On Pascha of 1993, three young monks of the famous Optina Hermitage—Hieromonk 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.
