Ennobling Literature

Essential to understanding these difficult times is Fr Seraphim Rose’s and Father Herman Podmoshensky’s “Orthodox Survival Course”, a rare and most valued orthodox resource. Fr Seraphim and Fr Herman taught this course in the 70′s at the Platina monastery. Fr Herman continued to teach it until 1998 and Fr Damascene Christensen traveled the world presenting it to various groups. As a result many were converted to Orthodoxy.

Being humbly grateful to the creators of this document for their trust and thanking them for handing it to us for publication on our website, we are making it available for download to those who would like to use it with respect and in fear of God as an invaluable resource for understanding the world we live in today.
