Blessed Fr. Daniel Sysoev

“Father Daniel Sysoev (1974-2009) knew God and loved Him with all his heart and soul. Father Daniel’s love for God was true and sacrificial. Father Daniel endured martyrdom for Christ. He has left considerable work for us to do, as well. For each and every Orthodox Christian the life in Christ is the most important part of living. And this good intention – to live in Christ – has an intercessor in Father Daniel, because the Orthodox know that he is alive, and is praying for all those who have gone astray.” [Source: http://mission-shop.com/fr-daniel-sysoev, slightly edited] * Though not officially declared a Saint yet, there is no doubt Fr. Daniel is a Saint (He was murdered in his church for preaching the truth of the Orthodox Faith to Muslims).
