Pravoslavie.ru journalist Nun Juliana (Rahlina) reposes in the Lord

Moscow, June 4, 2018

    

Nun Juliana (Anastasia Rahlina) in the world, formerly a journalist for pravoslavie.ru, reposed in the Lord on Saturday after a lengthy battle with cancer, reports pravoslavie.ru.

Anastasia was seriously ill in the last year of her life. In preparation for death, she took monastic vows in December with the name of Juliana in honor of St. Juliana of Vyazma and Novotorg.

She was blessed to commune of the Holy Body and Blood of Christ in the hospital on the eve of her repose, Foma reports.

“Mother Juliana endured everything with faith and hope in the mercy of God. She communed of the holy Mysteries of Christ to her last breath… [God] allowed her not only to believe in Him, but to suffer for Him. And Mother Juliana’s suffering was like the suffering of the great martyrs,” a message posted on Mother Juliana’s Facebook page reads.

She was a long-time colleague of pravoslavie.ru, an editor, and a wonderful author. Many of her works were among the most popular with the readers of pravoslavie.ru. Several of her works have been translated into English and published on orthochristian.com.

Her funeral will be held tomorrow morning in Moscow.

We ask your prayers for the newly-departed handmaiden of God Nun Juliana. May her memory be eternal!

The cross which the Lord has preserved for us, and even in an active church, is not just a relic or amazing artistic image—it is a wonderworker. The endless stream of pilgrims to it bears witness: the Russian heart seeks the Cross. The Godenov cross is a unique sacred object, miraculously found many centuries ago in Yaroslavl. And as in the past, thousands of pilgrims come to the cross. Igumena Evstolia (Afonina), abbess of the Pereslavl-Nikolsky Monastery, whose podvoriye in the city of Godenovo houses the sacred cross in its St. John Chrysostom church, speaks on the cross, its history, and the miracles connected with it.

When I saw him praying in church, then I thought: if there is some person who holds the helm of the whole world, it isn’t the president of America, it isn’t a communist, it isn’t any person of this world—it’s Elder Paisios. He is able to steer the rudder of the whole world.

Of course I prayed, and asked Great Martyr Barbara, because it was the eve of her commemoration. And the prosphora turned out fine! Sunday, at the Liturgy, Father Superior sees the prosphora and they are normal service prosphora… “Fr. Cyprian, whose prosphora are these?” “Ours, Batiushka.” “What happened to you?” “Batiushka, it’s God’s mercy.”

In the Soviet years, as it still is today, it was called Elbrus Avenue. Commander Igor Rozin of the avalanche squad, a rescuer and mountain climber, travelled on it more than once. Priest Igor hurried the same way from Terskol to services. He was ordained in 1999, being given the only surviving building from 1937 as a church. “Once I happened to meet him—I hadn’t seen him in a long time. He asked if I could restore an old Bible for him. I was surprised,” related Dmitry, a neighbor of the Rozin family in Terskol and a colleague from the Vysokogorny Institute. “And he said: ‘I’ve become a priest.’
