(Ioan Alexandru, The Confessor. Indedited memories from the Memorialist’s Journal
The text contains some fragments from the author’s diary, written between 1986-1988. The fragments refer to the poet Ioan Alexandru and to his faith. His way of practicing his religion was exteriorized, gesticulatory and somewhat eccentric, to the stupefaction of secular authority. Although he was loudly professing his faith, his spiritual “choices” were respected by the authorities. Ioan Alexandru had a hymnographer “vocation”, his radical and ardent missionary recommending him as a true confessor.
