The Uncovering of the Honorable Relics of the Hierarch and Wonderworker John, Archbishop of Shanghai and San Francisco (+1966)

“The Lord keepeth all their bones, not one of them shall be broken” (Ps.33)

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

In the year 1993 from the Nativity in the Flesh of God the Word, on the feast of St. Chariton the Confessor, October 11, the All- merciful Lord revealed to us sinners the greatest mercy through the uncovering of the holy and much-healing relics of the Hierarch and Wonderworker John, Archbishop of Shanghai and San Francisco who rests in the beautifully embellished and prayer-filled sepulchre, untouched for twenty-seven years after burial, under the Cathedral of the Most Holy Mother of God, Joy of All Who Sorrow.

Monday was a strict fast day for all those who took part in this holy obedience to the Church. Many prepared by serving the Divine Liturgy and through Confession. In the evening, after Vespers was served at the altar of our Holy Father John of Kronstadt, Wonderworker of all Russia, in whose canonization the ever-memorable Vladyka John took part, a blessing was taken from the ruling Archbishop Anthony around eight o’clock in the evening by Priest George Kurtov, Priest Alexander Krassovsky, Protodeacon Nikolai Porshnikoff, Deacon Alexei Kotar, and Reader Vladimir Krassovsky. After the blessing these participants entered the holy sepulchre in order to make the necessary preparations which earlier had been blessed by His Grace, the ruling Archbishop. In the sepulchre the caretaker, Boris Michailovich Troyan, was already working and waiting.

A long table was prepared on which was later placed the new, temporary, pine casket. Crowbars, hammers and other instruments were brought in. All candle stands, analoys, and flowers were placed aside to make more room for the work. Candles were burning on the candle stands and the entire sepulchre was fully illumined.

After the initial preparation work was completed, and after the exclamation “Blessed is our God,” and the beginning prayers, they began to read the Gospel from St. John over the casket, In the beginning was the Word. Around nine o’clock in the evening during the reading of the Holy Gospel, the ruling bishop of Western America, Vladyka Archbishop Anthony, Archbishop Laurus of Syracuse and Holy Trinity, Bishop Kyrill of Seattle, Archpriest Stephan Pavlenko, Archpriest Peter Perekrestov, Priest Sergey Kotar, Hieromonk Peter (Loukianoff), Priest Paul Iwaszewicz and Hierodeacon Andronik (Taratuchin) arrived at the holy sepulchre. All together there were fifteen people: three hierarchs, seven priests, three deacons, one reader, and one layman.

All three bishops, as well as all the priests, read from the Holy Gospel. Around 9:07, after the Gospel readings, the bishops began to serve a full Pannykhida which was sung by the clergy. This ended around 9:45 P.M. Before the chanting of Memory Eternal the “Prayer Before the Beginning of Every Good Work” was read. Vladyka then turned to all those present with the following words, “Honored Vladykas, Fathers, and Brethren; the Lord has sent us in holy obedience to our Church in order to examine and report concerning the Continue reading “The Uncovering of the Honorable Relics of the Hierarch and Wonderworker John, Archbishop of Shanghai and San Francisco (+1966)”

ST JOHN MAXIMOVITCH IN FRANCE

Reminiscences of his Spiritual Daughter

by Zinaida V. Julem

The period of Blessed John’s life in France has so far been rather obscure, and not much information about it has been available. A devoted spiritual daughter of his, the author of these memoirs, Zinaida V. Julem, fills in this gap, giving us a view from the “inside” and disclosing the mystical world of perhaps the holiest man of the 20th-century. Surely a prophet of such calibre could not get by without evoking envy and hatred, just as did the prophets of old. But to conceal this righteous man from the view of the thirsting new generation would be a sin, because the glory of God, revealed in the lives of the righteous, serves to enkindle that divine fire which Christ our Lord wishes to have burning upon this earth. (St. Luke 12:49).

