Dear worthy fathers, brothers and sisters.
Let me briefly introduce myself. My name is Igor. I am Russian and I am living in Volgograd. There is a big city on the right side of the Volga. Fortunately I have never known another religion except Orthodox. I was baptized from childhood. Communist government did not encourage religion in the country those times. On the contrary authorities were able to fire you out for religion. The faith was hidden in a depth of family life. But at childhood I was not really religion as many other people. Since the middle of 90th I have been trying to live with the Christian Orthodox church. My professional scope is very far away from theology. I am an internal auditor at the gas transport company. The main target is my family. I wish to uncover them the real beauty of human life which is possible through the Holy Communion. We are churchgoers of the Epiphany Parish at the Volgograd Diocese (www.vlgeparh.com) at the Moscow Patriarchate (www.mospat.ru). Our parish is responsible for orthodox pilgrims throughout Russian Holy places. From time to time I log in “monachos.net” to look for opinions other members of Orthodox churches. And recently I have dared to write some words.
Welcome to monachos.net Igor! May God lead you and your family deeper into the faith of His Holy Church!
