"On August 21, 1903, as poor monks were receiving alms at the gates of St. Panteleimon Monastery, Monk Gabriel took a photograph. When the photograph was developed the image of the Mother of God appeared miraculously to the left of the picture, humbly receiving a blessed crust of bread. Not long before, several brothers had clearly seen the Holy Virgin amongst the monks at the gate and wanted to tell the gatekeepers about it, but on the day the picture was taken no one had seen Her." (From the Monastery chronicle)

The Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii Collection

http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/prok/

Quote
The Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii Collection features color photographic surveys of the vast Russian Empire made between ca. 1905 and 1915. Frequent subjects among the 2,607 distinct images include people, religious architecture, historic sites, industry and agriculture, public works construction, scenes along water and railway transportation routes, and views of villages and cities. An active photographer and scientist, Prokudin-Gorskii (1863-1944) undertook most of his ambitious color documentary project from 1909 to 1915. The Library of Congress purchased the collection from the photographer's sons in 1948.

Here is the consecration of St. Raphael by St. Tikhon, the first in the New World


the priest with the mustache is St. Fr. Alexander Hotovitsky. St. Fr. Alexis Toth was there, as was perhaps St. Fr. John Kochurov.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Romanian church architecture is fascinating.  Thanks for the photos.

St. Basil blessing Polish soldiers. Ironic, because Polish soldiers killed him.

There is a story about this monk from Mt Athos. He never use to have a beard and this made him sad because men are suppose to have beards so he asked his Elder what to do. The Elder told him to ask the Mother of God for one. So that is what he did, and his prayer was answered. His beard grew so long he use to wrap it around his waist or carry it in a small sack around his neck. He never cut it because it was a gift from the Theotokos.
