St. Raphael, Bishop of Brooklyn, "The Good Shepherd of the Lost Sheep in America"
St. Raphael reveals to us the royal way to salvation. He did not seek honor for himself. No matter the cost, no matter the price, he followed Christ. No matter how hard the Cross, no matter how little the reward, he followed Him.
He exemplifies the image of a true Orthodox bishop who loves the Holy Tradition. He received the faith from his predecessors and sought to faithfully teach this faith to his spiritual sons. He was a man of prayer. He loved and lived the liturgical life of the Church, and this was his spiritual support. He was not an innovator; it did not "change" anything. In his pastoral work he had no other agenda than to be faithful to the task he had received. Each of his thoughts and plans centered on the people he served. How to reconcile enemies? How to bring back the rejected? How to raise children? How to start a missionary work? What education to give a priest?...
