Product Description

Mother Maria Skobtsova (1891-1945), a Russian emigree, Orthodox nun, and martyr under the Nazis, is fast gaining recognition as one of the most fascinating religious figures of the twentieth century. In becoming an Orthodox nun in Paris she was determined to pioneer a new form of monasticism, engaged in active charity and the challenge of social justice.

Her home in Paris was at once a soup kitchen for the needy, a center for the renewal of Orthodox thought, and -- during the Nazi occupation -- a haven for the rescue of Jews. For the latter cause she ended her life in a Nazi death camp. In her writings -- ere translated in English for the first time -- he roots her spiritual vision in the gospel mandate, which unites love of God and love of neighbor. Paperback, 192 pages. From Orbis Books.
