your Saint, Saint Seraphim of Sarov will not abandon you. Sazikov's face distorted, he trembled and whispered with hatred, I'll kill you, silly priest, I'll kill you...I hate the way you think. Father Arseny turned around and walked away repeating, Have mercy on me, a sinner! Sazikov, a hardened criminal, Fr. Arseny, an eminent Read more Show Less

Overview

It is one of the great mysteries of life that in atmospheres of the harshest cruelty, a certain few not only survive but emerge as beacons of light and life. Father Arseny, former scholar of church art, became Prisoner No. 18376 in the brutal "special sector" of the Soviet prison camp system. In the darkness of systematic degradation of body and soul, he shone with the light of Christ's peace and compassion. This narrative, compiled from accounts of Father Arseny's spiritual children and others whom he brought to God, gives stirring glimpses of his life in prison camp and after his release. It also tells the stories of people whose lives, often during times of almost unimaginable crisis, were touched and transfigured through their connection with Father Arseny.

    Father Arseny-The ultimate test of faith

    The book "Father Arseny" is a story of a priest's ultimate test of faith during the years of World War II. Father Arseny is an Orthodox Christian priest and hiromonk who lived in Soviet Russia. A large portion of his life was spent in Prison Camps, or in Exile for being an "Enemy of the People". Father Arseny, when in camps, surprises people, well educated and criminal alike, by explaining to them that he is the well known Piotr Andreyevich Streltzov. "Famous art historian, author of many books and articals, teacher of many, a famous professor" who seemed to have dissappeared, but became a priest. This book is truly a book to read whether you are ten or a hundred and ten, whenever you pick it up, you will not put it down until the book is finished.