In anticipation of the forthcoming 20th anniversary of Blessed John’s repose, which will occur on June 19/July 2, 1986, we here present a spiritual portrait of this wonderworker who once walked among us. This account comes from a simple loving heart, guarded by the Patristic awareness of sobriety. Realizing that Blessed John was touched by Divinity and was in contact with the mind of his Creator, the author was able to peer into the mystery of his sanctity. Although her observations only give us glimpses, they offer clear testimony to the close presence of the other world for which the Holy Orthodox Church prepares its children, and to the ability of God’s saints to penetrate that realm even while on earth. That mystery, that revelation beyond our glimpses, remains hidden in God. It is opened to those who, like Blessed John, ascend on the wings of divine love for God and their neighbor. And those of us who watch from below are given renewed hope and the inspiration to increase our upward striving.

REMINISCENCES OF NUN EUPHEMIA, AS TOLD TO THE NUNS OF HOLY CROSS SKETE

from THE ORTHODOX WORD, No. 189, pp. 176-181

THE ORPHANAGE

There were always wars in China. The Chinese had large families with many children, and there was very little to eat. To save on food, they would get rid of newborns, placing them out on the street to freeze to death. Vladika John would pick them up and bring them to the orphanage. On these outings, the deacon of the cathedral would follow him in order to help and protect him. Once Vladika said to this deacon about a child, “Pick him up.” The deacon objected, “But he’s Chinese.” “But he is made in the image of God,” said Vladika. 

Thus the orphanage grew. Vladika John asked my mother Lydia to Continue reading “Living places of Saint John Maximovitch (+1966)”

REASONS TO BELIEVE

Not only is the Bible filled with the fundamentals of science, but it is as much as 3,000 years ahead of its time. The Bible’s statements in most cases directly contradicted the science of the day in which they were made. When modern scientific knowledge approaches reality, the divine accuracy of the scriptures is substantiated. For example:

Biblical Statement Science Then Science Now
Earth is a sphere (Is. 40:22). Earth’s a flat disk. Earth is a sphere
Number of stars exceeds a billion (Jer. 33:22). Number of stars totals 1,100 Number of stars exceeds a billion
Every star is different (1 Cor 15:41). All stars are the same. Every star is different.
Light is in motion (Job 38:19-20). Light is fixed in place. Light is in motion.
Air has weight (Job 28:25). Air is weightless. Air has weight.
Winds blow in cyclones (Eccl. 1:6). Winds blow straight. Winds blow in cyclones.
Blood is a source of life and healing (Lev. 17:11). Sick people must bled. Blood is a source of life and healing.

For centuries the conjectures of science also were at odds with Genesis 1 concerning the origin and development of Earth and of life on Earth. However, science has progressed beyond these conjectures and now agrees with Genesis 1 in the initial conditions of Earth, the description of subsequent events, and in the order of these events. The probability that Moses, writing more than 3,400 years ago, would have guessed all these details is less than one in trillions. Below is a partial list of other fundamentals of science explained in the Bible:

  • conservation of mass and energy (Eccl. 1:9; Eccl. 3:14-15).
  • water cycle (Eccl. 1:7; Is. 55:10).
  • gravity (Job 26:7; Job 38:31-33).
  • Pleiades and Orion as gravitationally bound star groups (Job 38:31). NOTE: All other star groups visible to the naked eye are unbound, with the possible exception of the Hyades.
  • effect of emotions on physical health (Prov. 16:24; Prov. 17:22).
  • control of contagious diseases (Lev. 13:4546).
  • importance of sanitation to health (Lev.; Num. 19: Deut. 23:12-13). control of cancer and heart disease (Lev. 7-19).

In the crucible of scientific investigation, the Bible has proven invariably to be correct. No other book, ancient or modem, can make this claim; but then, no other book has been written (through men) by God.

JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

I am a priest in the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, serving in the cathedral of St John the Baptist in Washington, D.C. There are some almost uncanny parallels between our lives, even down to the grumpy choir directors. I was (and sometimes still am) the grumpy choir director, however.

