Seraphima's Icons

Leslie Donovan

This is the story of a young girl in present-day Moscow who teaches her father, to set aside his fear and grief in order to serve Christ.

Aimed at upper elementary grades and even adults, this is the story of a young girl in present-day Moscow--Seraphima--who teaches her father, a priest, to set aside his fear and grief in order to serve Christ present in the poor. The central theme is the dignity of the human person created in the image of God. Serafima's icons were written not in egg tempera, but in flesh and blood. In the poor of Moscow, she saw the face of Christ Himself."
