Confessor and martyr of the last times

Boris Buzilă, Confessor and martyr of the last times
In the “Russian Church of the Catacombs”, a person that no one would have suspected capable of “something like that” would generate, would “sprout”, a vivid theological thought, topical but also visionary, with a comprehensive and convincing homiletic discourse, as though supporting the last times patristic. His name is Father Aleksandr Men. As extensive and original his work, as unusual, beyond fabulous was his life. The article is a spiritual portrait of this Russian contemporary confessor.