I became interested and involved in Anglicanism through a singing job in a “high” church in 1968. At the time, my focus was primarily musical. My parents were devout Southern Baptists, and, while I now appreciate their humility and devotion, in my youth I did not so much. The Episcopal Church offered an escape from the music and worship of the Baptists, which, shall we say, were not to my taste.

The Western liturgical tradition as carried on by the high-church Anglicans seemed to me to be just the right combination of grandness and sobriety justly suited to worship. Having just come from the Baptists, the intellectual and spiritual confusion which at length gave rise to tradition-destroying innovations did not concern me for a long time. I chalked it up to our fallen state, for which God was making accommodations which I did not understand. I thought I could press on for the sake of art and faith, and pray that everything would come out alright. It was going to take a great deal to make me want to throw away Tallis, Byrd, Weelkes, Purcell, …, RVW, Walton, Britten, … , not to mention all the great hymns and tunes, and the gorgeous language of the (old) Prayer Book and Psalter.

A great many things happened, but I’ll cut to the chase. In 1984 or 5, a lesbian member of our parish who sang in my choir asked me to be a member of a committee to help her explore a calling to the priesthood. Needless to say, I begged off. But I did not have the courage to tell her that the thought of her as a priest made me sick. You may be familiar with the musical “Fiddler on the Continue reading “The Personal Story of Fr.

LA PRIÈRE DE JÉSUS

La confession a donné à mon âme beaucoup de joie, parce que Dieu et les anges, qui l’attendaient, se sont réjouis. Tu as réussi à faire honte au Diable, lui qui se réjouit grandement quand quelqu’un cache ses pensées à son père spirituel.

Quand un serpent sort de sa tanière, il se précipite pour se cacher quelque part parce qu’il sent qu’il sera frappé – la même chose se produit avec une pensée diabolique, qui est comme un serpent venimeux. Quand une telle pensée quitte la bouche d’une personne, elle se disperse et disparaît, parce que la confession est humilité, et puisque Satan ne peut même pas supporter l’odeur de l’humilité, comment pourrait-il rester après une humble confession sincère?

Mon enfant, je te souhaite un bon début et un progrès prudent. N’aie pas honte devant moi. Ne me vois pas comme un homme, mais comme un représentant de Dieu. Dis-moi tout, même si tu as une mauvaise pensée sur moi, parce que je suis expérimenté au sujet des influences démoniaques, et je sais comment le Diable combat homme.

Je sais que les enfants spirituels ont des cœurs simples et que si les mauvaises pensées viennent à eux, cela est dû à la malice du Diable et à l’ego de l’enfant spirituel, qui est autorisé à tomber et à avoir des pensées contre son frère, afin que l’enfant spirituel puisse être plus humble. Par conséquent, ne t’inquiète pas. Je vais toujours me réjouir quand tu me parles librement et sincèrement , car sans confession franche, il n’y aura pas de progrès spirituel.

Mon enfant, n’aie pas de soucis. J’ai pris ton fardeau. Je te prie seulement d’être en paix. Tes paroles peuvent être seulement sur le papier, mais je sens la force, le sens et l’essence de ce que tu écris; J’entre dans l’esprit de tes mots. Je te prie d’être en paix à partir de maintenant. Tu es tout pardonné avec la confession que tu as faite. Satan a perçu ton caractère et te tourmente, mais sans que rien de grave n’ait eu lieu. Tout ce que tu écris (c’est à dire les pensées qui te torturent) est une astuce du Diable pour te faire désespérer, être affligé, et ainsi de suite. Jette tout ce qui t’est arrivé dans les profondeurs de la mer. Trace une nouvelle voie dans ta vie. Si tu continues à penser de la même façon, sache que tu vas devenir la risée des démons. Je te prie, de m’être seulement obéissant.

