      I meant that the Serbs "saved" us in the technical way rather than the
      eternal way.In the context I used it, the Serbians DID in fact save our
      church by their generosity and help. Much of my family was there in Belgrade
      when it happened (because Serbia was the only country that would accept them
      as refugees from Russia at that time during the revolution).

      Also, don't forget that Metropolitan Vitaly issued an ukaz stating that we
      pray for our brethren in Serbia in all of our services during the bombing in

      The instructions for the service and the text that was to be served at this
      time said the following:
      "At the augmented litany at the end of the moleben, after the petitions for
      the Episcopate, for Russia and for this Country, read the following:
      "Again we pray for the Orthodox Episcopate of the Church of Serbia, their
      clergy and flock, and for their salvation""
      S' Bogom,

      Dear Nina, these words seem a bit extreme and too much
      personal of an assertion : of course the Serbian
      Church helped us, gave asylum to thousands of families
      and clergy, supported our Church, but did not SAVE us.
      Our Lord saves only.
      If not for the Serbian Church, GOD only knows what
      would have happened to us. The rest is assumptions.
      In 1943, the USSR recognized the government of Tito,
      and at the end of WW II, the Serbian Church recognized
      the authority of the Russian Patriarch Serge (you can
      imagine under what pressure) but did not cut their
      links with our Church. That same Serbian Church who is
      participating to the ecumenist heresy via the
      Ecumenical Council of Churches, side by side with
      Moscow Patriarchate.
      Better to remain close to facts than to build
      assumptions fitting with the current stream.
      Valentina by the streams of Med. Sea.
