This is a nice story. He should write a book on his life. I bet it would contain some awesome history and theology.

Fr. Elias Wen

It may be a bit difficult for Fr. Elias to write his autobiography on his own at this advanced stage of his life due to failing eyesight, but it would be wonderful if someone collected all the anecdotes about him and also sought out any of his written sermons to put into book form along with anecdotes and biographical details.  

I read of Fr. Elias Wen years ago.  I had no idea he was still living and had reached such a ripe old age.  May God grant his faithful servant, the Protopresbyter Elias, long life, health, salvation, and many, many more blessed years!!!

Many years Father Elias!

There's a beautiful photo-essay book (about 65 pages) of the ROCOR cathedral in San Francisco's anniversary (put out in 2001 or so), and it has photos of Father Elias - I'm pretty sure he served with St John of Shanghai when they were in China and again in America.

It's a wonderful book for anyone who's interested in the church in San Francisco, Orthodox Church architecture, Saint John Maximovitch, and the Russian Orthodox emigre history.  I bought it for $29 by contacting the Holy Virgin Cathedral Bookstore in San Francisco.
