"The glory of God is in man fully alive."

'During the meeting [between Patriarch Cyril, Governor Sergey M. Darkin of Primorye, and Archbishop Benjamin of Vladivostok] the status of church life and church-state relations in Primorye were also discussed. Archbishop Benjamin appealed to His Holiness Patriarch Cyril to form from the Eparchy of Vladivostok and the Maritimes two [new] eparchies.'

I feel like I read somewhere recently that less than half of Siberia and the Russian Far East identifies as Orthodox now, but this discusses how well the Church in Primorye (the Maritime/Primorskiy Territory) is doing vis-a-vis engaging with community organizations and the youth...

"This is the Apostolic Faith, the Orthodox Faith, and the Faith of the Fathers. Having this wonderful treasure, let us preserve it, let us keep it, and let us also use it in such a way that this treasure becomes the victory of Christ in us and in His Church." ~ St. Severus of Antioch ~
