Fr. Roman Braga ~ remembering another's words

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...

Beautiful! I am enjoying all you are sharing here about Fr. Roman Braga. Being new to Orthodoxy, I knew nothing of him at all until very recently.
