  4. Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna of Russia:

    If we look deep into the life of every human, we discover that it is full of miracles. You will say, Of terror and death, as well. Yes, that also. But we do not clearly see why the blood of these victims must flow. There, in the heavens, they understand everything and, no doubt, have found calm and the Truer Homeland -- a heavenly Homeland. We on this earth must look to that Heavenly Homeland with understanding and say with resignation, Thy will be done. Completely destroyed now is the Great Russia without fear or reproach, but Holy Russia, the Orthodox Church, the Church against which the gates of hell shall not prevail, exists and exists as never before; and those who believe, who have no doubts, have an inner sun that illuminates the darkness of the thundering storm.

  5. Shevi Rosner:

    Because so many in the Orthodox community don't use internet and television.
