Translated by Maria Larsen


On Pascha of 1993, three young monks of the famous Optina Hermitage ---Hiermonk Vasily, Monk Therapont, and Monk Trophim---were brutally murdered by a satanist.  The saintly lives of these monks show that their martyric death was a special gift to them from the Lord.  Based on a book published by Optina Hermitage, with many excerpts from Hieromonk Vasily's diary, this book is the most complete account of their lives, miracles, and writings available in English.
