[orthodox-synod] Tsar Martyr Nikolai
- How wonderfully different from worldly models is the example
we see in the tsar marytr Nikolaj, despite any imperfections as
man and autocrat.
Under the stress of persecution he drew closer to Orthodoxy.
He did not cling to power nor shed blood for personal gain.
He drew closer to the gospel teachings of our Saviour...turning
the other cheek, leading his family in prayer.
Foolish Peter tries to keep this example in mind in the face of
our ever more secular society, ever more violent, ever bolder in
shame and ever more intolerant of piety!
