Spiritual Flowerbed #5 Reverend Amvrosy of the Optina Monastery 2006-11-30 (Christian Message From Moscow)

Voice of Russia World Service presents another edition of its program the "Spiritual Flowerbed" an addition to its regular feature, The Christian Message From Moscow.

By Tatyana Shvetsova

Approximately 300 kilometres to the south of Moscow, in the Kaluga region, beside the virgin pine woods and the river Zhyzdra, there stands the ancient Russian Orthodox monastery - Optina Pustyn. It went down in the history of Russian Orthodox Church as one of the centres of spiritual renaissance that emerged in Russia in late 18th early 19th century. That spiritual renaissance was intertwined with the lives of the elders of Optina Pustyn who gave spiritual advice to Orthodox believers coming to them from all over Russia.

Read the full text "Spiritual Flowerbed. Reverend Amvrosy of the Optina Monastery" at the Voice of Russia website.
