Archbishop Leonty of Chilie
One such hierarch, who died just ten years ago, almost in oblivion, was Archbishop Leonty of Chile, a fearless propagator of Orthodox Christi anity at first in Russia and later outside of it. His historic place is that of a true confessor of the Christianity of the heart.
In Chile he founded a monastic community, oneof whose members was the later Bishop Savva of Edmonton, Canada. Vladika brought him into his monastic brotherhood, inspired him towards the monastic ideal, ton sured him and placed him as an independent pastor who later, as a zealous bishop, started a movement of spiritual renewal in the Russian Church and is now known as the chronicler of the miraculous life of Blessed Archbishop John Maximovitch.
‘The heavenly,glorification of the Tsar-martyr!’ And having bowed to me slightly, he continued on his way to the kathedra (in the center of the church).
