''Prepared by Tatyana Shvetsova''
This program is a narrative about three martyrs from the Optina Pustyn monastery, in Central Russia. All three monks were killed by a satanist on Easter night in 1993. We would like to pay homage to the memory of these three remarkable people, hoping their story will serve to strengthen the spirit of many Christians, who sincerely embrace the Faith.
The decree announcing the return of [[Optina Monastery|Optina Pustyn]] to the [[Church of Russia|Russian Orthodox Church]] was signed on [[November 17]], 1987. That moment marks the beginning of the revival of this holy sanctuary.
