Orthodox Church of the "Sovereign" [derzhavnaia] Mother of God
« on: September 12, 2010, 07:33:57 PM »
I just read about this group today, and it seems to be a weird mixture of catacomb Orthodoxy, ecumenism and Roman Catholic Marian apparitions. It's also classified as a "destructive sect" (along with Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Pentecostals, etc.) in Russia. How much of a real presence does this group have?
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.