Après ta confession, tout a été pardonné, alors passe l’éponge. Ne gratte pas une blessure qui t’a fait tant souffrir. Ne sois pas trompé par la pensée que c’est de ta faute. Si vous ne l’avais pas amené chez les médecins, etc, alors ces pensées auraient raison de te combattre. Alors que, les choses étant ce qu’elles sont maintenant, tu as rempli ton devoir. Dieu a voulu le prendre, pour une raison que seule Son infinie sagesse connaît, tandis que tu envisages que tu l’as tué! Sois prudent avec cette pensée, sinon il peut se cacher dans ton cœur. Il s’agit d’une ruse du Diable pour te faire du mal, comme il sait le faire. Ce filou habile a noyé dans les profondeurs de l’enfer des multitudes innombrables par le désespoir. Lorsque quelque chose arrive et que le Diable voit qu’une personne est bouleversée par elle, son astuce consiste à empiler une multitude de pensées soi-disant légitimes afin de mener la pauvre personne dans une grande tempête et la noyer. (Comme dit le proverbe, un renard aime la bagarre). Et quand l’orage passe, elle voit qu’elle était en danger de se noyer dans une cuillère d’eau seulement.

Sois humble, et à partir de maintenant confesse-toi, car la confession contient la très sainte humilité, sans laquelle personne n’est sauvé. Le Diable se réjouit grandement quand il réussit à persuader une personne de cacher des pensées diaboliques. C’est parce qu’il va atteindre son but prémédité de détruire l’âme.

Je t’ai écrit au sujet de la conscience, de devoir veiller à ne pas faire quelque chose qui va donner lieu à des reproches et nous condamner. Garde à l’esprit que Dieu Qui voit tout et que rien n’est caché à Ses yeux. Alors, comment pourrais-je dire des mensonges devant Dieu? Ne sais-tu pas que les mensonges viennent du Diable, et que, en n’étant pas prudent, ils deviennent une pratique, une habitude, puis une passion, et ne sais-tu pas que les menteurs n’hériteront pas le Royaume de Dieu? (cf. Ap 21, 8). Crains Dieu. Dieu n’est pas content des offrandes matérielles quand nous négligeons de veiller sur notre cœur intérieur. Mais il est nécessaire de faire celles-ci [les offrande] également sans négliger de faire les autres. (cf. Mt 23:23). Veille sur ta conscience, car nous ne savons pas l’heure de notre mort. Et si nous ne remboursons pas à notre créancier (c’est-à-dire à notre conscience) tout ce que nous lui devons, elle nous accusera avec véhémence, et sans retenue. Alors -hélas!- notre bouche sera réduite au silence, n’ayant pas de réponse à donner.

Chaque nuit, examine la façon dont tu as passé la journée, et à l’examen du matin comment la nuit s’est passée, de sorte que tu saches où en sont les comptes de ton âme. Si tu constates une perte, essaie de la retrouver par la prudence et la vigueur. Si tu constates un bénéfice, glorifie Dieu, ton aide invisible. Ne laisse pas ta conscience te poindre pour longtemps, mais donne-lui rapidement ce qu’elle veut, de peur qu’elle ne t’amènes au juge et à la prison (cf. Mt. 5:25). Est-ce que ta conscience veut que tu t’occupes de ta règle de prière et retrouve la prière? Donne-lui ces choses, et voici, tu es délivrer de l’obligation d’aller devant le juge. N’affaiblis pas la voix salvatrice de ta conscience en l’ignorant, parce que plus tard, tu le regretteras en vain.

JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

Most of us knew this sort of thing was coming. They cite concerns over ‘biblical accuracy’ without offering so much as one single example of any Biblical inaccuracy from Hank.

The “Bible Answer Man” radio show program with Hank Hanegraaff has been booted from Bott Radio Network over concerns regarding ‘biblical accuracy’, following Hanegraaff’s conversion into the Eastern Orthodox Church.

“We want to make sure that our listeners know that the programming that we have on Bott Radio Network is thoroughly biblical,” said BRN President Richard P. Bott II, a member of Lenexa Baptist Church in Lenexa, Kansas, according to Baptist Press.

BRN had reportedly been broadcasting the “Bible Answer Man” since the 1980s, even before Hanegraaff joined the show in 1989.

