There is also much ignorance of basic Christian faith in the old world and that is why it does not survive in the new world by immigrants from old world Orthodox nations. He may be loved by those of the cloth & is largely unknown by most laity.

my own experiences in Greece and Serbia say otherwise, and first-hand stories I've heard from many others regarding other countries. I'm sure clergy are more aware of him, but the pious laity are as well. Bp. Daniil said that after Communism fell in Bulgaria he found that amongst those who were returning to the Church (or entering for the first time) Fr. Seraphim was very popular. Just online you can find many blogs and other websites with info on him from Romania, Greece, Serbia, Bulgaria, Russia, Georgia, etc.

Well I hope your right. God bless.

its really only in America where he is controversial. He is widely loved and venerated in Orthodox countries.
In Bulgaria, he is extremely controversial.
Our Metropolitan seems to like him and thinks Platina is wonderful.

In Christ,
