Our spiritual father - archpriest Vasiliy Ermakov

"Pray, believe, the God will save us and our saint Mother – Russia. Only don’t lose courage and never drive God out of your heart. You should know that when you are ina difficult situation – you can always find an example in the life surrounding you and you will find support of your close people. My Russian people, children of the XXI century, of the after war period – keep your orthodox faith, and God will never leave you in all our life."

Father Vasiliy in 2003 approved the idea of creating the site about Russian spiritual and cultural and created its name - «Russia in colours». With his blessing not only the site with such a name, but Orthodox Scientific- Enlightenig Society was founded on the Blessed Ground in Jerusalem, that realized this internet-project.

Moreover in internet there is the site of Archpries Vasiliy Ermakov, devote to the father Vasiliy Ermakov. There is also a site named Serafim Garden, where there are a lot of materials about the father, rare photos with spiritual offsprings from Saint Petersburg, made with the father’s blessing.
