Canonization of the Romanoff Family (Teachings of the Orthodox Church) Christianity. Orthodoxy. Catholicism. Sense of life. Articles for Christians.
I tell you, my friends, don't be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.                But I will warn you whom you should fear. Fear him, who after he has killed, has power to cast into Gehenna. Yes, I tell you, fear him.                Aren't five sparrows sold for two assaria coins? Not one of them is forgotten by God.                But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don't be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows.                I tell you, everyone who confesses me before men, him will the Son of Man also confess before the angels of God;                but he who denies me in the presence of men will be denied in the presence of the angels of God.

Canonization of the Romanoff Family (Teachings of the Orthodox Church)


To the Orthodox Church of America,

Your work is both admirable and welcome, however as a concerned European pro- Tsarist I wish to submit a question to the Q&A feature on your excellent website!

What is your opinion on the last of the Romanoff Tsars and their martyrdom at Ekateringburg? Will the canonisation of the Saint-Tsar-Emperor-Autocrat Nicholas Aleksandrovich II Romanoff and the Empress -- Tsaritsa Aleksandra Fyodorovna -- their 4 daughters and the Tsarevitch -- Grand Duke Aleksei -- be supported by the Orthodox Church in America?


Thank you for your enquiry.

Only the Moscow Patriarchate has the prerogative to determine whether the Royal Family should, or should not, be canonized. As such, if the canonization takes place, the other autocephalous Orthodox Churches, including the Orthodox Church in America, would naturally accept this action.
