Father Scarlat Porcescu, for Two Decades in the World of Eternity

1 September 2012

The Life of Father Scarlat Porcescu can be easily likened to a ship on a stormy sea, which, although it is often struck by high waves, it never ceases to forward to the smooth haven. The Professionalism that he showed for the formation of so many future priests’ generations in the authentic Orthodox spirit, devotion and consistency for the altar service, perseverance in keeping the true faith, the tact which showed in solving difficult administrative situations, the fervor in the activity of historical research and his moral character are descriptions suited for a major figure of Moldavian intellectuality and culture.
