Archimandrite Justin (Popovic) ,pt 1/3 - "He always preached...":
"He always preached,regardless of number of people in church..."
"He spoke harshly,he said what he meant,he didn't mince his words..."
"He was preaching so fervently,that it seemed to me once he did not touch the ground.It was St.Elias.As if he saw St.Elias Himself."
As an ecclesiastical person and clergyman Father Justin spent 31 years in the Ćelije Monastery under the continuous surveillance of the Communist Party police. Considered ineligible by the Communist party, together with a few fellow professors, he was ousted from the Faculty in 1945. The Communists limited his public appearances within monastic confines.
A devoted monk and philosopher of the Eastern Orthodox theology, elder Justin Popović was a great critic of ecumenism, providing it was inclined towards relativization of the God's Truth. (Fr. John Meyendorff, professor of the Academy of St. Vladimir now in Crestwood, New York (associated with Columbia University) - and every bit as much a critic of the "Catholic novelties" and the Pope's anti-Christianity. Until the end of his life Father Justin was a dedicated creator, and it is no wonder that his work is considered as a great contribution to the Orthodox theology and he himself as the secret conscience of the Serbian Church and the entire martyr's Orthodox religion (according to John N. Karmiris, the Greek academician).
