Hat tip: M.C.  Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia considers it premature to discuss possible canonization of his grandfather – the priest Vasile Gundeaev.

“I knew my grandfather well, was indeed a great man. Many good things I learned from him, and that because of his prayers. But the mere respect and love shown even a man can be an argument for his canonization “, – said Patriarch Kirill Sunday in his meeting with representatives of civil society in Alma-Ata, which took place at Opera and Ballet in this Local.

So the answer to the question of a Christian patriarch in the canonization of Metropolitan Joseph (Cernov) of Alma-Ata, which had been the Metropolitan of this region from 1960 until 1975. Patriarch Kirill  testified that he met personally Metropolitan Joseph, who was a friend of his father the spiritual – Metropolitan Nicodemus (Rotov), and remember very well “that was indeed an extraordinary man.”
