SPIRITUAL READING

The Chinese Martyrs

Thursday, October 12, 2017

It was June 10, 1900, dozens of Chinese Orthodox Christians had fled for their lives and hid in the home of their priest, Father Mitrophan Tsi-Chung. (who was ordained by St. Nicholas of Japan) A rebellion had broken out in China known as the Boxer Rebellion, an uprising against foreign influence which targeted all foreigners and Chinese converts to Christianity. Armed bands roamed the streets searching for foreigners to kill with the tacit approval of the imperial government. The group surrounded the home of Father Mitrophan and while some Orthodox Christians managed to escape, most of them, including the priest, were stabbed or burned alive. His body was found in his yard under a date tree. Father Mitrophan’s family shared in his witness for Christ: his son Isaiah was beheaded, his wife Matushka Tatiana initially managed to escape but was captured and beheaded on June 12 along with nineteen other Christians. The priest’s eight year old son John was brutally mutilated: his ears, nose and toes were cut off but he survived this ghastly attack. He was seen the next day begging for water. Passersby mocked him and called him a follower of devils. When asked if he was in pain he replied “It does not hurt to suffer for Christ”. The Boxers returned for him and finished him off.

An Orthodox Christian woman named Ia Wang, the head teacher at the Orthodox Mission School, was also taken prisoner on June 10 and was stabbed, beaten and buried alive. A sympathetic neighbor picked up her tortured body and took her to his home where he nursed her back to health. Read more...

PANIS' CORNER


The Orthodox Clergy Wife

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

What does it mean to have a wonderful title, and no real job description? The position of the wife of a priest is exactly this. The various languages or every Orthodox country have titles of honor for the priest’s wife. Some might literally be translated as ‘priestess’, while some mean ‘wife of the priest’, and in at least one language — Russian — the priest’s wife is ‘mother’ or ‘little mother’. Read more...
