The pride of our academy are our saints. This gives us the reason to continue. From St. Philaret of Moscow and St. Theopan the Recluse till St. Tikhon of Moscow and St. John of Kronstadt our forerunners enlighten the path on which we must go.
We must have the courage to learn about them, to learn from them and to follow them.
Based on Bishop Ambrose of Peterhof, dean of the St. Petersburg’s Theological Academy
