When I lived in Ottawa,
I talked to a man who with his family years ago,
was visiting Holy Dormition Monastery.
The man was at the liturgy and when the Beatitudes were being sung,
and he heard the lines:
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
The man happened to look over at Fr. Roman and
Fr. Roman's face was shining with joy...
