Learn from the Lord: An Exhortation to Newly-tonsured Monks

On the eve of June 28th, 2016 (o.s.), the feast of the Holy Venerable Fathers Sergius and Herman of Valaam, the abbot of Hoy Trinity Monastery Archimandrite Luke tonsured a monk into the lesser schema and a novice into the rank of rassaphore monk. Following the tonsures, Fr Luke greeted the new monks with this short exhortation.
