This monk was born in America, but he rejected the Protestant religion and joined the Orthodox Faith.

He now lives in Mount Athos, an ancient mountain on the Greek coast that is home to over 20 monasteries and was sanctified when the Mother of God set foot on it in the first century.

Mount Athos is one of the holiest places in the world.

St. Panteleimon Monastery also called Rosikon "The Russian" Monastery.

In this incredible video, the monk explains that when he was growing up, the West hated Russia, but not only because of Communism.

All along, the west was trying to destroy Russia itself.

He also explains that today, Russia - the last great power fighting for the Christian faith - is a victim of constant Western propaganda.

His message:"The World must listen to Russia" seems radical. But is it?   

The fact remains that as the EU abandons Christianity, millions of Europeans are looking to Russia.
