He who places his hope on thee, O Virgin all-glorious, will prosper in all he does.

Third Rome, Again

"Rector of the Vatopedi Monastery Archimandrite Yefrem, who accompanied the Belt of the Mother of God from the convent to Russian cities, believes in Russia's special spiritual mission.

"'Russia won't collapse. On the contrary, it will strengthen and play the leading part in saving Orthodoxy on Earth,' the Bulletin of St. Andrew the First-Called Foundation quoted Father Yefrem as saying."
