Story: "From the Soviet Army to the priesthood: faith in the shadow of the regime."

"Fr Victor tells how difficult it was to live his faith under the suspicious eyes of the communist regime, and within the strict structure of the military. “There was a bad moment when I was serving at a military facility at the North Pole and my superiors found a copy of the Gospels on me.”

At the same time I was thinking of my wife and the fact that she was certainly happy, up there in heaven, with my new choice when I became a Catholic priest.
