The Seven Homilies - Fr. Gheorghe Calciu

Fr. Gheorghe Calciu gave a series of seven weekly homilies to the youth of communist Romania during lent in 1978.Hundreds of young people risked their lives to hear him, climbing over the walls (Monastery of Radu Voda) when the authorities tried to keep them away. Fr. Gheorghe knew this would mean his imprisonment and probable death, but he was prepared to pay the price. His sermons render an urgency and set the tone for contemporary Christians under impossible conditions, when no human logic can prevail, but only direct dependence on God.
