The Adversary is, as the Church and our own experience teach us, not only wicked but also sly, many have been deceived by him. One of the ways he uses to destroy the most beautiful of all creatures is by spreading the anti-ecclesiastical false teaching of socialism in its many wicked forms. Tens of millions have died at the hands of those deceived by his empty promises. Dozens of thousands of Orthodox priests have the socialists executed, thousands of Churches have they burnt down together with countless Holy Relics, Icons, and other treasures. Saint Luke the Surgeon was one of those hierarchs that, albeit he was spared death, suffered immensely at the hands of his persecutors.
