In an effort to reach our financial goal of $10,000 we will be absent from posting and working behind the scenes until the goal is met.

The Relic of Fr. George Calciu the Confessor Found Incorrupt

At Petru-Voda Monastery in Romania, according to the specific rubric observed by our Church, the Service of Exhumation took place for Fr. George Calciu Dumitreasa, for the completion of seven years since his repose (+ November 21, 2006). His relic was found incorrupt, thus affirming the sanctity of his life.

He lived through the peak of the brutality of communism, when Christians were imprisoned and tortured in the most inhumane way. He went through torture that the common human mind cannot comprehend. He was hideously tortured, kept in the dark and cold, mocked, terrorized, and saw his comrades die one by one.

He showed incredible courage, a courage bordering on foolishness, a foolishness for Christ. He understood that this was a battle between God and Satan, and he was fighting for something he considered essential: the Church, the Faith, human dignity and freedom.
