"May the Lord bless the preaching of THE
ORTHODOX WORD. May this preaching serve for the strengthening of true
Orthodox Faith and Christian life in North America, with the help and
prayers of Blessed Father Herman of Alaska, whose sanctity was
manifested on this continent, and the Aleut Martyr Peter, who suffered
martyrdom in San Francisco."
—St. John Maximovitch, Archbishop and
of Shanghai and San Francisco, Theophany, 1965
