Description: 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 Hiermonk Vasily’s diary, this book is the most complete account of their lives, miracles and writings available in English.

“Father Vasily, Father Therapont, and Father Trophim were martyred in our own times. They lived in our world. They went to public schools and universities. They faced the same kind of temptations and struggles that young people face. The difference between us and them is that they overcame these temptations of our modern world and obeyed the words of the Gospel: ‘If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast…and come and follow Me’” to the Cross. (Matthew 19:21)       - From the Introduction
