St. Nikolai of Zhicha Murdered?
« on: May 02, 2011, 10:35:05 PM »
I'm reading a book in which it is suggested that St. Nikolai of Zhicha was murdered.  Has anyone else heard of this?

An unknown Serbian immigrant who was once a communist but who had become close to St. Nikolai.  The book I'm reading says that St. Nikolai was found "poisoned" and with an "open wound on his head"

Is a copy of the book online?

Or could you kindly give the title, author, publisher and date of publication?
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

The Mystery of the Wonder-Worker of Ostrog, Protopresbyter Radomir and Vesna Nikechevik, Svetigora, 2003.

It can be found on several Orthodox sites, including where I got it from, St. Herman.

If it's true ,That terrible..Communist did give Holy Orthodoxy Quite a lot of Martyrs,and Martyr Saints.....
Im sure St.Nikolaj forgave him, and is praying for his conversion and salvation in heaven....... :police:

With the way science has advanced ,And if his relics are intacked, couldn't the church allow his relics to be tested for pioson and x ray the scull to find out if he died of natural causes or was done in and to finally lay suspicions to rest ..... :police:
