Let Every Breath Praise the Lord

A monk and a cat, at the Holy Trinity-St Sergius Lavra in Sergiyev Posad, not far from Moscow.

Taken from the LiveJournal of Evgeny Pozniak, a seminarian at the Moscow Theological Seminary. The Seminary – along with the Moscow Theological Academy and excellent icon-painting and church singing schools – is located on the grounds of the Lavra.

Those who can read Russian may also be interested in reading the LiveJournal of another seminarian, Monk Sergey (Viktor) of the Voronezh Theological Seminary. Those who read French should enjoy the following blogs: the anonymous but excellent Moinillion au Quotidien; Claude Lopez-Ginisty's Orthodoxologie, which features the author's translations of various Orthodox texts into French; Maxime's Lexique Personnel d'un Chrétien Orthodoxe Ordinaire; Saint Materne from Belgium; Albocicade's Cigales éloquentes; and, finally, TROPINKA, la petite voie. I'll recommend once again Orthodoxie: L'information orthodoxe sur Internet as the very best source for worldwide Orthodox news in a Western language.

I'm also gratified to note that Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY, finally has a proper website; and don't neglect the website of Holy Trinity Seminary.
