Saint Anton, pray for us!

According to Wikipedia he died in 1811. This was the same year Russia took over the Church of Georgia and suppressed Georgian forms of worship. Was St. Anton martyred at the hands of his fellow Orthodox?  Cry

"Wondrous is God in His Saints, the God of Israel!"

"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 ~

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.
