November 18, 2017 marked the 100-year anniversary of St. Tikhon’s elevation to Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia. Thus we remember the saint whose meekness and humility earned him the love and devotion of all. On that day 100 years ago, St. Tikhon (Bellavin) quoted the scroll eaten by the Prophet Ezekiel, on which was written “lamentations, mourning, and woe” (2:10).
