When I see a photo like this one of the late Metropolitan Philaret, sometime first hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad, I can see the love and beauty radiating from this particular form of the faith (inseparable from its often admirable traditionalism). The same is true of reading about St Seraphim of Sarov, or the anonymous 19th-century Pilgrim, or the holy fools.

Compared to the online Eastern Orthodox scene it's like night and day.
