"Dans la confusion de notre époque quand une centaine de voix contradictoires prétend parler au nom l'Orthodoxie, il est essentiel de savoir à qui l'on peut faire confiance. Il ne suffit pas de prétendre parler au nom de l'Orthodoxie patristique, il faut être dans la pure tradition des saints Pères ... "

'It is hardly to doubt that Vladyka manifestly pleased God by his truly ascetic life and struggle of prayer. It is worthy of attention that when we served his funeral on the sixth day (for various reasons I was long delayed en route, and they waited a long time for the funeral on Thursday, at six o'clock in the evening), his coffin stood open. Not only were there no signs of bodily decomposition whatsoever, but Vladyka lay as one sleeping; his hands had their usual appearance and color and were soft and warm... his incorruption was obvious' (from a letter of Metropolitan Philaret)

In accord with the elevated mood the hierarchal Gospel reading proclaims: 'I am the good Shepherd, and know My sheep, and am known of Mine... and I lay down My life for the sheep.'
