But the more the Church endured persecution, the brighter the lanterns of faith and piety shone in the Russian land. From the Tsar and the members of the Royal Family close to him in spirit, from archpastors and simple monastics, priests, deacons to laypersons came forth a powerful spiritual army of the Church Militant. By 1918, the Russian Church showed two sorts of podvig&mdash;that of martyrdom and that of confession. Thank God, today we see how the blood of many millions of the host of Martyrs and Confessors who turned the Russian land red became the seeds of salvation for the spiritual rebirth of our people, in the Fatherland and in the diaspora.</p></div> Western American Diocese http://wad.orthodoxws.com/news_180717_1.html HOLY ASCENSION RUSSIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH OF SACRAMENTO CELEBRATED ITS FEAST DAY http://wad.orthodoxws.com/news_180519_1.html Thu, 17 May 2018 00:00:00 -0400 <div><img border="0" hspace="5" vspace="0" align="left" src="https://wad.orthodoxws.com/display_image.php?ext=jpg&relativeimage=images/news/2018/Photo-Galleries/05-17-Ascension-of-our-Lord-Sacramento/Ascension_Sacramento_22.jpg&archive=0&final_h=107&final_w=160&percent=100"><p>On May 17, 2018, the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord, Holy Ascension Russian Orthodox Church of Sacramento celebrated its Patronal Feast Day.</p> <p>His Eminence KYRILL Archbishop of San Francisco and Western America presided over the Divine Liturgy and festivities.
