On Sunday, May 9/22, 2022, we laid to rest the First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church abroad, Metropolitan +HILARION of Eastern America & New York, with whose blessing our books have been published for the last 14 years.
In the week that has passed since his repose, we’ve published archival materials in his memory here at Orthodox Life and a full archive of historical posts is available here.
This week, we’re also reading short excerpts from one of our recent publications that exemplify Vladyka’s pastoral care and love for his flock on our daily podcast.
Metropolitan Hilarion and the Russo-Chinese Orthodox Mission (pp. 297 — 298)
Metropolitan Hilarion and the Queensland Expedition (pp. 314 — 315)
The Election of Metropolitan Hilarion as First Hierarch (pp. 326 — 327)
These readings are taken from:
The History of the Russian Church in Australia:
From Siberia to Sydney,
by Archpriest Michael A. Protopopov
Available in print and digital form, wherever books are sold.
