the Russian revolution produced a harvest of martyrs. From the Czar and family, to obscure monks, to servants and private citizens, people of all ranks died for their faith.Look at a Russian Orthodox calendar for the New Martyrs on the calendar.Of course there was a great deal of dying for other reasons. But many died explictly because they would not renounce the Orthodox faith. New martyrs of Greece, circa 1922, fill the calendar too. There is a martyr of San Francisco, Peter the Aleut: he did not speak Spanish, had been converted by Russians. He encountered a party of Spanish soldiers who interpreted his Orthodox way of crossing himself as anti-Christian, and killed him. He, aware that he could not communicate, still held to his faith till death.the 20th century is richer in martyrs than many another.Deac
