Russian Resurrection (so-called)

Amazing. This Moscow Patriarchate priest had grown famous– or infamous– for preaching to and converting Muslims, for which he was receiving death threats. Then he’s killed. The Patriarchate is asking no one to jump to conclusions, and the state is looking to use this as an excuse to ban Protestants (“foreign sects”).

Father Daniil, ye knew not for what ye were martyred. NFTU

(NCregister) A masked gunman entered a Russian Orthodox church in Moscow Nov. 19 and shot a priest who had been preaching to Muslims and warning about the growing Muslim minority in Russia, according to an article in this morning’s New York Times.

Father Daniil Sysoyev, 34, died on his way to hospital. The church’s choir master also had been injured in the attack and was in the hospital under armed guard.

Father Sysoyev had been receiving death threats for some time because he was converting Muslims and criticizing Islam, prosecutors and Church officials said. But that didn’t stop him.
