      The pastor who taught me to pray

      Exactly one year ago, August 4, 2003, died Metropolitan Anthony of
      Sourozh, one of the most prominent clerics of the Russian Orthodox
      Church in the twentieth century. Anthony of Sourozh lived and served
      in London, in the Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos.

      A group of St. Petersburg cinematographers, led by director Valentina
      Matveyeva, is preparing to release a film, "The life and death of
      Anthony of Sourozh".

      [The report continues with extensive quotes from the Archbishop of
      Canterbury, Rowan Williams, who expresses the view that at one
      time "Metropolitan Anthony played the most significant role in all of
      Christianity, and not just in the Orthodox Church in Great Britain."]
