Grand Duchess Elizabeth of Russia: New Martyr of the Communist Yoke

Lubov Millar

“The author has enhanced her spiritual portrait with hitherto unpublished letters, including a revealing exchange between the Grand Duchess and her closest relatives on the subject of her conversion to Orthodoxy, a step which she took after careful deliberation and, as she herself affirmed, ‘from a pure conscience.’ In chronicling further her spiritual journey, the author details the establishment in Moscow of the Martha and Mary Convent of Mercy, a seminal institution which the Grand Duchess intended should combine the active and contemplative life exemplified in the Gospel by the sisters of Lazarus. It was an ideal to which the Grand Duchess applied herself with quiet, purposeful determination born of love for Christ, a determination which sustained her through difficult times and, in her final agony, won for her a martyr’s crown. Fascinating as a historical biography, the book is also remarkably relevant to spiritual seekers and strugglers of today, illustrating as it does the practical realization of timeless spiritual principles against a background—of waning faith, decaying morals and social ills—not so very different from our own.”