The Christian Post confirmed last week that Hanegraaff, who is also the president and chairman of the Christian Research Institute, was chrismated on Palm Sunday at Saint Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Some, such as Rod Dreher, an Orthodox Christian and author of the New York Times best-selling book The Benedict Option, told CP last week that the news of Hanegraaff joining the Orthodox Church is “astounding.”

“Many evangelicals seek the early church; well here it is, in Orthodoxy,” Dreher said.

“I am sure some will be scandalized by Hanegraaff’s conversion but I hope at least some will wonder how someone as knowledgeable about the Bible as Hank could convert to Orthodoxy, and go to a Divine Liturgy to taste and see what it’s like.”

Saint John Maximovitch of Shanghai & San Francisco (+1966)

July 2

This brightly-shining Saint of our own day was born in Russia in 1896. In 1921 his family fled the Russian Revolution to Serbia, where he became a monk and was ordained a priest. From the time of his entry into monastic life he adopted a severely ascetical way of life: for the rest of his life he never slept in a bed, sleeping only briefly in a chair or prostrated before the icons. He ate one meal a day, in the evening. Teaching seminarians in Serbia, he instructed them each day to devote six hours to divine services, six hours to prayer (not including the divine services!), six hours to good works, and six hours to rest (these six hours obviously included eating and bathing as well as sleeping). Whether his seminarians followed his counsels we do not know, but he himself not only followed but exceeded them.

In 1934 he was made Bishop of Shanghai (in the Russian Church Abroad), where he served not only the Russian émigré community but a number of native Chinese Orthodox; from time to time he served the Divine Liturgy in Chinese. When the Communists took power in China, he laboured tirelessly to evacuate his flock to safety, first to the Philippines, then to various western countries including the United States. He served as Bishop in Paris and Brussels, then, in 1962 was made Archbishop of San Francisco. Throughout his life as monk and hierarch he was revered (and sometimes condemned) for his ascetical labours and unceasing intercessions. During his life and ever since, numerous miraculous healings of all manner of afflictions have been accomplished through his prayers.

Once, in Shanghai, a caretaker, investigating strange noises in the cathedral after midnight, discovered Bishop John standing in the belltower, looking down on the city and praying for the people. Years later, when he visited Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, New York, the priest responsible for hosting him found the saint walking through the halls of the monastery, standing outside the door of each room and praying for the monk or seminarian sleeping within. When the Archbishop had prayed outside each room, he returned to the beginning of his circuit and began praying again; and so he spent the entire night

Even as Archbishop, he lived in near-absolute poverty. His appearance was striking: His cassock was made of blue Chinese “peasant cloth,” crudely decorated with crosses stitched by orphans who had been in his care in Shanghai. His Bishop’s “miter” was often a cloth cap to which he had glued paper icons. Even in the United States, even while serving the Divine Liturgy (which he did every day), he went barefoot in all seasons. (Eventually, after he was hospitalized with an infected foot, his Metropolitan ordered him to wear shoes; thereafter, he wore sandals). Needless to say, he was an embarrassment to those who like their bishops to make a more worldly appearance, but among his various flocks throughout the world, there were always those who recognized him as a Saint in his own lifetime.

Following his repose in 1966, a steady stream of healings and other miracles was accomplished through his intercessions, and in 1996 he was glorified as a Saint of the Church. His incorrupt and wonder-working relics can be venerated at his cathedral in San Francisco. At St John’s funeral, the eulogist told his mourners (and all of us): because Archbishop John was able to live the spirituality of the Orthodox Church so fully, even in modern, western, urban society, we are without excuse

Footnote: An acquaintance of Monk John once met him on a train in Serbia. When asked his destination, Monk John replied, “I’m going to straighten out a mistake. I’ve gotten a letter meant for some other John whom they intend to make a bishop.” The same person met him again on his return journey and asked if he had been able to resolve his problem. John answered, “The mistake is much worse than I thought: they did make me a bishop.”
