The Religion which Conquers the World

In the early 1800s, after Napoleon’s defeat, Tsar Alexander I traveled to Paris, France, and wrote a letter back home. He refers to Holy Orthodoxy as “the religion which conquers the world, to the honor of its great head, Christ the Saviour, who gives and crowns the victory.”

It is inspiring when the leader of a nation gives honor to Christ and His Church. May the Lord grant us more world leaders who will do likewise.
