Akathist to St. John the Russian
« on: March 22, 2010, 08:52:34 PM »
Hi guys!

I'm not even sure if this is the right place to put or ask this (this particular sub-forum I mean), but I found this today:

http://akafist.narod.ru/I/Ioann_Russkiy.htm

Now, I've been praying/searching for something like this to print out and add to my personal prayer binder, but there's just one small problem:

It's in Russian.  My Google-toolbar translated -most- of it but not -all- of it.  So I am wondering if anyone knows where I might find this entirely in English please?   I would be most grateful for any help on this. :)

St. John's feast day is coming up in June, I'd love to have it so I can read it then. Not only that, but it would mean so much to have it for a Saint who has made a profoundly positive impact on my life.

Thanks again for reading :)
"If you leave me free in my religion, I will be very eager to carry out your commands. But if you try to force me to change my faith, I will first surrender my head. I was born a Christian and a Christian I shall die."

To the best of my knowledge, there is not one in English. Have you found one?
