  1. This is a wonderful film!  I was struck by the beautiful, melodic Trisagion sung at the end.  Where can I find this music?  Who wrote it?

  2. What a fantastic short documentary on the life of Saint Luke! I am so thankful for it as I had never heard of his story. I will share it! Thank you again, it was so inspirational!

  3. By the way I would like to ask the Greek people: has your Church considered Jan Hus an Orthodox saint?
    As for Saint Luka and the Soviet Union, maybe you have watched this video already…

  4. Reading his book. "Blessed Surgeon: The Life of St. Luke Archbishop of Simferopol" by Archdeacon Vasiliy Marushchak

  5. Do we have such brave and devoted martyrs among the remaining Christians in America?  And what if that is the fate and destiny that our Creator and Savior Jesus asks of you and me, to remain faithful witnesses despite any suffering and persecution that unholy alliance of Muslims, Zionist, liberals, socialist and Brave New World hedonist may bring?  When your persecutors are inspired by Satan to acts of unspeakable cruelty, when the Demons of Lucifer indwell The Sunni- Wahhabi, the atheist Marxist, the Zionist plutocrat, the criminal and sadist that  are let loose after a nation has rejected the Christ of Jehovah-Yaweh, will you and I stand for our faith with endurance? Dare we even pray for such courage and conviction?

  6. Please, how do I get the wording/text for the movie, (St.Luke) so I could place legends in Portuguese for Brazilians and Portuguese people read it?

  7. Para quem quiser ler em portuguesé só clinar na legenda em portugues, e ver que história linda e comovente e o que foi o regime comunista – nazismo durou 10 anos e comunismo ainda nao acabou em muitos lugares.

  8. The Bible says don't be a priest.
    The Bible says don't worship idols.
    The Bible says don't go to church.
    Will people ever stop disobeying God, our Father, who art in heaven?

  9. I too cried at the destruction of the churches and icons. St. Luke pray for the church, the bride of Christ. Holy God, Holy Almighty, Holy Immortal have mercy on us.

  10. Thank you dear and blessed Souls. I cannot stop crying; I can barely compose myself to write this my heart is moved to the love of Christ and the ever more yearning to serve Him. May our Saviour bless you, your families and your loved one's and all those that have collaborated in creating these short films of the lives of our glorious Saints. Thank you from my heart.

  11. WE ALL NEED TO BECOME SAINTS AND NEVER DIVERT FROM THE TRUTH AND DON’T BE SCARED OF BEING HATED OR PUNISHED FOR FOLLOWING JESUS CHRIST BECAUSE HE LAYED HIS LIFE DOWN FOR US AND HE HAS THE POWER TO RAISE IT BACK ! GODBLESS IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER,SON,HOLYSPIRIT. JESUS CHRIST

  12. This deeply touched me. Talk about a life well lived and finishing strong despite incredible hardships. I ordered a book on his life and can’t wait to read it.

  13. Saint luke used his medical profession to glorify GOD ,saint Luke please pray for those patients that are in need of surgical medical care.

  14. Awesome video! Incredible historical footage… What happened to his 3 children? I'm going to have to look up Saint Luke's entry in the synaxarion.

    Men of faith, men of science, men of God!

  15. Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen…Another wonderful video. Thankyou beloved brethren! Blessings. God Love you…Your Prayers….His Prayers. St. Luke of Crimea , pray unto Christ God to have mercy on us.

  16. Thank you very much for a wonderful documentary! As a Russian person, I have only one peace of criticism / suggestion:

    The song that is played at the beginning on the documentary is know as Voyna Svyashenaya (Holy War) and was written during WW2. In Russia and other Russian speaking countries it is associated with the great horrors of WW2 and efforts to overcome fascism, and has a dear place in the memory of the people. Not to say that the communist regime was without its horrors (as this documentary shows), but I think this particular song is not the best one to use when describing prosecution of Orthodox Christians and destruction of our temples by the bolsheviks. It makes no sense neither chronologically nor thematically. I appreciate that the makers of the documentary might not have known this. Otherwise, great job. God bless you!

  17. Unbearable to see the beautiful churches and icons burned even if it had happened long ago. Sadly the same thing happened to churches recently when daesh had control in Iraq and Syria and as it happens in Egypt when churches are burned or closed with the excuse the police cannot secure them 😢
